Every Sunday for years, Carolyn, a true romantic, rushed to read The New York Times Weddings and Celebrations section to draw inspiration for the perfect event. Wedding flowers always captured her creativity and informed her artistry.

After studying art, literature and politics at the University of Vermont and traveling the world from Dubai and Costa Rica to Fiji and Switzerland, Carolyn settled in the Roaring Fork Valley in 2004. Making her home here, she found herself dangling from rafters hanging holiday greenery in the St. Regis Hotel and dotting snowdrifts with rose petals for weddings. She loved it. She realized her passion and artistry could come to life through Carolyn’s Flowers.

For ten years, Carolyn and her team have worked closely with clients to create original floral and decor designs for the most intimate occasions and full-scale celebrations – from a French-themed dinner party at a private home in Aspen to a 400-guest modern, tented wedding at T Lazy 7.

Carolyn and her team have artistic vision and pitch-perfect execution to exceed your expectations for every Colorado wedding, corporate event and occasion. Once you see the work of Carolyn’s Flowers’, you’ll agree with them that flowers and decor truly are the most distinguishing element of any special event.

Carolyn lives with her family above Basalt in Missouri Heights. Flowers, weddings and events are a major focus for the whole family, day to day. Once, her 3-week-old baby had to get to “work” for a last-minute Christmas decor project! The design studio is based out of Basalt, with delivery to all the Roaring Fork Valley and Colorado.
