Succulent Bowls for the SF Ballet
Julie and I were hard at work on two events last week: the Mayor’s Earth Day Breakfast at City Hall, and a big benefit dinner and fashion show for the San Francisco Ballet. We took some photos of the succulent bowls for the ballet all lined up in nice rows before we loaded them up for delivery.
We used the tulip-shaped heads of Leucadendron “Maui Sunset” as filler, and added a few tillandsias for pops of contrast. I love the way they look like little undersea worlds. They were so beautiful against the simple white linens at the event. Apparently Michael Kors was in attendance (they showed his collection at the benefit), and as a big Project Runway fan, I was pretty excited about this. He ate next to my flowers!!
Now on to Mother’s Day… if you haven’t ordered your mom’s bouquet yet, there’s still time! We’re taking orders for Sunday delivery until midnight tonight. Just scroll back to the top of the page to place your order. And do come in and see us this weekend; unfortunately our flower arranging workshop is sold out, but we’re also having a coffee and tea tasting in the gardens on Sunday — should be a fun way to spend the holiday!
