Seven Days at Lila B.

Sometimes I wonder, what did we do last week?

Here’s a little photo journal entry about how we all at Lila B. spent just one week in July of 2012.

In the {parking} Lot Garden:

Grooming, watering, Slug patrol {eek, we do it by hand!}, and yes our favorite task: cutting flowers & greens and plucking Succulents too for this week’s events.

Mimi helps select and cut for our wedding- and then fills our Honda Element with all sorts of fabulous stems!

In the Studio

With 2 sweet weddings on the books for the coming Saturday, we’re busily creating  bouquets, centerpieces, boutonnieres & more! All while neighbors swing by to purchase Succulent and Floral take homes – Baylor chats with a kind mother of a (former) bride who visits us at the ‘Flower Bar’ (our raised loading dock) to select some super hip Succulents for her,  just around the corner,  office at Mission Loc@le.


Planning & Proposals

We stay in and we step out of the studio to meet up with clients, brides, and event…

Brassy Bowl-o-Succulents

Found in a charming antique mall in So. California this almost 2′ wide bowl was uncovered and taken ‘home’ to Lila B. It was quickly deemed the perfect host for a urban mini landscape but where-0-where shall it reside?

Moments after this photo was snapped, it found the perfect temporary home. Set atop a huge dining table- the brassy bowl-0-Succulents, stones, Thistle, Air plants, and wood chunks was a fitting centerpiece for a unique wedding celebration dinner.

The party has ended but our arrangement lives on… this beauty will soon to be back in our studio. Now, we ask, who else will enjoy this grand piece next?

Hangin’ On!

August 9, 2012

These Staghorn Ferns are mounted a top re-purposed wood provided by our favorite wood shop just a few doors down. The outer two wood pieces were taken from a house re-model just around the corner from our studio. The other – and extra Walnut chunk from a table made by Pseudo Studio.

Since their mounting, they’ve departed the twenty one hundred block of Folsom street – and headed south. They all now hang out on the walls of a Veterinary clinic in San Jose- We’re happy they found yet another new home…
