Planting easter lilies and tulips

Planting easter lilies and tulips

My neighbor received a pot of Easter lilies and a pot of tulips (both already in bloom) for Easter, and she wants to plant them in her yard. I haven't done that before so I didn't really know what to tell her. She's pretty new to the whole gardening thing. :) Should she wait until the plants are done blooming to put them in the ground? She's done a bit of searching but can only find info on tulips - though nothing on transplanting from pot to ground -, nothing on Easter lilies. Advice? Tips? Thanks!
Oh my goodness!!!
