I was thumbing through the Summer 2008 issue of InStyle Weddings...the one with Roselyn Sanchez on the cover and came across this ad for Casablanca Bridal. I was mesmerized..not by the gown that was featured but by the arrangement of casablanca lilies that adorned the background. Yeah, I'm probably the only woman that would notice something like that, when there's a gorgeous gown to behold. But nevertheless.. I was taken by the flower. It's so beautiful, yet simplistic... so dainty yet statuesque. Gosh, I've fallen in love with a flower.
She's pretty, isn't she? I've searched high and low for a gorgeous bridal bouquet of Casablanca Lilies to no avail. It worries me as I have yet to see a bouquet that truly showcases this bloom in a fabulous way. Most arrangements are antiquated..to say the least. It saddens me that the most creative photos I've been able to find are of a mundane cascade design... not my style. BLEH!
This flower looks like a star to me and should be treated as such.
I'm hoping my fantastic florist will wow my stilettos off. *glass half full...glass half full* No, she WILL wow my stilettos off!
