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 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…

Hello Chattanooga and beyond! I can not believe it’s the end of the year! We are busy with wreath making, dahlia digging, tulip planting, seeding trays, participating in holiday markets, and much more. We are so thankful for everyone’s support this year. I have compiled a gift guide of beautiful items available in our shop. Our shop is full of flowers, gifts from local makers and gift items from other small businesses all across the world. We truly believe in shopping small and we are…

Spooky Season

Undoubtedly, October is one of my favorite times of the year in Chattanooga. I adore Halloween. It also starts cooling off, the leaves start changing colors, and the dahlias explode to life! It’s been such a treat to be in our new shop and we knew we wanted to do a big floral piece just for this special time. We created a fun event for it at the shop and invited anyone who wanted to participate. We drank wine, snacked, and built a spooky floral…

Wildflower & Lavender Wedding in Chattanooga

We had the privilege of working with some outstanding vendors a couple of months ago on this beautiful styled shoot at Howe Farms We wanted the florals to come off as a bit wildflower and garden designed. We incorporated lavender, cosmos, lisianthus, dara, dahlias, strawflower, and more. We loved the soft and romantic look this created. If you look below, you can see some of the reception details. We have a beautiful floral chandelier that we use for wedding styling (and is available to rent)…
