Meet Sara Gray-Foreman
The idea for Violeta’s began in an antique wheelbarrow. Sara had just moved to Chicago and found a passion for creating her own beautiful experiences in time, using florals and plants as her mediums. The wheelbarrow was the first vessel she ever created in. That small garden became her passion. She went on to school in Louisiana to study fine arts, and later planned and designed her own wedding. It was featured on the Wedding Guide of New Orleans. After, she landed in Maryland to gain a background in the wedding & floral industry.
Sara’s floral design experience comes straight from the source, having worked under some of the most well-known florists in the Baltimore and Washington, D.C., areas. She learned both traditional and artisan techniques. One of our milestones include commissioned floral arrangements for Anthropologie & Co for their 2019 Fashion Show in Bethesda, Maryland.
We love to incorporate foraged and natural elements whenever wecan. After all, beauty can oftentimes come from the ashes.
We are so proud of our little shop. It's the start of a long dream of mine to have a space that would invite people to feel inspired. From the moment you walk in, you are immersed in a space full of creativity, life, and beauty. We love combining botantical & floral elements into all of our designs.
