As the Sun Sets: The Styling of a Deck

As the sun was setting- and with little time to spare before the camera started clicking- we busily worked to set the scene on this lovely San Francisco deck. Starting with all but 2 lounge chairs and a backdrop of an exquisite view, a top 3 flights of stairs of this lovely Potrero Hill home, we carried up our botanical & deck props and got to work.

Gorgeous tables available at San Francisco’s eclectic Living Green. Custom metal planters by Joe Chambers Art & filled by Lila B. with flowing grasses & poignant Succulents.

Just as we arranged the last faux concrete planter, Treve from, Treve Johnson Photography, began clicking and captured the work of Gast Architects & Podesta Construction over-time as the sun set over San Francisco. We waited as he worked his magic before…

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…

…And all the Sweetest Flowres…
