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.

Louisiana Blooms

We’re finally settling in to our new life in Louisiana.  Of course we miss parts of our former life in North Bend.  We lived in a magical place—the river, the mountains, the snow, the wildflowers—thinking of it now is like a dream.  Of course I miss it at times, but then I think of all that wonderful vitamin d I get just about every day in this tropical paradise just a short drive from New Orleans.

Then, I look at the cool flowers and foliage can grow here.  Oh my goodness.  This girl could only dream of growing these successfully in the shadow of a mountain in the Pacific Northwest.  Here are a couple of my favorites.

Gloriosa lily--my favorite!
