Project Florist

Florists: they make pretty flower arrangements on a regular basis. Usually people who want these want a known quantity: an arrangement appropriate for a wedding, a funeral, a dance, a reception. But could these florists do more?

The show would present challenges to tax the artistic and creative abilities of the florists. And then requirements would drift away from the fridge full of flowers: an arrangement made of wild-found materials. Materials within 500 yards of this GPS location. Materials purchased at the supermarket.

Project Runway is an excellent use of the TV medium because the creative endeavors of clothes designers are meant to be seen. Flower arrangements theoretically could smell good too but are still mostly visual.

       I have to vote no. So far, on TV, we have competitive angling; competitive baking; competitive knitting; competitive DIY; competitive weddings; competitive woodworking; and competitive hairdressing.

       [+] I like it. I can't imagine watching it, but it'd be higher on the list than others.
FlyingToaster, May 27 2016

       [+]It has potential... You must have some very effeminate (not over the top) gay arrangers versus some attractive female arrangers. If you could find a big black bodybuilder gay guy who arranges flowers, you've got a hit.   

       You could include LOTS of ancillary information about flowers. Where they are grown, how they are shipped, how is the drought affecting the industry, Who did the flowers for the Royal weddings, History of Flower arranging... OMG... I'm loving your idea.

       [+]Tie in some info about the wedding or event. If it's a wedding, a bit of background information on the bride's family, who they are, etc. A little info about the groom. Maybe the bride's family doesn't like him.   

       If it's an event, what's going on, who are the principals, etc.   

       It's been fun just thinking about it. Do you have a better title?
r_kreher, May 29 2016

       Run with it, r_k!
bungston, May 29 2016

       Run Florist!   

       competitive medicine bottle filling? competitive auto repair?

       I love it, bungie. Love +

       Ian Tindale.... I have a perfect title for your competitive peeing contest.   

       I'm a 7. Urinate. You're welcome.

       How about "Projectile Florist", where a flower- arranger is fired from a large circus cannon, has to intercept a bunch of flowers in mid-air, and then create a tasteful bouquet before landing?

       Sigh. Television...   

       I'm certain that there are some good things that I'm missing out on, but the small sampling I see leads me to believe that I'll be just fine without it.

       Just keep track of those good things so you can watch them during the upcoming long days in the nursing home.   

       So far I have "Cheers" laid away, and most of "Simpsons".

       How about "Britain's Got Celebrity Florists - Get Me Out of Here"?
