Carolyn Rizzo

Head of Design

Carolyn Rizzo is a Philadelphia native who spent her summers on her father’s farm in Tennessee, where they grew their own flowers and vegetables. She has been a florist for over 20 years now, and has worked for several large scale event florists in the Philadelphia area. Carolyn has been managing and designing at garnish for the past 5 years and takes great pride in the work she creates, large or small.  She is an expert in all things flowers, plants, color and design. Her attention to detail, and the scope of her floral vocabulary is as comforting as it is impressive. Carolyn’s love for floral design is evident in her enthusiasm and dedication to each individual event/client.

Sarah King

Assistant

Sarah King’s floral design career started in 2013 as an intern at Sprout- a hip floral studio in Brooklyn, New York. She continued to learn through workshops with Putnam & Putnam (New York , NY), and later found a home at Zuzu’s Petals (Park Slope, Brooklyn) where she learned from master florists who have been in business for over 45 years. Eventually she made Philadelphia her new home, but in the meantime you can still find her singing in her jazz band, The Smoke Rings (www.thesmokerings.com) and leading parades as the majorette of Hungry March Band. Her unique experience as a performer at events gives her an uncommon understanding of how flowers and music can transform an event!

“Garnish was amazing to work with! I'm not very flower savvy, so I sent them over a few Pinterest pictures to show what I liked, and they absolutely NAILED it! My husband and I got married at Rustic Acres Farm which had plenty of its own natural charm, but Garnish enhanced that by flourishing the grounds with beautiful arrangements. They are so talented and kind, they truly took my vision and brought it to life. My bridal bouquet and bridesmaids clutches were gorgeous as well. I would highly recommend Garnish to anyone looking for a professional, brilliant, and caring florist!”

“Garnish created the flowers for my wedding at Rustic Acres Farm October 2016 and I was very happy with them. I liked that they didn't charge extra rental fees for the vases and candelabras we had on the tables like some of the other florists we considered do. Overall a great experience.”
