Lilies, A Floral Inspiration

ashley livingstonTime to throw away your artificial air fresheners; one lily is enough to scent an entire room! By themselves lilies are eye catching enough, but they also look great paired with more delicate flowers and greenery. No matter the décor, there’s sure to be a lily that complements your color palette.

Bridal: White and ivory lilies are classic wedding flowers. Florists and designers have capitalized on the long stems, captivating guests with towering centerpieces, or bending their pliable stems to create curved flower sculptures. Try pairing Oriental lilies with hydrangea to create tiers of color that will have guests fighting over who will take the centerpiece home.

Simple: For an exquisite yet simple display, pair long-stem roses and oriental lilies. Try monochromatic colors for a subtle effect or contrasting colors for a bold statement.

Fall: Between football games, Thanksgiving gatherings and Halloween, fall is a time for entertaining. Enhance lilieswhitethe festive atmosphere with lilies and mums in shades of crimson, bronze and burgundy.

Exotic: Oriental lilies are superb cut flowers with large buds opening over several weeks to 8-12 inch flowers. With their succession of blooms and intense fragrance, a single stalk paired with 3 to 5 flowers in a vase ensures a fabulous presentation!

Summer: For a summer event, pair cool white Oriental lilies with pastel pink cabbage roses and lime green cymbidium orchids. For a richer monochromatic display, surround deep purple and burgundy lilies with lavender phlox and dark pink hydrangeas!

Having a BBQ? Splash into summer by mixing Asiatic yellow lilies with hot pink and orange roses. Add some asters and lime green chrysanthemums and your stylish summer arrangement is ready to go!
