Gardeners, interior decorators, and more recently wedding couples have been choosing blooming calla lilies for their decorations. Using fresh calla lilies when the flowers are available from local vendors can be economical, but many times the demand for the flower and its availability can make it expensive. An alternative is to use artificial calla lilies in place of fresh blooms.
Inexpensive silk flowers are not made of silk fabric but a synthetic fabric blend that resists fading, holds dyes and the details of the flower better. This is true of inexpensive silk calla lilies that, in an arrangement or bouquet, will appear fresh cut. One of the advantage of using silk calla lilies, besides being long lasting, is that you can find the flowers in colours not available in natural form. Silk calla lilies can match or complement any colour scheme.
Calla lilies made from thin, flexible foam are a substitute for the real blossoms because of the realistic look and touch the artificial flower has. Additionally, foam calla lilies are available in various sizes, from mini to large, and a rainbow of colours. For more savings, you can make your own foam calla lilies.
Using paper calla lilies for your arrangement not only is inexpensive, particularly if you create them yourself, but can give an unusual and stylised appearance to the assemblage. Paper calla lilies are made from a variety of paper types, depending on the look and how much you want to spend. The least expensive paper calla lilies will be made from crepe paper or parchment paper. A fine Japanese paper, called mulberry paper, used for paper flower making, will result in realistic looking blooms.
Artificial calla lilies made from wood make a striking display when placed in a tall vase. Most wooden calla lilies are hand carved, imported, and inexpensive. Because the flowers are hand carved the end result will be stylised and unusual. Wood calla lilies are durable and can be used indoors and outdoors.
