Today is Floral Design Day

February 28 is Floral Design Day Graphic
On this day in 1914, floral design pioneer Carl Rittner was born in Boston, Massachusetts.

Carl attended Boston University before founding Rittner’s School of Floral Design in the heart of Boston in 1947. His birthday was declared a day to honor floral design by Massachusetts Governor William Weld in 1995. One might assume February 14, Valentine’s Day, would be a better day to honor floral design, but if you know any florists, you’ll know they are too tired to celebrate on the 14th and are probably just now emerging from their pre-V-day exhaustion. If you see a florist, buy them a drink today!

To honor the beauty of floral design and those who do it well, we have selected three books with sapphic florists.

Curious what tomorrow’s special day will be?

Make sure to check back each day for your daily calendar trivia, along with more great book recommendations! Any day spent reading sapphic books is a day to be celebrated!

Do you enjoy all the features I Heart SapphFic brings you each week? Elevating sapphic literature is our passion, but it takes a lot of resources to keep this site running. Please consider supporting our efforts via Buy Us A Coffee!
