Often times a vase of hydrangea ends up being a tight grouping of just the blooms, which looks pretty darn awesome. But that means the beautifully verdant green leaves miss out and get tossed. Sort through after they have been pulled off and select the best looking ones as well as mostly the same size. Stack them up, fan them out, and then add to a clear vessel with a bit of water in it. Whether placed next to the flowers or all on their own, they will shine.
