“Red Sox” Calla Lilies
Yes, really! These calla lilies are actually named “Red Sox” and are the exact deep shade of red that is associated with the team’s uniform and emblem! This variety is exquisite alone in a vase or can be easily paired with other softer hues of red to make a jewel tone presentation. Another interesting fact about this species is that they are known for their longevity just as long as they’re stored somewhere cool and away from extensive heat.

“Festiva Maxima” Peonies
Here’s another great option for baseball lovers, which is called the “Festiva Maxima” peony that ironically looks a whole lot like a baseball! The fine red flicks that mark the petals can be compared to the red stitching of a ball and the shear white color of the blooms themselves are spectacularly round and full. You don’t need much more added to this stunner but if you must, only combine small stems, which will appropriately accent this peonies’ sophisticated appeal.
Clear Vase Filled with Baseballs
Sometimes all you need is a little edge. A tall, clear cylinder vase filled with traditional baseballs can make quite a hit for the person who loves this sport. Fill with dried flowers of place a bubble bowl on top of the opening and arrange with whatever flowers you like the best. Perhaps you’ve saved mementos from baseball games you’ve enjoyed together previously? Here’s a terrific way to display them! Not only is it a conversational piece, but she’ll be able to keep the contents for years to come!
