The Prettiest: Fade to Pink at the Ferry Building

April 9, 2010
Posted by in Events

The Reason: A glorious celebration of union (otherwise known as a wedding)!

Special Because: Flowers were arranged to “fade to pink.”  We used white to deep pink in season ranunculus to paint a dreamy spectrum.

We loved: Metal heating ducts used as flower vases.  Our very own magical Sophie constructed this recyclable, and most certainly reusable design.  Flowers situated within duct pieces on tables encouraged poignant consideration of industrial meets organic that directly mirrored the past and present uses of the Ferry Building.  The effect was striking, poetic, and clearly one to remember!

Made Possible By: Stunning celebrations such as these are always the work of so many talented people.  For this one we would like to acknowledge stellar Event Planner Stacy McCain, scrumptious Caterer Paula LeDuc, and talented photographer Jeannie Choe for these gorgeous images.  Thanks everyone!  Congratulations Jill!

Star Struck

Okay so I’m not (usually!) much of a star gazer when it comes to celebrities. But when I found out that Michael Pollen would be one of 8 guests in Boulevard’s Wine Vault ~ and Lila B. flowers would be the centerpiece. I ogled.

Sophie, part of the Lila B. gang, created this vessel from an old wine box and then we poured in the locally grown ingredients…

Foraged Acorns & fragrant Quince from ‘Florists at Large’, our own ‘City Grown’ edible Rumex, red & yellow Rudbeckia, and Gallardia seed pods, and Half Moon Bay Dahlias and fragrant Chocolate Cosmos made this arrangement almost delicious!

Thanks to Michael Pollen ~ for all his inspiration ~ and influence on how we think at Lila B.
