With spring upon us and flowers blossoming everywhere, you may want to decorate your space with those beautiful blooms. No flowers are more impressive than the lily. Coming in multiple varieties such as Stargazer, Tiger, Calla, and Easter lilies, these flowers are an innovative way to bring drama to any room. Lilies offer a lovely scent to your space and represent both hope and innocence.
Fresh lilies have a vase life of 10 to 14 days, which gives you the chance to enjoy these flowers for almost two weeks! While nothing compares to the real deal, there are some disadvantages to using real lilies versus artificial ones. There is quite a bit of pollen with live lilies, which can both affect those with allergies and create an extra mess you may not want to clean up. Another thing to consider is that lilies are poisonous to both cats and dogs if you are a pet owner.
Regardless if you decide to use imitation or real lilies, they are sure to bring a striking ambiance to any room. We've compiled 15 fabulous lily flower arrangements to inspire you to use these gorgeous flowers in your home decor.
1. Compact Pink Arrangement
Bunching flowers closely together gives a very organized look to this flower design. The white lilies arrayed with coral roses and pink hydrangeas make a feminine little bouquet. Because of its smaller size, this arrangement would look nice on a side table. If you wanted to use it as a centerpiece for your dining room table, you might want to create two bouquets depending on your space.
2. Beautiful Tiger Lily Bouquet With Eucalyptus
Tiger lilies are superb flowers to use to create height and drama in your floral displays. This arrangement is more loosely arranged but still has good structure with the symmetrical placement of the other flowers and the sprigs of eucalyptus. Live lilies will need their stems cut at a 45-degree angle before being placed in water. If you use silk flowers, you could tie a ribbon around them and display them without a vase.

3. Pretty Pink And Purple Composition
This bouquet of varying shades of purple and pink showcases how choosing flowers in the same color family is an easy way to create a pretty arrangement. When arranging your flowers, use the larger lily as your center focal point and place smaller blooms around them like a frame. Be sure to remove all leaves below the water line to prevent bacteria from contaminating the water.
4. Colorfully Rustic Twine Arrangement
Lilies come in all sorts of shapes, sizes, and colors. This display brings a lot of color to your space with yellow lilies, orange roses, and purple flowers. The lack of symmetry lends a natural look to the bouquet, making it seem like these blooms were freshly picked from a field of wildflowers. The use of twine around the vase adds a rustic touch to the composition.

5. Classic White Lilies With Red Roses
There is something stately about arranging white lilies with red roses. Because of this bouquet's size, it needs ample space to be displayed so as not to unbalance your decor. If your real lilies have prominent stamens (the male part of the flower where the pollen is), cut that part off to reduce any mess. Pollen can stain surfaces, so you'll want to do this over your trash can or use a tissue to catch it.
6. Pink Lilies With Greenery
This arrangement demonstrates that you don't need a variety of flowers to create a visual impact when using lilies. These pink stargazer lilies are quite stunning on their own, and the accent of greenery elevates their untamed beauty. Make a statement by displaying these flowers on your kitchen island or your coffee table.
7. Warm Sunflower Composition
Pairing red-orange lilies with sunflowers create a bouquet that evokes a summery ambiance. In this bouquet, the sunflower is used as the focal point, with the lilies framing them. Due to the large size of both sunflowers and lilies, it is important not to use too many flowers to throw off the balance of the arrangement.

Using imitation flowers for this arrangement would also allow you to use this as a festive centerpiece for your table at Thanksgiving.

This large arrangement uses dark red calla lilies to create an eye-catching bouquet. The darker shades used in this design make it appropriate to be displayed with your winter decor.

In floral design, there are three types of visual balance you can use. Symmetrical, asymmetrical, and open or radial balance. This design shows how to create an asymmetrical arrangement, as the lilies and roses counterbalance each other. It is a simple composition but one that makes an impression.
13. Assorted Imitation Flower Bouquet
With new technologies, it can sometimes be challenging to differentiate between authentic flowers and artificial blooms. As evidenced by this multi-colored design compiled completely with imitation flowers. The beauty of using silk flowers is that you aren't limited to certain seasons, and they're much easier to care for. If your artificial flowers get dusty, wipe them clean with a damp washcloth.
14. Pink and Blue Design
The strategically placed lilies and the radial arrangement of the greenery in this composition create a visual rhythm that catches your attention. The delicate blue flowers with the pale pink ranunculus bring an enchanting touch to this bouquet. These flowers would look lovely on your buffet or office desk.
