About Us


Celebrations Design Group is a team of dedicated and passionate professionals under the leadership of owner, Tom Covello. For four consecutive years (2009, 2010, 2011, 2012), CDG accepted an invitation to participate in the Philadelphia International Flower Show. As the primary fundraiser for the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, Celebrations was honored to be included in such a prestigious endeavor and contribute to such a worthwhile enterprise. In 2010 our exhibit was awarded the distinction from SAF (Society of American Florists) for the Most Creative Presentation of Cut Flowers. In 2011 PHS awarded our exhibit  “Best Interpretation of a Theme.” Our 2012 Exhibit was awarded with the Garden Federation of Pennsylvania’s award for creativity in an exhibit under 1,000 square feet, PHS Award of Distinction in the competitive class ~ Florist Invitational, and the PHS Award of Merit for creative collaboration of Horticulture with Pop Culture.

With over 30 years of floral industry experience, Tom’s commitment to clients and the industry sets him apart from other professionals. Tom’s enthusiasm for the floral industry began at a young age as he demonstrated his entrepreneurial skills in a retail flower shop, Covello’s Creations, which he owned and operated for eight years. Continuing education, knowledge and expertise in current trends, and a constant desire to surpass himself time and again places Tom high above other designers. Tom has attended “The Special Event,” an industry trade show and educational showcase. At the “World Floral Expo,” Tom developed  relationships with farms in Ecuador & Columbia for premium flowers from the world’s finest growers. Tom’s accomplishments in the industry include vast corporate and hotel décor, extensive experience in wedding and party decorating, instruction in floral design, and board membership in various industry related associations. He displayed his true “red, white, and blue” during the 2000 Republican National Convention, designing over 500 table settings, stage, and buffet arrangements for eight different events. Tom has been a past contributing member of the design team for the Miss America Pageant. Through contracts with event planners and venues, Tom has designed flowers for Presidents and celebrities alike. Celebrations Design Group has been featured on the covers of VIP Weddings and Mid-Atlantic Events magazines. Tom has also been published in My Wedding magazine, the Bridal supplement in the Daily Local News, spotlighted in a feature article in Delaware Today magazine, and featured twice in The Knot magazine’s ‘Real Wedding’ section. Tom’s zeal and passion for floral design is evident in every bud, stem, and final flourish contained in his work. His second passion, stage performance, has further enhanced his understanding of the importance capturing the full essence and meaning of every special event.
