Floral Love: Deep-Hued Calla Lilies

January 24-25, 2014: Edgardo Bonilla Trunk Show
January 21, 2014
Sunday, January 26, 2014: I Do! An Event for the Stylish Bride
January 23, 2014

Nothing sets the tone of an event quite like plum, burgundy and black-colored calla lilies.

In its shape, a dark-hued calla lily is stylish, an instant classic. It’s also romantic, holding a sort of magical quality. But at the same time it’s mysterious. They say a photo is worth a thousand words; a calla lily is, too.

These qualities come with a cost, however, in monetary and health form. Calla lilies are notoriously higher-priced, which makes them an especially luxurious addition to a centerpiece or bouquet. And it cannot be overlooked that calla lilies contain oxalic acid and are poisonous to humans and animals if ingested.

We love the look of a mass of calla lilies, whether neatly stacked or packed together in a bouquet. Not to say a single calla lily, say, in a bud vase, can’t hold its own; it can.

Admire. Enjoy!
