Repotting your lilies into a single pot shouldn't hurt them a bit. Use fresh potting soil and a nursery pot with adequate drainage holes in the bottom. Lilies are seasonal bloomers so you might want to wait until they have finished blooming and then pot them up. If you try to move them while they are still in full flower, the stress may make them drop their beautiful flowers.

Best wishes with your lilies!
