3 stems pink Lilies (cut 25 inches)

We had a huge windstorm and I happened upon these Canary Pine boughs while walking. I was amazed at the size of their needles, some of which are 14 inches long. I thought the tall, slim, plate glass vase would be a perfect way to display them. This is a very large arrangement. It stands almost 27 inches high, perfect for a mantle. The pine boughs are accented with 3 stems of pink Lilies, some of which are just beginning to open up.
Floral Tip: For binding the two pine boughs together, and also for making the Bear Grass loop, you will use a special type of wire called bindwire (purchase here). It is made of wire that is paper wrapped and has a waxy feel to it. It can hold things with quite a bit of weight and stay secure.
Floral Tip: Remove orange lily stamens with a plastic fork. (They can stain fabric and fingers.) Use a Q-tip to remove any orange left on lilies.
Well if you have your flowers and pine, let’s begin.
