What is a good way to use Hydrangea in a floral arrangement?

I have several hydrangea bushes and would like to display my flowers in the home.

Hydrangea flowers are stunning simply massed in a large (at least 10" tall and 4" wide) vase. Cut stems 20-22" long, and remove all lower leaves, placing in filled vase.

Cut all your Hydrangea with long stems. Choose a tall vase. Take 1st bunch of flowers (3-5) and trim bottom at a slant. Cut stems of next group of flowers 2-3 inches shorter, place around middle, tallest group. Continue cutting each group to cover outer edge of vase until you're pleased.

There's so much you can do with hydrangeas. Use them with other flowers to make a beautiful arrangement. Roses look great with Hydrangeas, and you can use daisies and carnations as well. Put them together in a vase or basket.

Pick the Hydrangea when it is in full bloom. Cut off the bush and hang upside down in a cool dry place. This will dry the flower out. Spray with hair spray to protect the flower and color. Arrange the Hydrangeas if a vase.

First you need to cut the most attractive hydrangeas off of the bush, then arrange them into bouquets by like or contrasting colors. Then tie the flowers with a ribbon or display in a vase.

From what I've seen they look best with all of one color in a vase of a neutral color. However you can try mixing white and green, or a combination of white, red, and pink for a spring / valentines day feel, blue and green also look extremely well together.
