In ancient times, callas were used to celebrate the outstanding beauty in the Victorian flower language. As time went by, pink callas became one of the most popular choices of gifts to give on Valentine's Day since they are used to express adoration and appreciation. With these connotations, callas are the ideal Valentine's Day flower to offer as a meaningful remark.

Flowers That Pair Well With Callas for a Perfect Valentine’s Day Bouquet

Roses and callas make a lovely and charming bouquet combination. These two flowers are like a power couple! Bouquets that combine pink roses and white calla lilies for example give the result of an intriguing contrast.

They also go nicely with flowers that are fully bloomed, such as peonies and hydrangeas. But callas go well with more than just flowers. An arrangement with structured callas might benefit from the wispiness that greenery like eucalyptus and ivy can bring.

The Symbolism of Calla Flowers

The calla always delivers if you're looking for a genuinely unusual flower. These charmers are unmistakable and unmatched, with a single petal that wraps to make a stunning statement. A bouquet of callas can be a pleasant surprise to give or receive. It's a change from typical flowers, and you might be surprised by what they mean.

Because of the flower's uniqueness, it is often used to mark life's rites of passage. More broadly, the calla lily meaning is purity, holiness, and faithfulness, which goes back to its religious significance.
