Cymbidium Orchids

a on May 31, 2007 at 4:10PM

Colors/Varieties: pink, lime green, white, rust and yellow
Style: high style
What the Pros Say: Put those garish prom corsages out of your mind, please! "A single stem of an orchid looks gorgeous contained in a glass vase or hand wired into an elegant bouquet," says Donna O'Brien of Beautiful Blooms. Orchids, despite their delicate appearance, are quite hardy, making them ideal blooms that promise to last as long as your party does.
Use For: bridal bouquets, attendant bouquets, table arrangements, boutonnieres
Pair With: While stellar on their own, cymbidiums are happily partnered with full-headed flowers such as hydrangea in lime green and white.
