Lily Pond in a Vase

Created By: Johnny Miller, Matthew Septimus, Mikkel Vang


Use water lilies to make an indoor "pond" arrangement, substituting galax leaves for the much larger lily foliage.


  • Floral frogs
  • Cylindrical vases
  • Floral shears
  • Water lilies and galax leaves (special order both from a florist)
  • River stones


  1. Step 1

    Place floral frogs in vases. Cut stems of water lilies and galax leaves to desired heights. Insert one or more of each into frog.

  2. Step 2

    Cover frogs with stones, and fill vases with enough water to partially cover the leaves but not the blossoms.
