Gilding the Lily

Nothing could be easier or more glamorous than a lush bouquet of sweet-smelling lilies.

Here's how: Cut stems of lily buds very short and cluster together. Next add in a few sprigs of feathery astilbe. "When the lily buds finally open you get the big 'wow' factor," White says.

Expert tip: Blooms will last longer if you change the water and recut every couple days.
