Flowers, such as tulips, lamb's ears, or lilacs
Glass vases or small jars
Clay flower pots
As a shortcut, arrange cut tulips, lamb's ears, lilacs, or other flowers in glass vases or small jars placed inside the pots.
Cut the stems just long enough so that the blossoms clear the rims of the pots and appear to be spilling out.
