Carnivores in Glass

November 9, 2012

Our fly eating, gnat munching carnivorous terrarium has lived a long healthy life. The above photo was taken early last spring. The two below images are from the other day. All we needed to do from then to now: provide sunshine & distilled water. And yes, we gave it a good pruning too…

Wishing you a Magical Hallow’s Eve (and how to dress up your houseplants)

With Halloween almost under our belt and several more holidays on their way, we in the Lila B. studio got to thinking…How do you ‘dress up’ your plants with out being…shall we say, Hokey?

With a few tweaks- we adorned this terrarium with just enough ‘Spook’ to make its spectators turn their heads twice. Next up: we’ll add Autumnal spirit to make one Thanksgiving ready…stay tuned.

Until then here are a two quick tips on how to get your houseplants into the holiday spirit. We condone: evoke the feeling without going overboard with cuteness.

1) Add plants that evoke the season- here we’ve used Kalanchoe ‘Oak Leaf’- with its silvery undulating leaves we thought it had a ghostly appeal. Perhaps it could double next as a snow covered tree?

2) In our book, a tiny bit of store bought silly fun is just fine- especially if it makes you or your friends smile…real BIG. This tiny web & spider came straight from the five & dime as did our Owl friend…Our concept: make those sweet touches accessories (yes just accessories) to the scene. Let your fabulous Botanicals shine…
