Just checking in with a quick “Easter Lily” tip.
This idea came to me last night before bed, and I tried it out this morning.
I purchased our Easter Lily at the grocery store last Friday for $6.
Can’t beat that price, and they really are so pretty.
The only problem is that they all come with that shiny colored foil on the bottom.
I’m not quite sure why this is, but I’m taking control of our lily.
Be gone you noisy, tacky, disco flashy, purple plastic tinfoil.
Be free my little Easter Lily!
Now I can enjoy your beauty while doing the dishes.
Just don’t get too close to me because I am allergic to your pollen.
If you would like to tie a burlap ribbon around your Easter Lily, you can find the roll at Hobby Lobby like this:

Wow Julie, I love this! I have never bought an Easter Lily, but they’re beautiful so I think I will☺I’m totally in agreement with you about the metallic pastels!! It’s the same thing at Christmas time with the poinsettias, they just have to put their mark on the season I guess. I absolutely LOVE your home Julie, it’s gorgeous. Thanks for your inspiration!~~☺Angie
Thank you, Angie!
Speaking of Easrer Lillies, I got one as a gift last year – when I fell down my stairs & broke my leg just before Easter ?. I don’t have a green thumb at all, but my Grandma sure did, and I remember her Easter Lillies coming back ever year. (But she lived in the South). I live in Michigan, and someone told me since I didn’t get it in the ground in the spring, I should place it in my basement (I have a Michigan basement) and bring out in the Spring & plant it. But it’s dead, what am I planting? Where should I plant it? Hope you can help me!
Thank you!! Oh and I took that silly shiny pastel paper off mine too!!
What a simple solution for ridding the pastel foil and upgrading your Easter Lily. I love, love, love their amazing scent! The Easter Lily looks like it fits into your everyday decor of your amazing home. I think I’m heading out to get some burlap ribbon and do the same for my lily. Thanks, Julie for a clever tip!
Thank you, Sue! I need to get one tomorrow! Happy Easter 🙂
Love the new look. Cut the pollen tips out of the flowers for allergic reaction and for the pollen deposits on everything they touch. When they finish blooming, plant them in the ground and let the top slowly die away. That process is what feeds the bulbs for next year’s blooms. Never ever cut them off until they are totally brown. You will enjoy blooms year after year!!
Just don’t let your kitty nibble on the lily. Even a small amount can be deadly for cats.
Great improvement with the burlap ribbon.
Yes, totally agree!
I put my Easter plant in a wicker basket and put some colorful Easter eggs around the base of the plant, like the Bunny stopped by and left some eggs.
If no wicker basket, then use some pretty fabric to match the house decor and wrap the Easter plant.
