Celebrate the joys of your life with Joie de Vivre.

Joie de Vivre brings freelance floral design to your Northshore or New Orleans event. We meet, discuss your vision and collaborate to make your floral idea a reality. Having just moved home to Louisiana, Covington is now the place we call home. Prior to our move, we've celebrated many weddings and events at the Salish Lodge, Snoqualmie Ridge Golf Course and other wonderful venues in the Seattle area.

No storefront means no overhead for me and better prices for you. It also means that flowers are purchased for you and only you, allowing you to benefit from the freshest possible product. Attention and creativity is poured into making your event a memorable one, not just some pretty flowers in a vase.


While Joie de Vivre is my business and design is my passion, it all starts with the flower. Hope you enjoy my many ramblings.

Resilience

My pretty pink peonies finally popped and were soon after pounded by a deluge of rain.  Needless to say, the beautiful and delicate blossoms looked as though they had seen better days.
Yet after that same rainstorm this amazing tiger lily managed to survive with little visible stress.   This beauty captured my attention while walking the Iron Horse Trail. While most people enjoy the amazing mountain views and rock climbing the trail offers, my eyes are always glued to the foliage, searching for beautiful new things sprouting on the scene.  I’ve only seen lilies in my garden, in flower shops, and in books, but never growing in the wild.  I couldn’t believe I saw a wild lily!  The icing on the cake was that it was fragrant—what a surprise!
