Flower & business design insights, inspiration, and advise for the modern day florist (or wannabe florist).
You don’t need to include everything you’ve ever made in your portfolio. You just need to include the best items that communicate value to your ideal clients. Very few people are going to scroll through your 103 items. However, if you have seven items that appeal to your client and match the quality they’re going for, you’ve done your “job.” Consider organizing your work by event, weddings, corporate, just because, and so on.
