Sarah von Pollaro
Sarah von Pollaro Urban Petals creates one of a kind floral designs for events, donates them to nonprofit organizations the following day, and inspires people to enjoy arranging flowers. Urban Petals designs floral arrangements for large-scale events including annual galas, fundraisers, and awards ceremonies, performance openings, corporate conferences, restaurant openings, as well as furnishes offices and fine dining establishments with weekly flower arrangements. Sarah von Pollaro is the founder of Urban Petals. She has been passionate about flowers since she began arranging them with her grandmother as a young girl. Years later, between semesters at Yale University, she apprenticed with two top designers in Manhattan who had been trained by the renowned French florist, Christian Tortu. Although a promising young floral designer, upon graduation Sarah chose to pursue a career in the nonprofit sector in affordable housing and youth development. Always finding joy in arranging and realizing she could combine her passion for flowers and helping others, she launched Urban Petals at the age of twenty-five. Sarah created the "Flower Party" and SVP Flowers to share her love of flowers and belief that anyone on any budget can create gorgeous, long lasting floral designs with the proper tools, instruction, and a little encouragement. In person and on the SVP Flowers website, Sarah provides tips and tricks of the trade while demonstrating floral design techniques in a fun and simple way. She has been likened to Julia Child as she demystifies the classical art of floral arranging and has filmed a special on the subject for PBS. She is also privileged to teach at the Smithsonian. Sarah von Pollaro & son Theo Sarah von Pollaro & son Theo Sarah loves giving flowers and inspiring others to do the same and strongly believes that when people create their own floral designs, they tend to smile more, which makes the world a better place. Sarah started the Brighten Lives initiative to share flowers with those who could not otherwise afford them. She and her team serve nonprofit organizations by donating arrangements from events, hosting therapeutic floral workshops, and providing centerpieces for fundraisers. When not arranging flowers or inspiring others to do the same, Sarah can be found playing with her son Theo who loves trucks as much as she loves flowers. Sarah is personally involved with The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, a camp started by Paul Newman for children and families coping with cancer, sickle cell anemia, and other serious illnesses.

Let the La Plata Garden Club show you the way at their annual Holiday Design Show featuring Sarah von Pollaro.
Sarah is the founder of Urban Petals Design and Flower Empowered, host of floral arranging specials on PBS and a Whole Foods Market Flower Chef!!

The featured presenter was Sarah von Pollaro, owner of Urban Petals, LLC, a high-end floral design studio in Columbia Heights.
Sarah is the "Flower Chef" for Whole Foods Market, and she often presents design workshops in Metropolitan Washington. Her popular PBS program, "Flower Empowered," will be shown on our local station WETA/Channel 26 and nationally this spring. Most of the 40 people attending the January workshop were members or former members of St. Columba's Flower Guild, including two who now live in Boston and Rehoboth Beach, respectively. We also welcomed participants from St. John's Episcopal Church, Norwood; Washington National Cathedral; Chevy Chase United Methodist Church; and National Presbyterian. The workshop was divided into two parts. In the first section, Sarah demonstrated how to create pedestal arrangements for our worship spaces. After a wonderful brunch served by Versatile Foods, she focused on hand-tied bouquets. Each participant was given a selection of flowers and greens, and Sarah and her two assistants helped us create our own unique arrangements to take home at the end of the workshop. As part of her mission to share flowers with those who can't otherwise afford them, Sarah rearranges floral pieces from large events, which she then hand delivers to shelters and nonprofit centers.
