Friday Flowers: Calla Lilies

Did you know that a calla lily is not actually a lily? Yup, although these sleek and sophisticated flowers are just as much a show-stopper as their namesake, they are more closely related to the Jack in the pulpit than the lily! Now that our science lesson is over, let’s look at some pretty flowers! For the most part when I see callas, the trumpet-like blooms are bundled without any greens or other flowers. Very sleek and modern, right? But when I do see them used with other flowers, their unique shape adds a whole new dimension to the arrangement. And when those stunning deep purple callas are used? Oh I swoon every time. Happy Friday everyone, and enjoy these gorgeous calla lily arrangements!
