By Todd McBride on February 3, 2017 in Billy Heroman's Flowers, Gifts, Interior Plantscapes, Flowers, Uncategorized. 0 CommentsFloral Design Day was instituted in 1995, in honor of Carl Rittner, founder of the School of Floral Design in Boston. Rittner is considered by many to be the "father of floral design" and was one of the very first to recognize the work done in this industry as a legitimate art form. His legacy and vision have influenced thousands of professionals through the years. On the day he is remembered, we'd like to introduce you to one of our floral designers, Robert, who has been with Billy Heroman's Flowers since the 1970's. Although he took breaks over the years, he always returned - and he is here to stay. Read More about Floral Design Day – Meet Robert
