Meet head Event Decorative Artist and Founder of Schweiger Designs, Carolyn Schweiger. Carolyn has over a decade of experience traveling professionally as a designer, artist, collector, antiquer, creator of events, corporate planner, floral designer, stylist, interior decorator, gardener, you name it – all of it combining her experience into her expertise to help you or your company create the artistic vision you deserve.
Carolyn, grew up “designing” shoes from her cereal box, planting her own secret garden, cutting flowers to make bouquets with her childhood friends. She remembers as a child patiently waiting, wide-eyed, for her parents to return from lavish events with balloons, favors, bags and little ornate boxes -designing events is in her innate being!
She holds a double major in Art and the History of Art and Architecture from the University of Pittsburgh. She began her career in Pittsburgh working for the Mellon family’s foundation designing events and fundraisers to publicize their Hospital in Haiti. There she learned to plan successful parties and meetings, and fundraising and educating others about life in Haiti. Since starting her own event designing firm, Schweiger Designs, in 2005 in Pittsburgh, she has planned events from Miami, to San Francisco, New York and San Antonio.
Her approach is creative – she understands the value of quality, the gift of service and…she brings to each event a successful outcome. A good listener with an eye for design, Carolyn can easily befriend her clients and understand their event visions.
