According to their website, the Wedding Chicks are here to share everything new, classic, funky, hip, and just plain fun for weddings.

After a long peruse of their fabulous site, I’ve discovered that they are on target with hip and fun! Check them out and see what they think is hot; you might just be inspired. And while you’re there…see more Lila B wedding flowers. We thank the chicks (and photographer Jesse Leake) for being included!

Cracking Smiles

I’ve read that if you’re in a funk ~ down in the dumps ~ feeling blue ~ or just need a pick me up ~ donate your time/ give back to someone else and you’ll feel a whole lot better.

Here comes Julie ~ new to Lila B ~ not only is she helping out with the creation of gardens and flowers, she is helping us do those things that we’d like to do a whole lot more of including: giving back.

On Monday we created 60+ floral arrangements for a corporate event. Post event, we took them back to the studio. On Tuesday, they still looked beautiful….

Today, spurred by Juie’s energy, we delivered those floral arrangements to the Bethany Center our neighbors in the Mission. Bethany is a nonprofit that provides housing and services to low-income people with a priority to seniors. 

Giving back is what she did. Not only to those who live and work at Bethany but to ourselves. What a fine dose of good vibes when seeing folks smile when handed flowers…

 We drove off in giggles…


Daily Candy and a Pot of Gold

Pots of Gold

Lila B. Design Garden Design

They say you shouldn’t sweat the small stuff.

But when your pad is the size of a postage stamp, that’s pretty much all you can do.

Baylor Chapman of Lila B. Design is a double threat for perspiring apartment-dwellers. She delivers gorgeous floral arrangements and can transform even the smallest space into a living, breathing work of art.

Chapman’s bouquets win raves for their sustainability (she sources buds from a roof garden in the Mission or a shared Dogpatch lot). And the former UC Berkeley garden design student works wonders with patios, flower boxes, balconies, and pots — filling them with succulents and perennials for an organic, natural result. She’ll even incorporate food, like an eggplant or tomato plant, for a touch of edible beauty.

Trust us: She’s kind of a big deal.
