About Florists' Day
Florist’s Day has no official status among professional holidays in Russia, but the tradition started in 2009 when the “florist” profession’s qualifications were approved. Florist’s Union of Russia developed the requirements for qualification, as well as the list of requirements for the skills and florist’s responsibilities.
Since then, florists of Russia celebrate their professional holiday, exhibiting their best works. All those amazing floral art pieces are designed to show people the beauty of the florist’s work, as well as to attract the attention of potential customers who are ready to please their loved ones, relatives and friends with a bright, colorful bouquet of flowers.
It is believed that florists began in Ancient Egypt, where flowers were used to decorate temples, palaces and noble houses. Later, the ancient Greeks developed the wreath’s weaving, bouquets composing and floral arrangements.
Later, in the era of Christianity in Europe, the tradition of giving bouquets of flowers appeared and consolidated. And, of course, such gifts were addressed primarily to women in recognition of their beauty, expression of feelings and love for them. Soon a bouquet of flowers in a vase became an ornament of the table and the usual decoration of a room in the house.
