Hiring a good designer involves more than just getting the most flowers for the least amount of money. Your event floral designer should be more of a style coach or fashion architect. You need to comfortable letting your designer tell you when ideas are not okay. For example, this ceramic vase by Joanna Kramer asks only for the most delicate of flourishes. You put one red rose into the neck and it will look like something a second grader made in art class for Valentine's Day.
