The wedding car as a foral spectacle

Just step into this vintage flower and we’ll head off to our shared future. Pardon? De DAF Daffodil is a classic choice as a wedding car. It looks beautiful in white, but equally good in pale blue. Once you reach your destination, you can fill the car with flowers. Who needs vases when you’ve got a DAF Daffodil?

A trip in the wedding car

If you have to travel from A to B at your wedding, it’s best to do it in style. Hang some tin cans and ribbons off the back in order to scare off bad spirits and get luck on your side. If your man has the final say on the look & feel of the wedding car, that’s fine. You’ll have the final say about the floral float into which the car will be transformed! Well why not? A beautiful classic car like this deserves its moment in the spotlight on a wedding day.

Daffodil as vase

Open the windows, doors and bonnet and fill the car with amazing wedding flowers. Don’t insert the flowers straight into the car, but placed them in oasis (florist’s foam) so they get enough moisture on hot days. The shopping list is flexible: Delphiniumpeoniesviburnumroses, rhododendronalliumhydrangealavender, cow parsley. Anything you like will work in this incredible car.

Flower of the month: Lily

It’s easy to create a contemporary natural look with lilies. There’s a wide choice of colours and shapes – it’s up to you! What adds to the lily’s appeal is that it’s bursting with symbolic meaning…

Colours and shapes

Lilies offer a host of possibilities. There’s plenty of choice in terms of colour, shape and size. Lilies come in serene white and calm pink, but also in eye-catching red, yellow, purple and orange. They also come with stripes, fringes or spots. The flowers can have a diameter ranging from 7 to 25 centimetres. Did you know, by the way, that double lilies do not have any stamens?

Symbolism

Lilies really are packed with symbolism. The most important symbolic meanings are:

  • Femininity. In Greek and Roman times brides were given a crown of lilies in the hope of a pure and fruitful life.
  • Love. In Victorian days receiving a sweet-scented lily told you: this is my beloved.
  • Purity. White lilies are often used at weddings as a symbol of virginity and purity.
  • Transience. The serene and pure appearance of the lily expresses emotions at times of loss and mourning.

Origin

Lilies are not only varied in terms of colour, shape and size, but also in where they come from. You can find them growing wild in Korea, Japan and parts of Siberia, but also close to the equator in India. In Europe, the lily is native to the Caucasus, the Balkans, Greece, Poland, the Alps and Pyrenees. It also grows wild in most American states, with the exception of the south-west part of the United States. You can certainly describe the lily as a world traveller!

Bouquet inspiration with lilies

The stylish lily makes a bouquet extravagant. Combine it with delphiniums, Helleborus leaves, a blue aster and Angelica gigas to create a gorgeous contrast between the dark colours and soft pink lilies.
