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 expressions 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 her milestones include commissioned floral arrangements for Anthropologie & Co for their 2019 Fashion Show in Bethesda, Maryland. Another, was her award from the Big Pitch competition in Annapolis, MD. After months of preparing, Violeta's was pitched infront of an audience and judges.
