Have you ever heard of Carl Rittner?
Chances are you may have experienced his influence, even if you never heard of him. Mr. Rittner was the founder of Boston’s Rittner’s School of Floral Design, and he is commonly credited for the idea of flower arranging as art. Although civilizations have been arranging flowers for thousands of years – and for many different purposes – Rittner saw creating arrangements as artistry.
February 28 is National Floral Design Day, an opportunity for florists everywhere, as well as all people who love flowers, to celebrate the art of flowers. While a field of wildflowers is strikingly beautiful in nature, there is mastery in the ability to finesse blooms into a structured display. Central Square Florist’s expert designers excel in organizing color and variety to create a completely unique piece of art that is truly one of a kind.
You may not have often considered how flowers relate to each other in space, working together to construct a visual symphony. But when florists sit down to create a floral arrangement, they don’t just place a bunch of different flowers in a vase; they consider how all the blooms will work together. To celebrate National Floral Design Day, we would like to invite you to have the Central Square experts create a bouquet all for you. Choose your price range, tell us the style and color palette of your home or office, and let us make something beautiful.
February was a big month for flowers, but there is still a lot of year left to enjoy the beauty that a flower arrangement brings. Central Square Florist is the Cambridge area’s premiere shop for all your floral needs, all year long.
