The WKU Floral Shop is a full service floral shop located on the beautiful campus of Western Kentucky University offering service to the campus and the Bowling Green area. We offer a full range of products and services, including wedding and funeral work. In addition, delivery and wire service is available. Our inventory includes fresh cut and permanent botanicals as well as a line of gift items suitable for both the campus and local community. Also available are green plants grown by students in greenhouse production courses.
Located within the Floral Shop is the Floral Design Training Center. The purpose of the Training Center is to create a training facility for students interested in careers in floral design, interior design, and hotel restaurant management as well as floral shop management. Courses using the facility are Introduction to Floral Design, Advanced Floral Design and Wedding Floral Design with the addition of a Floral Shop Management course being offered in the near future. Extended campus workshops will be conducted offering a certificate to florists that are interested in advancing their design skills. The workroom and classroom lab space is separate from the Floral Shop showroom and sales area. Viewable workroom areas allow the customers to see the expertise in creating a design and the talent that goes into a design. The lab space is used by students enrolled in floral design courses. These students have a set lab time to go to the shop to create a floral design. The student's designs are evaluated by the lab instructor and the finished product is featured as a special that is sold in the Floral Shop.
