Bringing you the best florals
Since 2004, Lilla Bello has been recognized in Los Angeles as a concierge level floral firm. Lilla Bello’s founder, Toby Kassoy, comes from a background as an Executive Assistant (nearly a decade) in the entertainment industry, and was trained to have a meticulous eye on both quality and service. Our team is trained to get to know our customers in order to successfully keep one step ahead of your floral needs. We will store your personal preferences in our database such as flower you love, flowers you don’t love, regular recipients information, photos of past orders, addresses, and upon request, billing information. In other words, you can get back to your day quickly, knowing your order is in trusted hands.
Furthermore, we take this flower stuff pretty seriously. We know we’re not saving lives, but we certainly are impacting lives. Flowers, have stood the test of time, as a singular gesture that brings absolute authentic joy to whoever is on the receiving end. You will never see a computer generated note card from Lilla Bello– rather each card is hand written on quality stationery…after all, this card could quite possibly be the first of a budding romance, and be kept and cherished for years to come! That’s kind of a big deal.
Allow us "designers choice" and we will create something gorgeous from todays most beautiful blooms!
Our floral arrangements are also approached with a personal sentiment in mind. We don’t expect our clients to know the names of floral specimens or the seasonality of thousands of possible flowers, that’s our job! We’re going to ask you questions about who that person is: maybe it’s a work colleague and all you know is they have a sharp fashion sense and their office is simple and modern. Or maybe it’s your best friend and you know how much she loves bright happy colors. These are things you can tell us that offer so much inspiration and direction on our end when creating the perfect floral composition to send on your behalf.
As part of this service, we call your recipient ahead of time to confirm that they are available to receive florals. We are not doing this to be “party-poopers” and ruin the surprise. We simply let them know flowers are headed their way without anything more being revealed. And trust us, the excitement and intrigue is palpable. Please know, long gone are the days of $29.99 flowers to be left on a doorstep. You just dropped some real cash on this gift and we want to make certain they arrive safely. Also, no offense, but sometimes (lots of times), you give us the wrong address, that person doesn’t work there anymore, or they took the day off for their birthday and didn’t come in to work. We will follow up with you to let you know that they requested their florals to be sent to their home address, or the following Monday when they’re back in town. They’re happy, you’re happy, we’re happy, everybody wins! Breathe…we’ve got your back! You’re in good hands. Should any issues come up with delivery, we will contact you right away. We will see your order through to the very end and make sure it arrived safe and sound.

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!Jamie C. 9/07/2018
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). 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!!!Cathie L. 7/05/2016
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.Taya W. 6/13/2017
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!I have requested florals since and Toby has always amazed me with truly stunning arrangements and the recipients loved them!Lisa C. 12/30/2009
If I could give 10 stars I would!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. 🙂Natalie D. 6/22/2017
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.Sabine D. 11/05/2009
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
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!!David R. 2/15/2010
