Our Involvement w/ Ali Waller’s Work

We first met Ali Waller in the spring of 2021. I was familiar with her work at the time, but it wasn’t until she began visiting our shop for flowers for her casts that I was able to engage in a more meaningful way.  After a few weeks providing fresh and dried stems for her shows and casts, she invited me into her space to put up a floral installation for a show called Mommy. I was hooked. It was born of the same subject…

Workshop Magic + Upcoming Dates for the Holiday Season

This August, I discovered there’s nothing quite like a workshop when it comes to spending time with our lovely customers and flower friends. Throughout the month, I had the pleasure of assisting in the planning process, creating promo, and then attending my first two workshops as Joli Jardin’s Social Media and PR Director (Ashley here!). What a wonderful experience this was. Aside from keeping an eye out for noteworthy details and snapping away on my camera, I was incredibly fascinated with the energy that filled…

Our Floral Installations in Chattanooga, TN

With September quickly approaching us all, there’s an autumn feeling here at Joli Jardin and a desire to switch out our floral install hanging on the storefront. (Looking at you dark, moody Halloween install adorned with skeletons and dahlias!) Our silk flower installations consistently receive an abundance of kind comments and admiration, which is deeply appreciated, as it is our desire to provide an inviting storefront to visitors who come from near or afar. Did you know we design installs for local businesses here in…

Fashion Month from New York to Chattanooga

Ashley here, Joli Jardin’s Social Media and PR Director (pictured above wearing the burgundy dress!) One of my most special moments working in this new role so far was experiencing Chattanooga’s fashion month. Back in June, I introduced myself in an Instagram post where I shared a little about my switch from the New York City fashion industry into a job field that aligned more with my heart’s values and desires. Throughout this blog article, you will find beautiful photos from two fashion events we…

Summer Work on the Farm

Summer time on the farm is a mixed bag. On one hand, it’s magical. Baby animals are growing, flowers are putting on a beautiful show, and everything looks lush and green. On the other hand, work days begin at 6 or 7AM because the heat by 11AM is almost unbearable. Since mid-June, we have been hit with heat advisory after heat advisory. It makes work tough! We want to invite you into the not so pretty behind the scenes moments on the farm because it…

Summer Blooms on the Farm

Summer is such an incomparable time on the farm. Morning harvests are rich, colors appear in vibrant hues, and summer rain showers pop in and out as a treat for our flowers. Our shop is overflowing with buckets showing what a little bit of summer and a whole lot of hard work brings. While our customers and shop visitors see the harvest, it isn’t always magical behind the scenes. With longer summer days comes more challenging work. Sometimes we are unable to expend our energy…

Inside The Joli Jardin Gift Shop

Our Market St. shop has become a labor of love that we are immensely proud of. We had visions of a European market, and it has been nothing short of pure joy to intentionally create a space that embodies this style of shopping. European flower shops provide an opportunity to create your own bouquet with a wide range of flowers priced per stem. A wrapped bouquet looks simply divine, appearing as though each one was carefully crafted with someone special in mind. French boutiques provide a…
