Birthday Celebrations

Birthday Parties

Planning a birthday party in your home or in a restaurant is a great opportunity to being in bright celebratory color, perhaps a bold linen and tons of pretty florals. Let us know a bit about the guest of honors personality so we can make suggestions on style, color, and seasonal blooms – so that every guest experiences the essence of the guest of honor throughout the party. Need more than florals? We can assist with china, linens, glassware, cutlery, furniture rentals – we’ve got talented friends in all of these categories! Need a photographer, cake designer or caterer? We know the best in town!

Love Notes

    5 star rating 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.

    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.

    5 star rating The BEST Floral Design Studio in LA!!! I was first introduced to Toby at Lilla Bello Studio when I was the recipient of one of Toby's little floral sculptures. After that I went to Toby when my cousin gave birth to her first child I ordered an arrangement from Toby, that after 3 years, my cousin still talks about. She's been making me look good ever since. Toby has a wonderful way of talking you through what you need, even for someone as clueless as I am when it comes to flowers. As a single guy, Toby is invaluable. She's not only helped me for requests in LA but in other states as well.

    So if you really want to give something uniquely beautiful and utterly impressive, I can't recommend Toby at Lila Bello Studio enough!!

    5 star rating 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!

    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!

    5 star rating 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.

    5 star rating 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).

    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.

    5 star rating Our wedding photos are beyond gorgeous thanks to Toby's gorgeous designs and florals!!!!!  

    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!!!!!

    5 star rating It kills me that it took this long to write a review. But better late than never!

    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!
