DIY Wreath Making with Baylor Chapman

We kicked off the holiday season with Baylor Chapman of Lila B. Design last weekend at Celebrate the Season Boutique Garden Center in Bend, Oregon.  Baylor brought her D.I.Y. Wreath Making Kits up from San Francisco for attendees to create their own unique wreath.

We had music playing, a wood fire burning and the smell of fresh greens in the air!  To see if Lila B. Design has a workshop in your area, go to her Classes & Events page.  Baylor Chapman’s The Plant Recipe Book makes a great gift for the flower and plant lover on your list!

Thank you, Lila B. for helping us get into the Holiday Spirit!


Photo Shoot with Zenaida Sengo


The lovely San Francisco artist, author and horticulturalist Zenaida Sengo recently brought her talents to Steel Life.  Zenaida styles interiors of Flora Grubb Gardens, and authored/art directed Air Plants: The Curious World of Tillandsias. We are thrilled  with her photos of the Jack planter and hope to collaborate with the West Coast talent again soon!
