Lilies with Alchemilla Bouquet


We placed the golden flowers in twin trumpet vases, which can stand together or on opposite ends of a sideboard. Include a few unopened lilies to extend the life of the display.


  1. Step 1

    Standing over a sink, gently pinch each stamen tip with your fingers. Wipe the pollen onto a tissue as you go.

  2. Step 2

    Fill a serving bowl with water. Attach a grid of tape -- either the floral or adhesive kind will work -- across the top of the bowl.

  3. Step 3

    Place alchemilla around the perimeter, and then cut short the stems on a dozen or so lilies and use them to fill in the center of the vessel.
