What popular flowers were used in flower arrangements in the 1930′s ?
I need to recreate flower arrangements that would be indicative of those used in the movies or around Hollywood or in movie stars homes in the Art Deco era.
Calla Lillies, as cut flower, “the white ones are popular at Easter and in wedding bouquets where they epitomize the 1930′s glamour … They have such superb lines that they have been used frequently in Art Nouveau … ” http://experts.about.com/q/Floral-Arrangements-2142/Finding-calla-lillies.htm
I personally think they are very nice as a simple boquet using only the Calla Lillies with ribbon and/or pearls wrapped/tied around the stems.
“Dahlias, quite the hot item in the 1920s and 1930s, are suddenly rising to the forefront again” http://goliath.ecnext.com/coms2/summary_0199-1667785_ITM
Haven’t found anything to back this up yet, but I think roses might have also been big in the 30′s
