The Charlie’s Angels trio, Brooke Shields, and Oprah have her handmade
mosaic photo albums, she did invitations for Taye Diggs, designed the flowers for Talisa Soto and Benjamin Bratt, and she’s doing upcoming weddings for Molly Shannon and Elizabeth Banks. There’s a reason why chic, young Hollywood is turning to Joanne Gartin’s Love Luck and Angels to design their wedding, bridal or baby showers. Quite simply, everything she touches is both beautiful and hip. "There’s the way you’ve seen things done before and then there’s the way jo does it." Best known for her clean, minimal, modern meets Balinese look, Jo will add her touch to even the smallest detail. Using her favorite—bamboo and pressed orchids (Cymbidiums are her favorite), Jo often creates an entire mood with the simplest touch.

Years of traveling as a model, has given Jo’s designs an international flair. She’s used an imported bamboo runner as an aisle treatment; she loves handmade papers, and silk lanterns from Thailand. One of her favorite touches was a bright red, handmade maraca from Nicaragua, personalized with the bride and groom’s names.

A lot of organizers plug the client into the mold of their previous events. Jo designs each of her events in a way that captures the taste, style and personality of the individual client, while maintaining her own creative, non-traditional approach. "Just because it’s a baby shower, doesn’t mean it can’t be cool and sexy, with a hip design theme."
