preferred designer Program
Thanks to the overwhelming support of our nationwide customer base, Gracious Garlands continues to grow by at least 30% annually. Each year we receive dozens and dozens of requests for holiday decorating which we have to decline because we simply don't have the capacity.
What is also true is each year we meet highly talented creatives with a desire to learn the trade of holiday decorating.
So, we got to thinking... why not join forces and equip likeminded designers to take care of these potential clients - the Gracious Garlands way?
We're excited to expand our ability to bring exceptional holiday decorating services to homes and businessees nationwide through our Gracious Garlands Preferred Designer Program. This robust program and supportive network empowers creatives around the country to confidently build (or grow) their own holiday decorating business.
Are you a designer or florist who loves holiday decorating?
calling all creatives
our designers, defined
Gracious Garlands Preferred Designers are individuals with a design or floral background who we equip to incorporate Gracious Garlands greenery in holiday decorating + event design.
Our Preferred Designers are a group of skilled creatives who have a knack for design and a desire to build a business beautifying the spaces of their clients.
Are you ready to jump on this opportunity?
your earning potential
In 2021, the average price for our custom holiday installations was $3,000.
Our Preferred Designers can expect to profit 1/3 of an installation price.
Therefore, on an average installation of $3,000, you can expect to take home $1,000.
Based on 20 years of holiday decorating experience, we believe it is possible to successfully take on 10 installation clients in one week, giving you the opportunity to make a net profit of $10,000 in 5 days time.
What a fun, challenging and rewarding way to begin the holiday season and end your year!

the not-so fine print
When servicing a client referred by Gracious Garlands, Preferred Designers agree to exclusively use fresh wreaths and garlands from Gracious Garlands (if and when fresh greenery is part of the installation).
If a client is not referred to a Preferred Designer by Gracious Garlands and/or the client has not approached a Preferred Designer as a result of Gracious Garlands marketing, promotions, or referrals, a Preferred Designer is under no obligation to use Gracious Garlands fresh wreaths and garlands.
Should a Preferred Designer no longer wish to service clients referred to them by Gracious Garlands, a Preferred Designer agrees to notify Gracious Garlands so clients can be referred to another Preferred Designer in the network.
