Pair a tall vase with a riot of lilacs -- as many as you can fit! -- for a display with drama and movement. Parrot tulips in purple with white edges add texture and pick up both colors of lilacs. To assemble this arrangement, we used a narrow-necked vase; we added white lilacs, followed by the tulips, and then purple lilacs until the bouquet felt full and lavish.
