Making the Perfect Calla Bouquet for Mom

If you want to create a more personal gift and not buy a bouquet from a flower shop directly, you can opt to buy the flowers yourself and create a sort of DIY flower gift. Here’s how:

    1. Begin by selecting fresh calla lilies in your desired colors. Trim the stems at an angle and remove any excess foliage.
    2. Arrange the calla lilies in your hand, crisscrossing the stems to create a spiral effect.
    3. Add filler flowers or foliage between the calla lilies to enhance the bouquet’s texture and volume.
    4. Secure the stems with floral tape, ensuring the arrangement holds its shape.
    5. Trim the stems to the desired length and place the bouquet in a vase filled with water.
    6. Finish the bouquet with a ribbon tied around the stems for a polished look.

Mix and Match Colors and Textures for the Perfect Bouquet

If you’re more of a mixer and like to include callas along with other flowers it is also possible to do so, of course, using callas as the predominant flower. What could be more beautiful than a loosely tied bouquet consisting of a few special flowers with character, which are given the space to show themselves? Flowers that differ from each other in color, shape, structure, and length.

You can decide if you want to go for a mono-colored yet multi-varied bouquet. Or perhaps some ton-sur-ton variations? Take a look at how easily the calla feels comfortable being on its own on a spectacular bouquet or even among other lovely flowers and blends divinely without losing its powerful appearance.
