When it comes to wedding and event flowers, the graceful calla lily is one of the most iconic choices. Lilies are a truly lovely addition to any floral arrangement.
Native to South Africa, lilies are prized for their unique flower form. Their graceful, flaring trumpet shaped blooms provide an elegant touch to any bouquet or centerpiece. Their striking green leaves are a handsome element in their own right.
Calla lilies (sometimes called trumpet or arum lilies) are also versatile; they are a perfect complement to either modern, clean wedding themes or romantic and traditional décor.They come in different sizes, from larger blooms to miniature. Many people think of white when they think of calla lilies, but they are available in many colours ranging from red to pink, yellow to orange, or even a dramatic dark purple. Their form has enough impact to stand alone, which means they can be a budgeting bride’s best friend, or they can be mixed with other blooms for even more impact.
Calla lilies are an excellent choice for the DIY bride or event planner. Twine lilies of any color artfully in a glass vase and you have an instant centerpiece that is surprisingly dramatic and effective. Their bright green stems only add to the visual impact.
