Employment in floral design is expected to decline by 3 percent through 2024, according to the U.S. Department of Labor, as people purchase fewer elaborate floral arrangements. The emergence of full-service floral departments in grocery stores, as well as opportunities in Internet floral shops, have helped drive down the cost for flowers and created simpler floral arrangements, reducing the demand for designers. Floral experts who are able to create exciting and original designs will continue to be in high demand for specialty events such as weddings. Certified designers may have an edge for the best jobs. Overall, employment opportunities will be much better for florists who work at grocery stores (+5 percent through 2024) than those who are employed in florist shops (-11 percent through 2024.)
