The lily was a symbol of the Greek goddess Hera and her purity and innocence. One tale tells of lilies springing up from drops of milk spilled from Hera's breast as she nursed Heracles. Another tells a story of how the lily acquired its pistil: as Venus rose from the ocean, she saw a lily and, jealous of the beauty of the pure-white flower, created an ugly pistil that came up from its centre, thereby marring its beauty. This story accounts for the lily's additional association with fertility and eroticism.
It must be noted that lilies are also associated with death as well, signifying that in death, one regained one's lost innocence and purity.
All our Classic Lily bouquets come presented just the way they are, with no foliage, hand tied by real qualified florists in coordinated wrap and matching hand made bows. However you can upgrade to one of our Luxury or Extra Luxury bouquets to really transform your Lily bouquet by adding :-
We only use oriental lilies and on average each lily stem contains at the least 4 lily heads, giving a great value and long lasting bouquet of at least 24 flowering heads if you choose one of our bouquets of 6 Lilies.
All our lily bouquets are hand tied by one of our qualified florists who will individually wrap your bouquet in the most appropriate colour coordinated cellophane and finish it off with a hand made bow before packing it into one of our cone shaped delivery funnels for safe delivery.
Please Note... We "do not" put your lilies into a ready made sleeve, we use real floristry skills to present your bouquet as the gift it deserves to be. A blooming lovely one.
