I picked these lilacs from my mother's garden. Lilacs have a very woody stem, making them slightly different to prep. I have read that cutting (with sturdy scissors or a knife) and/or hammering the end of the stems help the stems to be able to absorb water better.

I also plucked a few Magnolia tree leaves to accompany the lilacs.
