I love the connection between love and flowers in Aila El Edroos’ poem, ‘If Love is a Flower.‘ I hope it inspires you, too.
If Love Is Flower
love is endless
like flowers that keep on blossoming day and night
love is beautiful
like flowers with different different colors
love is growing
like flowers abundant in the garden
love is to give away
like flowers from my hand to yours
if love is flower
how many gardens grow your flowers?
how many flowers grow in your garden?
what are the colors?
what stories are they telling?
if love is flower

In the early days of last spring photographer Caren Alpert and art director Pamela Nudel visited us at Lila B. with an idea- and a wondrous one at that! We put our heads together and dreamed up a Hobbit-like scene with the most magical of characters. We met up again at Caren’s photo studio and this is how our day unfolded…
With a gathering of moss, logs, mushrooms, carnivorous plants, and lovely spring blooms- we went to work to set the woodland scene.
Caren captured the precious details and tiny critters,
while Pam and Baylor planned our visual story,
and Sophie quietly clicked, photographing us and the overall mossy scene.

Each year the San Francisco’s Design Center transforms from a showroom showcase into a host for a plethora of micro-dining rooms. Each with its own unique style and flair. What fun eh?! And all for a good cause too!
Better yet, last year, we were honored to join some of their creative forces.
Offering up our grape-wood airplan laden table top and vertical gardens and our oh so charming teardrop dioramas- we helped complete the dining scene with the Karen Villanueva and Paul O’Rourke’s installation.
“Creating a connection through design.” – San Francisco based design firms: Villanueva Design and Paul O’Rourke Design
Their dining room reflected the essence of our city’s contemporary urban-ism with a tossed in bit of organic – to make it oh so San Francisco. Nature juxtaposed with man-made created a warm and welcoming room.
