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…

Hand-Dyed in the Headlands

Just north of San Francisco in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, you will find the Headlands Center for the Arts.  Why is this one of our favorite places?  The Headlands has both public programs and artist residencies that work to “build understanding and appreciation for the role of art in society.” As if that was not enough the Headlands is housed in nine historic, 1907-era military buildings that have been renovated through commissions to artists such as Ann Hamilton and David Ireland.  Truth be told, we are smitten and this is one of our favorite places to adorn with local botanicals.

Last weekend,  we filled blue, hand-dyed ball jars with giant peachy-orange ranuculas and anenomes from San Diego and sweet peas from our San Francisco lot garden and brought them up to the Headlands for a really special winter wedding.

“Hand-dyed,”you ask?  Yes indeed.  You can learn more about it here and while we admit that…

According to their website, the Wedding Chicks are here to share everything new, classic, funky, hip, and just plain fun for weddings.

After a long peruse of their fabulous site, I’ve discovered that they are on target with hip and fun! Check them out and see what they think is hot; you might just be inspired. And while you’re there…see more Lila B wedding flowers. We thank the chicks (and photographer Jesse Leake) for being included!
