Last weekend we had three weddings and this particular bride used lilies in both her bridal bouquet and this piece that was created for her escort card table. What I love about lilies is not only their star shape but also their buds. This design included simple foliages accented with lily grass. Add a few pale pink Erica dendrobium orchids and a stunning display is born. Two weeks ago one of our clients chose all white hybrid lilies in tall rectangular vases accented with navy ribbon tied simply on the vase in a knot. The perfect centerpieces for the two young boys celebrating their holy communion, the mother said she was still getting compliments a week after the event.
Lilies are a perfect choice to use by themselves or accented with other flowers such as roses, gerbers, orchids, heather, or peony. Hybrid varieties in white, yellow and all shades of pink or Asiatic/LA hybrids in yellow, oranges, yellow, peach, red and pink make a strong statement in arrangements. I'm so glad our event clients are asking about these elegant beauties once again.
