Wreath Season

December 17, 2016

The last few weeks have seen our studio brimming with winter greens and flowing with gorgeous smells as we’ve been in full wreath making mode.

We had the opportunity to work with the fantastic people at Houzz to bring you an online wreath tutorial – packed with tips and tricks on how you can easily add a touch of something special this holiday! It’s such a fun way to get into the holiday spirit, so why not grab some friends and host a wreath making night of your own.

 

It wouldn’t be holiday season without the friendly fronds of bay, pine, boxwood and holly to great you at your front door, however the amazing folk over at SF Flower Market have also been fueling our inspiration with their colorful stalls stocked with the less traditional varieties of proteas, leucadendrons, rose cones, and kangaroo paw to name a few – but all of which have been making an appearance in our wreaths this year!

Wishing you a Magical Hallow’s Eve (and how to dress up your houseplants)

November 1, 2012
Posted by in Home Decor

With Halloween almost under our belt and several more holidays on their way, we in the Lila B. studio got to thinking…How do you ‘dress up’ your plants with out being…shall we say, Hokey?

With a few tweaks- we adorned this terrarium with just enough ‘Spook’ to make its spectators turn their heads twice. Next up: we’ll add Autumnal spirit to make one Thanksgiving ready…stay tuned.

Until then here are a two quick tips on how to get your houseplants into the holiday spirit. We condone: evoke the feeling without going overboard with cuteness.

1) Add plants that evoke the season- here we’ve used Kalanchoe ‘Oak Leaf’- with its silvery undulating leaves we thought it had a ghostly appeal. Perhaps it could double next as a snow covered tree?

2) In our book, a tiny bit of store bought silly fun is just fine- especially if it makes you or your friends smile…real BIG. This tiny web & spider came straight from the five & dime as did our Owl friend…Our concept: make those sweet touches accessories (yes just accessories) to the scene. Let your fabulous Botanicals shine…
