Calla Arrangement for Center Tables

This is the most known way of adding red or white calla to your home spaces, especially because Christmas involves lots of family lunches and important dinners throughout the entire month. A simple way of incorporating Christmas calla is with an arrangement made of these (whether you prefer red, white, or both), and placing at least two or three throughout the entire table to create a more apprehensive decorative style.


Calla as the Main Welcome Centerpiece

For all the guests that will be coming to your house this Christmas season, you'll want to impress big time, and what better way than with a welcome 'wow' centerpiece to receive all of your loved ones? If you want to create a deeper look, use red calla. If you want a more delicate look at the entrance of your house, use shades of white or cream calla. Both calla Christmas colors will look magnificent at the grand entrance of your home.

Calla Christmas Mood

Although calla is not traditionally seen or known as a Christmas flower, many have opted to incorporate them into their floral decorative world for the holidays. Like many other flowers, calla is very versatile and presents a twirling, delicate shape that not only adds a distinctive view but also more texture whether used in arrangements or simply as center table decor.



Red and white calla can intertwine without a problem to create the perfect calla Christmas mood for the entire month. Remember that calla usually lasts about ten days, so make sure to restock on colorful calla to spend the holidays the right way.

The Symbolism of Calla Flowers

Both red and white calla flowers have different symbolism. For millions of Christians all over the world, white calla lilies are a symbol of rebirth and resurrection. This ties into the resurrection of Jesus Christ. As a result, the white flowers are commonly placed in bouquets and floral arrangements during the Christmas holidays. On the other hand, red calla lilies are symbols of courage and determination. A great calla mix all-in-all!

Now that there are a couple of weeks left for Christmas, it's time to start your decoration adventure using the most beautiful red and white calla flowers.
