Elegant Calla Lilies

Cala Lilies are a beautiful, classic approach to florals and can add a lot to the architecture of an event! Recently, we were given the opportunity to play with calla lillies at a green, black, and white color-schemed soiree, and absolutely loved it. Take a look at how we styled the event:

Underwater flowers added a modern touch to the affair – and the candles on top illuminate them, to bring out the beautiful greens and ivories below!

The calla lily’s long and unique shape allows it to be a bold decor piece even without a vase! Laying them directly on to tables, with candles and jewels, is an elegant way to display your florals.

And of course, no wedding is complete without a gorgeous cake – like this calla inspired cake that was a real “wow-factor” at our event!

Happy planning!
