If you were to wander to the side of Stable Cafe, just past a shipping container topped with a garden grown by yours truly, you will find Saison.  Saison (French for season) is a reservations-only restaurant that opens its doors on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday

Saison Floral Centerpiece

 evenings to serve the locally sourced menu of Executive Chef Joshua Skenes with the discerning and cultivated wine pairings of Sommelier Mark Bright. The feel is secret supper club meets informed elegance.  The experience is one of both intimacy and invitation: the tables are small and candle-lit while the kitchen is open and guests can be a part of the culinary magic with wine in hand.

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.

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!

Ashes and Snow.

I was lucky enough to fall upon photos by Gregory Colbert when delivering flowers to Sausalito, California’s elegant Cavallo Point. See a peak behind these Lila B re-plantable succulent and flower arrangements.

Go to Cavallo Point and/or Ashes and Snow to be inspired by photos that capture a beautiful connection between humans and animals. I’ve still got chills from them; the images will stick with me for  a long sweet while.

If you’ve not been to the California Academy of Sciences, it is worth a visit. It is filled with wonder. See a Leafy Seadragon, a white Alligator, and a living roof. And if you attended Rachel’s wedding last weekend, Lila B’s – floral fish tanks.
