Supporting Small Farms
Keeping it Local!
As we all do our part to adjust our lives during & after COVID19, our sights turned to our deeply impacted California flower farms who were forced to begin dumping beautiful spring flower because they were unable to get them to consumers.
The flower industry as a whole has been turned upside down. Living in California offers us a wealth of local farms who grow the most beautiful flowers in the world! We look to our beloved California growers as well as other small farms around the country to give us the most beautiful blooms!
Embracing each season
“Adopt the pace of nature, her secret is patience” – Ralph Waldo Emerson.
The best part of supporting small flower farms is that we get the very best of each season! Spring brings us ranunculus and sweet pea, Summer brings us field flowers for days, Autumn dahlias as big as your hand — These are the pride and joy of these farmers! Let’s celebrate them!
Florals are the best way to celebrate the autumn harvest, and there are so many treasures at our fingertips to incorporate the sentiment of this beautiful season. But most of all, let’s get your Thanksgiving centerpiece arranged for your table set. Don’t feel you have to succumb to the cliché orange and brown tones – allow us to help elevate the traditional look by bringing in fruits and gourds in a non-traditional way and weave them in with your flower arrangements centerpiece blossoms! Plums, kale, artichokes, pears, persimmon and so much more.
Regardless of whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukah or anything in between, the winter holiday themes carry through and celebrate love, family, friends, gatherings and creating memories. A seasonal tabletop brings in all the elements of nature from birch branches, to white pumpkins, to fur throws, warm candle light and seasonal blooms. We are happy to assist you with all of your Christmas Flowers, Hanukkah flowers, or tabletop wishes!
Toby at Lilla Bello Studio always makes me look good! I always get complements on what I send and then they become Lilla Bello clients as well! What she puts together is always stunning and just perfect! I have both sent and received from Lilla Bello and I am thankful to be on either side of the deal. Their online shop is also a total go-to for gifts! especially for babies. yay!michel w. 7/31/2009
Our wedding photos are beyond gorgeous thanks to Toby's gorgeous designs and florals!!!!!SS N. 6/14/2011
Lilla Bello designed our entire wedding decor and our wedding turned out to be nothing short of breathtaking. Our centerpieces and reception hall decor were lush, bright, smelled sooooo good, and were of course, gorgeous.
My bouquet was my absolute favorite. OMG It was beyond stunning and looks amazing in all the photos. It was what I was most picky about besides my hair and Toby knew exactly what to design when I just gave her a few hints of what I wanted.
Toby is a floral/design/wedding PRO and Lilla Bello is the best in the industry!!!!!
Toby did an AMAZING job on my son's wedding. My favorite moment of the night (aside from the Mother-Son dance) was the instant I saw the room all set-up with the gorgeous floral arrangements. It is etched in my mind forever. She really caught our vision and brought it to life. Toby is very professional and creative. Lilla Bello is all you could want for your wedding or special event.Cindi K. 10/29/2018
Lilla Bello provides the most exquisite flowers in LA! Toby is a dream to work with and time after time delivers. I am an event professional that has worked with Toby and the Lilla Bello team for years, and can vouch that they are top-notch. Look no further, you will definitely be thrilled!Sara P. 10/29/2018
I've ordered flower arrangements twice from Lilla Bello for my company, and have been blown away by the outstanding service and breathtaking arrangements. I truly mean breathtaking. Last week we gifted a jewel-toned flower arrangement to our head creative for her birthday. She had tears streaming down her face when I gave it to her!Margie R. 8/01/2016
When you order from their website for delivery, you can choose from a few price points (the lowest, $75, was huge so I can't even imagine the beauty of the more expensive ones), then you choose the color scheme (they are all inspiring), and then the vase style (there's a florists choice option). You can also make specific requests for flowers and write notes to the florist.
For my first order, I went with the delivery option. The delivery was quick and went smoothly. The second order was a pick up, and I am so lucky that it was! The shop is a bit confusing to find in the Bergamot Station area, but they walked me through it (and there's a big map when you drive in to the parking area). Their shop is absolutely gorgeous! It's like what a fairy's dreams look like. I can't wait to go back for more orders!
I've been a fan of Lilla Bello since stumbling upon the beautiful shop in Bergamot Station a few years ago and following them on Instagram. I finally got to experience Toby's artistic grace and Tasha's friendly efficiency and organization through the process of planning my wedding flowers and decor over the past few months.Taya W. 6/13/2017
Because it matters when planning events close to the heart, let me say that Toby is a wonderful human being in addition to being a very patient and intuitive planner. She has impeccable taste and was the sole reason my late afternoon, neutral-and-green toned beach ceremony looked as perfect as my jewel-toned evening, secret-garden, bohemian-chic reception on a Hollywood rooftop.
All of the personal flowers, bouquets and boutonnières were simply bulletproof in design, color, and construction. They withstood hours at the beach and were still looking fresh several days later. The table arrangements were more beautiful than what I could have dreamed up on my own, and all within a very reasonable budget. I kept as many of them as I could after the big day, and was able to keep them in our home for nearly a week where they perfumed everything and helped us decompress after the wedding.
If you're at all on the fence, don't even think twice about going with Lilla Bello for any floral needs, large or small. I look forward to more beautiful arrangements for every occasion and no occasion at all. And if you can visit the shop, you may walk out with something unexpected to treasure, whether it's a little sculpture, a new vase, or a tiny succulent to grow.
Working with Toby and the team at Lilla Bello Studio is both painless and incredibly fun. Toby is the perfect person to brainstorm with who will then get back to you with multiple ideas at multiple price points based on a combination of her expertise and the information you give her. And her team, whether they are just delivering something for you or actually creating centerpieces and decor on site, is always prepared and wiling to go the extra mile to make you look great. And I know that firsthand.David P. 10/14/2014
I can't say enough great things about Lilla Bello's work! Their flowers were the best part of our day!! They created the most wonderful floral arrangements, including a beautiful arch I wish I could always be able to look at. And they made beautiful flower collars for our two pups so they could feel part of the celebration as well. And that bouquet....LOVED IT! We also did a more non traditional COVID wedding and they were the best at communication and being flexible with plans while also helping us create our dream day. Can't recommend them enough!!!Roxana g. 10/11/2021
I was deciding between a few different florists for my wedding, and I'm so thankful I chose Lilla Bello. Toby was fantastic and so easy to work with -- she was kind, responsive, dependable, extremely talented and creative. I described the look and feel I wanted and showed her some inspiration photos from Pinterest, and she completely nailed the entire vision, bringing every detail to life. Everything was stunning from the tablescapes, to the bouquets, to the chuppah, it totally exceeded my expectations! I would highly recommend them for any occasion, and would hire them again myself in a heartbeat. Thank you Toby and team for going above and beyond to make all of my wedding floral dreams come true!!Rachel K. 4/29/2019
It's been three years now, that I've been ordering flowers and arrangements from Lilla Bello. I've seen two receptionist come and go, and really liked them all! I've ordered birthday flowers, congrats arrangements, Thanksgiving centerpieces, get well soon orchids, and so much more over the years. Always a pleasant, easy interaction and the flowers are absolutely gorgeous. Thank you, Lilla Bello!Margie R. 6/18/2019
We had the pleasure of doing business with Lilla Bello as they were the florists/designers for our wedding in August. My wife found them after doing extensive research online and meeting with a couple other florists her friends had recommended. We met Tasha and the team at Lilla Bello and after our first meeting knew we were in good hands. Having high quality beautiful flowers was top of the list for my wife and their product is incredible! Let's face it, there are a lot of great florists in and around the LA area but I think what sets Lilla Bello apart is just how much they cared about making our wedding so great. Everyone we dealt with had a positive attitude and very helpful in giving us ideas and working with our budget. 5 stars for sure for Lilla Bello and a life long customer and now friend for sure!Ryan M. 9/10/2017
I was very impressed w/ the photos of Lilla Bello's designs I had seen on Yelp, plus the rave reviews from previous clients. then I was impressed w/ Tasha of Lilla Bello from the very beginning---she immediately answered my previous evenings' email when she opened the studio the next morning!!! (I had been waiting for an answer from another area florist for 3+ weeks).Cathie L. 7/05/2016
Tasha was quick to address each one of my questions from many miles away (Memphis, Tennessee). soon I could see I had found "the floral designer" for our wedding rehearsal dinner, & my heart was set at ease.
I wanted tropical/Hawaiian colors---fuchsia, tangerine, & lime in leaf-lined glass vases. I also needed extra greenery to add texture to the landscape design. thankfully, I had Pinterest photos to help w/ my ideas.
even though I had not met Tasha face-to-face, I believed I could trust her to do what she said she could & would do---the proof was in the gorgeous photo after photo of the lush flowers & in the reviews of loyal & happy clients. so I signed the contract & paid her. the flowers exceeded my expectations, of course!!!
Tasha delivered the flowers at exactly the time she promised, w/ the greenery I had requested. the flowers were so fresh & fragrant & lush & gorgeous!!! (the bouquets lasted over 7 days!!!) I was so happy & proud to share them w/ the grandmothers, the mother-of-the-bride, the sister-of-the-bride, & special friends. I told everyone Tasha from Lilla Bello in Santa Monica designed the flowers!!! I am so happy to have a new friend in Santa Monica!!!
Creative, professional, kind and always exceeding expectations. We have had only exceptional experiences working with Lilla Bello and they continue to deliver for us even in the face of many incredibly unusual requests and specifications. Toby is not only truly talented but a true joy to work with. We will continue to look forward to future opportunities to work with Lilla Bello - Toby and her team are a treasured find.Kristin B. 10/30/2018
LB exceeded my expectations in every way! Toby and her team are awesome, they totally understood my vision while still offering their expertise to ensure we had the best end result. In the end, everything was perfect! The arch was glorious and the bouquets and centerpieces were breathtaking. Thank you for making my dream wedding a reality! You guys are the best!!Chelsea T. 9/15/2017
If I could give 10 stars I would!Natalie D. 6/22/2017
I am lucky enough to be a neighbor to Lilla Bello and have used them more than 50 times over the past year and a half. I have never been disappointed, and always get the most kind and flattering thank you notes from the recipients of their arrangements. The owner/staff/employees are the friendliest people with impeccable taste and quality. Similar to my star rating, if I had all they money in the world, I would buy literally everything in their store. It is gorgeous.
On top of that, their arrangements are exotic and unique, and they are very reasonably priced, responsive and punctual. I guess by now you get the point -- I am an absolute super fan and recommend this shop to anyone and everyone. 🙂
Lilla Bello is a hidden treasure worth finding! My first experience with Toby (owner and master floral designer) was for Mother's Day. I told her my mother's favorite flower and she made the most beautiful and unique arrangement incorporating that flower. Mom loved it!Lisa C. 12/30/2009
I have requested florals since and Toby has always amazed me with truly stunning arrangements and the recipients loved them!
I have worked with Toby for years! She has made floral arrangements for parties at my home, I've used her to send flowers to others, and I worked with her on my daughter's Bat Mitzvah, not just for flowers, but for the table decor as well. She is impeccable taste, and everything she produces is beautiful. She's the nicest person and so easy to work with!Ashly S. 10/29/2018
I've frequently used Lilla Bello for countless arrangements for holidays, events and Mother's Day. My experience has been nothing short of perfect.Natasha L. 4/28/2016
Most recently, Lilla Bello created the most stunning floral arrangements for my wedding. I was insanely specific about a wild, unstructured feel and my preferred color palette. My bouquet was the most delicate bunch of chamomile wrapped in gorgeous silk ribbon. Lilla Bello created a gorgeous suspended arch of florals that everyone was gushing over. Our tables featured delicate bud vases of different heights with florals in a palette whimsical white/green/hints of blush.
Lilla Bello clearly understood my vision and was able to make it come to fruition. Thank you so much Toby and Tasha for your attention to every detail and making my wedding day so beautifully magical. I highly recommend Toby and her team at Lilla Bello for any of your floral needs as they will surpass your expectations every time.
I desperately needed beautiful flowers and a trustworthy company in a pinch!! Called at 10am, and the most BEAUTIFUL flowers were delivered by 12:30pm. Not only are the notes handwritten and the flowers designed just right, but the delivery updates were frequent.Paige P. 10/31/2018
Can't wait to use again.
It kills me that it took this long to write a review. But better late than never!Jamie C. 9/07/2018
Toby and her crew are absolutely incredible! I came to Toby with an idea in my head of what I wanted my wedding to look like and she made it come to life 1000x better than I could have ever imagined. She did a great job dealing with a stressed bride and family members with opinions and was great to work with from start to finish. The amazing flowers and out of this world chuppah are still talked about by guests a year and a half later and I'm sure for years to come. Can't thank Toby and staff enough!
Toby and her team did the flowers for our wedding ceremony and reception, our theme was hollywood glam and the guys did a great job!Karen J. 4/22/2013
Everything was just perfect from my bouquet was amazing with all the jewels, the fabulous center pieces with the feathers and jewels to the open roses on the napkins for each of guests!
For both the ceremony and reception we didn't need any other decorations, the flowers were just beautiful and arranged perfectly
Toby was great to work with and had great ideas that meant everything was perfectly suited to our theme at a great price
I would definitely recommend Lilla Bello for floral arrangements! Super stars!
Toby designed the most beautiful bouquet and floral arrangements for my wedding. My guests and I were all blown away. I gave Toby an idea of what I was looking for and she truly outdid herself and perfectly executed my vision. I couldn't recommend Lilla Bello more highly for any special occasion. Thank you for making our big day that much more beautiful and special.Jennifer C. 11/05/2016
I connected with Toby at Lilla Bello through the Bridal Bar and I'm so very thankful for their referral. Toby was great and she was the only florist to provide me an estimate right after our first meeting. She took the time to walk me through it and she was always prompt with updates. I already had very specific ideas as to what I wanted, but I was happy to have Toby's expert opinion on editing out a few internet purchases I made in the wee hours of the night, convinced I wouldn't have enough decor at the wedding. I was happy for the anti-glitter paper intervention (in my defense, it did look pretty when I ordered it on-line at 3am).Sabine D. 11/05/2009
On the big day, Toby came to my hotel suite while we were getting ready to bring me my bouquet (it was gorgeous) and I was thrilled to see her smiling face. I must admit, the (control-freak) bride in me wanted to go off to the reception site with her to see how things were shaping up. But I managed to control my impulses since no one wants to see a bride in a robe.
When my new husband and I walked into our reception, it was stunning. Not only did the flowers look amazing, but Toby had really taken the care to stylize the decor. She arranged the votives, candelabras, crystals, etc. into little vignettes and charming little feasts for the eye. Every room of the venue had special touches and felt perfectly romantic - never under or over done.
Yes, Lilla Bello is more costly than average, but what you get is so much more than flowers placed in a venue. You get style and taste, all from the sweetest person who is always smiling. Everything Toby put together was beautiful.
I have known Toby personally for several years and she is always my go-to for floral arrangements when I need something special delivered for a birthday or something like that. When it came time to decide on who was going to curate all of my floral arrangements for our wedding day, I didn't think twice - Lilla Bello it was! From my incredible bouquet to my now step daughter's flower crown to the amazing flowers on our wedding cake, I would not have changed a thing and have received so many compliments from even the toughest critics. Thank you Toby and Tasha for making my special day truly shine and be a forever memory in my mind.Lisa H. 6/14/2017
I had an incredibly great experience with Lilla Bello Studio! So great, in fact, that I registered for Yelp just to write this review. I was a June '09 bride with a realistic budget (read: closer to normal, less close to what other brides seem to do,) but, despite my budget, I wanted a dream wedding that would make jaws drop. (In an elegant way, of course.) 🙂Emily F. 3/02/2010
From our first meet, she had me at "of course I can do that," and I had a mad floral crush. I showed her pictures of flowers from a celebrity wedding, and Toby not only interpreted these arrangements to reflect our bridal style, but she made them even more stunning. Every single floral detail of the wedding was stunning, from bouquet to chair garlands, floral pomanders to table arrangements. Drool worthy! Flower crush was right.
The best bit? Toby delivered a drop dead gorgeous wedding. You read right: DROP DEAD GORGEOUS! People are still talking about the wedding flowers, and I still daydream about them. sigh.
So if you want to hire someone for a wedding or another event with an exquisite taste level, and all within your budget, stop right now and book her before all the celebrities do. Don't let this vendor get away.
Oh, and did I tell you she's a total sweetheart? Can it get any better than Lilla Bello? You're right, it can't.
P.S. BTW, it turned out that our wedding was featured in a magazine, and I am confident that it's because of two things: Our wedding planner and our fab florist LILLA BELLO.
