How would you define this book, and for whom did you write it?
I wrote this book for florists who want to run a successful small business and not have a hobby. The book is about how to become a wedding florist. From finding your niche to how to book clients and turn a profit, to perfecting wedding week production schedules, it’s the nitty-gritty of what you need to know to run a successful and profitable wedding business.
What makes this book unique?
Most books for florists focus on the design aspect, color theory, and beautiful inspiration images, but Falling into Flowers shares business strategies specifically for floral designers. This book does not focus on design; instead, it focuses on the steps and strategies that will help keep you in business.

I hope readers will walk away with confidence in their ability to book clients who value their work and to run a profitable business that brings them joy.
