Flower Math is the florist’s roadmap to profit clarity.
I teach you how to make more money & quit over-buying.
“I took your flower math course a year ago and it’s totally changed my business.”
-Kasey (review from Facebook)
Floral designers can feel confident in their pricing (and stop over-filling orders!).
You can provide value to your clients and turn a profit at the same time.
If you’ve been “going it alone”, I’ll show you the way to profitability…Step by step.
“In one wedding I felt more confident in my pricing & made my money back on the purchase of the class. This really has been a game changer for me!!
I cannot thank you enough for putting out this course…the tools that you have provided [are] allowing me to confidently build my business’ infrastructure so that I CAN make a career out of this (and not only be a hobby florist).” -Susan of Wild Blume
“Everything was straight forward,
I liked how you included [real] weddings that you had designed. For me, visuals are everything! Seeing photos, videos, and the formulas were so so helpful! Thank YOU for sharing this wonderful information for us designers who have been struggling with “Flower Math.” -Cheryl of Twigs-n-Twine
Here’s what Flower Math covers…
0.1 How you can order efficiently to avoid overbuying.

In fact, it’s easy*.
(payment plans are available!)
*PLUS you’ll get 4 Bonus Additions (just added March 2018!) including: profits and breakdowns on 2 MORE real weddings (for a total of 5 real weddings), a special note for Flower Farmers on recipe creation and a downloadable pdf with my “starting prices” on wedding flowers and how the prices have evolved over the past 16 years!
“Cheat sheets….all I have to say is I Love You!…is that weird?”
-Tracey of Tracey Reynolds Floral Design
“I was worried I would purchase the course only to find it was information I already knew…After all I trained in three different flowers shops at different levels and all had different ways of running their business. However, you offered a few things that I did NOT know and/or information I hadn’t previously learned. Such as: A) The design fee standard percentage…That changes today! B) The cheat sheet- where has that been all of my life?? Mind blowing that we never used something like that in my shop days. That would have come in handy on so may occasions (hired help, seasonal price hikes, newbies, etc.)”
-Floralpreneur survey response
Here’s what you get as soon as you sign up…
0.1 Easy to follow formulas to calculate markups and design fees. (This is the “stuff” all florists must know! Even if you’re familiar with markups already, florists have told me they appreciate the breakdown on these formulas.)
0.2 A step-by-step guide to apply the basic “flower math” formulas, (how to price “both ways”, i.e. determine the price of arrangement when you know the stem count and how to fill an order to value when you know the price, but haven’t created a recipe yet), which have been handed down from florist to apprentice throughout the years.
0.3 A true behind-the-scenes breakdown of 5 REAL weddings, each complete with a full list of recipes, COGS and profits of 70% on flowers & supplies.
0.4 Over a dozen floral recipes (14 recipes to be exact!) including 3 different bridal bouquets, 3 bridesmaids bouquets, 3 styles of centerpieces (including a 19′ floral table runner), an arbor, aisle flowers, large ceremony arrangements, flower girl baskets and more.
0.5 Itemized customer invoices. (Yes, a look at my real prices!)
0.6 Pricing cheat sheets to calculate design fees for you.
0.7 Over 45 minutes worth of video instruction with details on how to apply markups as well as how I create recipes and wholesale orders that are “tight and right”, to keep my cost of goods as low as possible.
0.8 E-mail support from Alison if and when you need it. I proudly stand behind this course!
0.9 Lifetime access! Check in for a Flower Math refresher any time…and if I add to or enhance the course you’ll have access to all future updates as well. As long as I’m running this course, you’ll have access*.
*New Bonus Additions: I just added 4 new bonuses to the course including a note for Flower Farms, plus a downloadable pdf with a breakdown of my “starting prices” over the past 16 years.
Real Florists Share Their Feedback:
She took 3 “other” online courses for florists…
“…Even after [3 other courses], it all seemed muddy. I told myself I’d give Flower Math a try and then no more courses.
For the first time in nearly two years, I feel empowered ordering flowers. Flower Math made all the other courses I’ve taken completely irrelevant. It’s honest, practical and totally transparent. I can’t thank you enough. It feels amazing to have an actual plan about how I’m going to execute this wedding I just ordered and knowing exactly how much I will be making.
With your examples, I sat down and wrote out actual recipes, which I’ve never done before (since learning from a few courses above that they’re not necessary).
The good news is that pricing & profit margins are not a mystery.
The goal is to make 70% profit on the cost of flowers & supplies….the rest of your COGS will come out of that 70% profit.
If you start today, you’ll be pricing with confidence and discover a newfound outlook on the business-side of your creative business.
For example, if you currently operate with a 50% profit on flowers & supplies, for every $30,000 you sell I’ll show you how to keep $6,000 MORE for yourself and your other business expenses.
Instead of a $15,000 profit on the cost of flowers & supplies, your profit would be $21,000. This course will easily pay for itself over and over again as you grow your business and increase your sales.
Do you calculate your profits on flowers and supplies? If not, why not start now? It’s easy.
Here’s how it’s done:
Remember: Your additional COGs (the cost of doing business!) will come out of that 70% profit on flowers & supplies.
What about the Price?
Flower Math is an investment in your small business. You can choose 1 payment and Save $100 OFF, or make 2 payments and Save $89 or a take advantage of a 12-payment plan at just $49 per month! I know it’s not always easy to invest in your business (and taking an online course may seem “risky”…), but I am committed to providing tremendous value to the florists who sign up for my “stuff”.
The florists who’ve completed Flower Math say that the value of the content far outweighs the cost. After signing up for Flower Math you’ll see the benefits of increased profit margins on every order for as long as you run your business.

“Your explanations are clear and precise for the creative, I’ve been in the industry a very long time and plan on continuing & you have given me a boost to return to the shop this year and not feel guilty charging what we’re worth.”
-Lyndal, The Flower Dispensary, Australia
“I have had a hard time getting over my own price hang ups. Seeing examples of how the numbers actually worked, in specific designs was invaluable.”
-Floralpreneur Survey Response
“…the videos were the exact pep talk that I needed. Through the video Alison was able to convey a camaraderie with her message that made me feel like I was sitting down to coffee with a mentor.”
-Flower Math Survey Response
“Loving Flower Math. I already knew how to mark up based on the “flower shop technique” but I felt like I was all over the place and not focused about how I was pricing my work. I love that I now have it all in one place I can refer to and utilize. Now I also feel like it is taking the guilt out of pricing flowers (I couldn’t charge THAT much for a hydrangea!). I can just tell myself, “According to the Flower Math that is what I need to charge!”
-Shannon of Flourish

Here’s what floral pros say about Flower Math…
Amy from Botanical Brouhaha said:
“I love that you clearly demonstrate that it is possible to have a profitable business working from home on a smaller scale…designers need to know that success and profitability can look a lot of different ways…this will be encouraging to a large number of designers. LOVE the real wedding examples. The designers are going to love this!”
And Blair of Sweet Blossoms says this:
“This class is perfect for anyone who is starting their own business, or for anyone who might need a refresher in the basics! Alison gives super-helpful tips and formulas on how to ensure that you are running your business with a really impressive profit margin. Users will appreciate the personal touch that Alison brings to each unit, as well as the real life examples that bring the lessons to life. This class is worth every penny and more!”
Floriography’s Christie McIntosh says:
“This course is like the missing subject in my initial floristry training course. Where my course skimmed over business details, Alison’s Flower Math bares all to give budding floral designers a completely transparent view of how to make money from their craft. If you haven’t had the chance to learn on the job from a ‘professional’, in a shop, or if you aren’t comfortable reaching out to a peer to ask the deep questions, this course is your answer. Alison spells it out, not only through concise videos, but also through a series of written lessons and cheat sheets. Nothing can be mistaken as she actually shares real weddings from start to finish – recipes, flower orders and invoices – removing the mystery from the game.
I’m Australian based and although this course is from the US, I feel it’s entirely relevant to our local market. If you’re worried about spending the money on this course, consider it the missing subject to your initial training, it’s a small price to pay for the huge benefit your business will receive.”
Some questions (or hesitations) you may have…
Q: “When does the course start?”
A: This is an online course which is instantly available to you as soon as you buy. Once you get it, Flower Math works on your schedule and is available online whenever you need it.
Q: “I’m so busy. I don’t have time for an online course.”
A: I hear ya. I’m busy, too. You can complete this course at your own pace…probably in a few hours. You can approach it in 30-minute increments or start it when you have 2-3 hours to focus on increasing profits.
Q: “This sounds great, but what’s the bottom line for me/my business?”
A: Florists have reported increased confidence and understanding around charging for their design time. I’ll show you how to keep more of the money your business generates. You’ll be paid more for your time by keeping more of the money you already make.
Q: “My business is established. I have my own pricing methods. Do I really need an online class?”
A: If you want to increase your profit on the cost of flowers and supplies to 70%, then yes! Experienced designers have had great things to say about Flower Math.
Q: “I don’t have money to invest in my business right now.”
A: I get it. I’m conservative when it comes to spending money in my business, too.
The #1 hesitation of designers so far has been the investment (both time and money!). An investment in your business will pay dividends. This is an unprecedented look at how to maximize your profit margin on weddings and events. You are worth it.
Oh, and Flower Math will be a business expense. (Remember that at tax time!)
You: “I hate mathematics.”
Me: Me, too. The only math I like is Flower Math. ‘Cause that’s how I make my living.
What it is: FLOWER MATH is an unprecedented look at how to maximize your profit margin on weddings, events and every order.
Why: Because you can run a profitable floral design business…even from home.
Where: The course is online. You simply log in to read each lesson, download cheat sheets & watch video tutorials. Right here on my site.
When: You can start now. Move at your own pace. Set aside a few hours to complete the whole course, or do one lesson at a time over the course of a week or two. The sooner you start, the sooner you’ll see results.
