What Is This Flower?
(Do you know the name of this flower? The photo is from this blog, it's in a foreign language and Google translate is not functioning at the moment.)
Though all systems are not quite a go just yet, I am ready to start shopping for the project I have been planning for my moms Mother's Day gift. It is going to be a challenge that is going to take lots of time and preparation.
I'm a little delayed at the moment, I'm doing this on a very and I mean very tiny budget. We're talkin' like no more than $10.00 possibly less. Let's just say I've got my work cut out for me.
I will tell you more about the project and how I plan to pay for it all, later.
For now, I was hoping someone reading this, might have a lot of knowledge about flowers and their names, because honestly, I am clueless.
Flowers are going to be one of the essentials for the project and I'm trying to figure out what these are. Anybody know what the flower in the intro photo is?
I know these are Calla Lily's and I think they are so beautiful. I have kitties though and have heard that Lily's are poisonous and will kill cat's so they are not an option, if that's the case. This photo was pinned from Pacific Callas.
The only reason I know the name is because the person who pinned them, provided it in the description.
I also love these Orchids! Is there a specific name for them? And, do you know if they are poisonous for kitties? Wanna keep the little critters safe!
The color of my moms walls I think is sea foam, it's somewhat of a pastel greenish/blueish hue. I'd say more green than blue. Sorry I do not have a picture at the moment, so you'll just have to use your imagination.
Do you have any suggestions as far as some other flowers I should consider?
She is contemplating re-painting them in a different hue, but has not made up her mind about what color she wants to do it in. She has expressed wanting to do it in a beachy theme. She loves pastels.
The sea foam or whatever color it is, is what I have to work with for now.
I think it can work with a lot of colors- reds, pinks, oranges, yellow and white flowers would be ideal. I think coral goes great with sea foam and would be a good beach color.
I was going to use the flowers to brighten it up more. At the moment it is a little drab.
I know flowers can be expensive, so it would be awesome if you could come up with any that are
lovely yet budget friendly. However, even if they are not budget friendly, I can at least get some inspiration from whatever is suggested*
