A tenth anniversary is cause to celebrate and celebrate Lilla Bello did. With flower crowns, artisan cocktails and wedding industry friends all coming together for one very magical evening under the stars. This cocktail party gone gorgeous is certainly par for the course when you are a team of floral and event design geniuses. And with the help of Leila Brewster, it has a whole gallery of snapshots to be pored through..
The event itself was designed and styled by Lilla Bello, alongside nine outstanding friends and ‘go-to’ vendors who all graciously jumped in and contributed their talents.
Every detail was addressed and perfectly styled to represent Lilla Bello’s brand, which celebrates color, texture, comfort, warmth, elegance and California ease. Figmint Design created and branded the event perfectly with an invitation using rich woods and lush, bold florals.
From the moment you walked into the open courtyard area, you were greeted with the warm glow of the overhead filament lighting and the sweet sounds of Joseph Eid’s acoustic notes that brought an instant smile to guest’s faces. This was not going to be a stuffy industry event!!
Jessica and Heather, of the Lilla Bello team warmly welcomed all of the guests, flower crowns adorning their lovely locks! Multiple vignettes of vintage furnishings provided by Party Pleasers Event Rentals were strewn throughout the outdoor space signaling the guests to be comfortable and carefree. Have an extra cocktail, double dip, kick off your shoes, whatever! Long communal hi-boy tables, draped in gorgeous metallic linens by Designer Specialty Linens, perfectly matched their custom made pillows that were scattered throughout the lounge areas!
The season itself called out for wild free flowing florals, bright bold colors, summer dahlias and rich autumn foliages! And boy, did Lilla Bello deliver! Did we mention the basketball hoop chandelier with a floral installation spilling out of it, adjacent to a wall of succulents housed in old rain gutters zig zagging across the side of the building where Lilla Bello calls home?
The tasty fare by Schaffer’s Genuine Foods took some good ‘ol party favorites and turned it up 10 notches! Tiny shrimp tacos, gourmet phily cheese steaks, and beet falafels unlike anything you could ever dream up! Mosey on over to a gorgeously refurbished 1954 vintage camper, endearingly known as Your Little Local, where signature cocktails of Bourbon Old Fashioned, Gin Margarita and Gentleman Jack Raspberry Lemonade are being poured! Bevmo’s genius concoctions were a huge hit alongside a bathtub of bubbly and perfectly selected wines!
As the evening progressed, the photo booth, by Toby Ogden, got busy! With a basket of fresh floral crowns at their fingertips, these industry pro’s went for it! I mean, it’s about time they had their chance to jump in the booth themselves, right?? The incredible Leila Brewster Photography, captured every moment and every detail, as she does so incredibly well!
