Posted by in Books

With huge gratitude, a touch of fear, and a whole lot-o-glee, I’m announcing my forthcoming book: The Plant Recipe Book: 100 Arrangements for Any Home in Any Season. Due early April 2014, published by Artisan and photographed by Paige Green. This book is a collaboration of so many – and to so many I’m so thankful!

With an eye on today’s modern aesthetic and inspired by natural beauty, The Plant Recipe Book provides simple steps to show anyone how to create stunning living plant decor.
A follow-up to The Flower Recipe Book, it also showcases Paige Green’s beautiful photography and easy-to-follow “how to” recipe style. The Plant Recipe Book focuses on 40 plants and 100 recipes.
Each plant is used in two or three living bouquets, the first is basic while the second and third are more substantial, and employ more unusual plants, sophisticated designs, or hard-to-find ingredients, leading the reader from simple to more elaborate creations.

A Mossy Scene with Magical Characters

February 5, 2013

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.
