Friday Flowers: Cattleya Orchids

Orchids come in just about every size and every color imaginable. From bright greens to deep, rich purples, and from ruffled and frilled to sleek and modern, the variety of orchids spans just about as much as the variety of all flowers in general. Today I’d like to share one of my favorite types: Cattleya Orchids. Cattleyas themselves even come in a variety of colors, but we usually see them in a vivid white with a buttery or bright yellow center. Take a look at these gorgeous arrangements that feature Cattleyas:
