Do you really feel like buying a Christmas tree and then decorating it again this year? With the holiday preparations coming up, you aren’t the only one thinking ‘there has to be another way’. Fortunately, you can give your home that wonderful Christmas feeling with a lot less hassle. The solution? Lilies and calla lilies! In minutes, these flowers will have you enjoying all the glitter and glamour of Christmas all season long.
When December arrives, it’s time to go all out with the glitter and glamour of the holidays. Silver? Gold? Mother of pearl? It’s up to you! Bright pink lilies are perfect for arranging in a black mother-of-pearl vase or bowl. White lilies in silver vases or bowls ‘deck the halls’ with the magic of Christmas. For a truly dazzling display, combine lilies with calla lilies in a golden or mother-of-pearl bowl. Add a few colored Christmas baubles and voilà: Christmas has arrived!
Did you know that…
- as calla lily flowers age, they often return to their original green color?
- there are unscented lilies? These Asiatic and LA lilies are perfect for everyone who dislikes the fragrance of lilies.
- there are double-flowered lilies? Instead of just one row of petals, these double-flowered lilies are filled with petals. Although not available in large quantities (as yet!), they really do exist!
