Pink peonies and green viburnum make a vivid color combo that sings spring.

Here's how: Trim stems to varying heights so that peonies stick out randomly amid the viburnum blossoms. Split woody stems a couple of inches up the middle with shears to allow for better water absorption. Choose a narrow-necked vessel to help support top-heavy blooms. "Remember this general rule," says stylist Christopher White. "A finished arrangement should be approximately one and a half times the height of your vase."
