Okay so I’m not (usually!) much of a star gazer when it comes to celebrities. But when I found out that Michael Pollen would be one of 8 guests in Boulevard’s Wine Vault ~ and Lila B. flowers would be the centerpiece. I ogled.

Sophie, part of the Lila B. gang, created this vessel from an old wine box and then we poured in the locally grown ingredients…

Foraged Acorns & fragrant Quince from ‘Florists at Large’, our own ‘City Grown’ edible Rumex, red & yellow Rudbeckia, and Gallardia seed pods, and Half Moon Bay Dahlias and fragrant Chocolate Cosmos made this arrangement almost delicious!

Thanks to Michael Pollen ~ for all his inspiration ~ and influence on how we think at Lila B.

Here’s a snapshot of last week in the Lila B. studio…
We were prepping fun & bright flowers for an orchard wedding at Dawn Ranch in Guerneville, Ca.

We can’t wait to see the ‘action’ wedding photos…but for now…here are a few from our studio by Sophie de Lignerolles

For the past few months, we’ve been relishing in the beauty of the Dahlia.

Pink and Orange

Grown in a beautiful variety of shapes, sizes, forms, and colors…they bring
beauty to any home or garden…We like to combine them with fun fruits
(berries, pears and more!) along with green foliage – and you’ve got a winner.


Want them to last longer in your vase? Remove the leaves below the water line,
cut them often, keep them out of the sun, and change out the water every couple of days..


Sounds like a lot of work, it’ll be worth it. Dahlias will bring on a smile, guaranteed.
Go see them planted in Golden Gate Park – you may just be amazed at the diversity of them!
HUGE to small….fluffy to compact….bright to pale…
