How does the journey to floristry begin? For many of us, including me, it was an impulse that I felt when I entered a flower shop and saw the flower assortment and my heart said “YES”. At that moment I was only thinking about how beautiful and charming it is to be a florist, after all, it is among other things, the ideal work for a girl :)   Natalia zhizko Blog Hot Rock RoundOn Thursd   The workdays began and suddenly it turned out that in addition to being very beautiful, interesting, exciting and opening up a whole new world, it is work that is also a very serious job that is associated with a large amount of physical work, a complex schedule, skills to work with various tools, and it is also important to have a constructive and technical mindset.

The shade of roses is unique, or at least I don’t know the varieties of roses that are similar to it. In my designs I often use brown color and expanding the assortment of flowers in a brown hue is a real gift for me.
