Reputation is important to floral designers. The best are known for their innovation and artistic prowess, like other artists. Yet their reputations do not quite develop into real fame. Their work is restricted by the media involved. Really, floral designers compose their art with, well, flowers. Also, their work is perishable. After it has served its intended purpose, it is discarded. Fame simply is not part of this work. Unless, as mentioned earlier, you’re lucky enough to work on a float for a nationally televised parade. If your mother was up that early, she would be so proud.
