Shutters of Succulents

February 20, 2012

Vertical gardens are all the rage! How about this for a twist? Salvaged Succulent Shutters. Yes indeed. We took salvaged solid wood shutters and gave them a second life.

Handcrafted boxes built to last, colorfully painted to adorn your wall, and finally filled with soil to host easy care Succulents. These boxes rock- all on their own or in a group. Give it a squirt of water every few days and they are ready to roll…

Blossoms, Wine, and Laughter: All in an Evening of Floral Arranging Fun

Last night was a wonderful night at Stable Cafe ~ Lila B’s lead designers Anna Hoffmann and Elizabeth Artis provided fun and informative instruction on floral design.  They took over the baristas counter with tools and offered great inspiration from their years of floral arrangement wizardry.

Buckets of lovely local blooms filled the cafe ~ as did delicious nibbles + drinks. Everyone took home two beautiful arrangements that they made and an extra handful of lovely flowers with a third vase so they could show off their new talents at home ~

It is Springtime and flower arrangement is for everyone!

The bride started off the creative process by sharing her collection of vintage glassware and ball jars to use as vases.  Some were dyed and others were classically clear.  We added a bright combination of dahlias, daisies, billy bobs, mint, sage, and berries.

Wooden farm tables featured large arrangements surrounded by a constellation of smaller, intimate miniature landscapes.  We filled a large glass terrarium from our friends at Roost with knofia, ferns, knofia, and poppy pods.  Beneath cloche bell jars were magical combinations of locally gathered botanicals.

This day was definitely one to…
