Cote Designs is owned and operated by lead floral designer and creative genius Karin Jeffcoat.

Karin has spent 20 years refining her craft creating luxury events and serving as Augusta National's floral director, but you will always find her with a little dirt under her nails, a warm smile, and breathtaking florals spilling out of her suburban.

You have not seen floral mastery until you have seen 300 feet of garland suspended over lush tables of live beauty and delicate blooms, curated to perfection, and garnished with hand drawn menu cards soaked in warm candlelight in the quiet moment before guests spill through the doors to dance the night away. 

Karin and her team of experts leave no seam un-pressed, no aesthetic unattended, and no leaf out of place, and if you have met the team, it becomes immediately clear that they are approach each event as if it were for a member of their own families, with vigor, care, energy and precision. 

Karin possesses the magic to know exactly what her clients want, even when they're not even sure themselves. Leaving a wake of speechlessly grateful customers, she continues to innovate and push the boundaries of the industry itself. 

Step out of reality into the Cote Designs studio and instantly you will know that the keeper of such space is trustworthy of your wildest dreams of sweet-smelling petals and breath-catching festivity.
