Lilacs, forsythia and other flowering branches make interesting cuttings.
Beautiful hydrangea blooms make a bright centerpiece to this charming dresser vignette. Stripping the leaves from the bottom half of the branches keeps the look airy and light. When using flowering branches or other top-heavy flowers, choose a vase that won't tip over, like the round vase shown here.
