Poppyseed Events is here to provide thoughtful, visually beautiful design elements for any celebration. From developing a theme for the event, to creating elegant or whimsical decorations, centerpieces, dessert tables and sweets, I can do it all… or just one piece. Big budget or small, I’ll ensure that every last detail is executed smoothly, so that you can sit back, relax, and enjoy the day.


There’s nothing like the delightful surprise of walking into a festively decorated space, be it indoors or out. Poppyseed Events’ creative and unique decorations will tastefully set the stage and visually welcome your guests with open arms.

Dessert Tables

When it comes to entertaining, I believe that an enticing array of sweets can provide the culinary exclamation point for your event. Poppyseed Events can stylize a stunning, bountiful and irresistible dessert table for your next celebration.

Custom Cookies

Custom designed, hand decorated cookies from Poppyseed Events are delicious, traditional rolled sugar cookies, but that is the only thing traditional about them. Each cookie is artfully hand-piped in fabulous hues of royal icing and the sky’s the limit in terms of shapes, colors and sizes.


At Poppyseed, I am inspired by the belief that life is to be celebrated! Holidays, birthdays, a gathering of friends - these are life's opportunities to cherish and enjoy. My wish is to make what is special to you, special to your loved ones and guests.

" Creative, Beautiful, and Delicious! The dessert table Carolyn created for our holiday party was not only delectable but amazing to look at. I have worked with Carolyn on several projects and she listens to my needs, is enthusiastic, full of ideas, and professional. Carolyn’s attention to detail, from planning to set up, resulted in a truly enjoyable experience and a work of art that was the talk of the party. "
