Professional Floral Designer
An avid supporter of FFA, Randy’s passion for the floral industry is deeply rooted in education, which he believes is the key to the survival of the industry. Not only does he serve as a judge for State and National level CDEs, but he also puts on workshops and works with FFA students across the state. Randy is a true artist with flowers but his greatest asset is his ability to teach others his techniques and share his enthusiasm with students and advisors alike.
With over a decade of experience in the floral industry, Randy is the fourth generation owner and lead designer at Delorice’s Florist in Douglas, Georgia and is also active in the advancement of the floral industry. Randy educates his peers at various design shows and currently serves as a member of the Board of Directors for the Southern Chapter of AIFD.
Brilliant in both business and design, Randy has received multiple awards throughout his career. In 2012, the Georgia State Florists’ Association presented him with the 2012 Retailer of the Year award. In 2010, he became a member of the Professional Floral Communicators International (PFCI), after being inducted to the American Institute of Floral Designers (AIFD) in 2009. He has also received the 2009 Dick Timmons Service Award and the 2006 Designer of the Year award from the Georgia State Florists’ Association.
National FFA includes a floral arrangement grading rubric and itemized cost worksheet as part of the Floriculture CDE Handbook. You can use them to increase your knowledge of mechanics, but they are also a handy way to evaluate students in class for a grade.
