Start small, host some parties such as they do with Pampered Chef, there you can sell some of your items to people you know. This will give you an idea of the appeal. Next, you can get some arrangements together and sell them via internet. You want to do some research to see what similar items are selling for.

Find a supplier that gives you a price that you can still mark up and make a profit. Come up with competitive pricing and find a venue of selling, whether it is online or in a shop you have to find a way to reach customers.

You will have to determine your "niche" in the market, the thing you will do that makes you different. You'll need a good material wholesaler, most likely out of the China or Indochina. You need to determine your market, overhead and how you will provide and advertise your product.

You need product, a website, and customers. Instead of a store to sell what is available at Walmart, come up with unique offerings and combination. Then offer school color corsages, the offer them to the PTA at cost. Make wedding and funeral arrangements and get referrals through churches.
