The things I like best about this arrangement are – the plant and the vase mimic each other, it is super easy to make, it lasts a long long time, and it uses a non traditional vessel.

This recipe calls for 3 things: Aloe aristata, Lace Lichen, and a votive.

Let’s gather the items! Once that’s done, it takes only minutes to assemble.

The Vase:
Here’s a similar votive from CB2 or another one from Bliss.

Dining by Design

Each year the San Francisco’s Design Center transforms from a showroom showcase into a host for a plethora of micro-dining rooms. Each with its own unique style and flair. What fun eh?! And all for a good cause too!

Better yet, last year, we were honored to join some of their creative forces.

Offering up our grape-wood airplan laden table top and vertical gardens and our oh so charming teardrop dioramas- we helped complete the dining scene with the Karen Villanueva and Paul O’Rourke’s installation.


“Creating a connection through design.” – San Francisco based design firms: Villanueva Design and Paul O’Rourke Design

Their dining room reflected the essence of our city’s contemporary urban-ism with a tossed in bit of organic – to make it oh so San Francisco. Nature juxtaposed with man-made  created a warm and welcoming room.
