Tulips are a beautiful flower that is easy to work with and arrange in fun ways. Next time you have some try one of these 3 ways to arrange tulips.
I love fresh flowers in my home. It makes it look beautiful and more like a home to me. I often pick up a bouquet or two when at the grocery store, Trader Joe’s is my favorite grocery store for flowers.
You can get a bouquet of tulips at Trader Joe’s for around $10 most of the time. They usually have many colors to choose from and are great for pairing with other flowers or alone.
I usually just stick my tulips in a vase and call it a day but my friend Bethany of Making it Modern has 3 fun ways to arrange tulips that will give you even more great ideas.
3 Ways to Arrange Tulips
Be sure to check out her video and the lovely arrangement ideas. They are simple yet beautiful and don’t require any special skills.
I love the idea of the fishbowl which would be great as a tablescape. I’ve also been on the hunt for a vintage pitcher to use as a vase after seeing Bethany’s arrangement. I have an aqua kitchen so an aqua pitcher with red tulips would look so good in my kitchen.
Keep Tulips Fresh & Upright
Be sure to keep the tulips in freshwater, change it each day, keep them out of direct sunlight, and snip the stems every 3 days.
You also want to be sure to choose the right vase. Avoid vases that curve outwards at the top and try to keep them in a vase that is tall enough to support them.
There is also an old-fashion trick of putting a penny made prior to 1981 in the vase. I have tried this several times and it seems to help. Who knows if it really does but it can’t hurt.
I will say you also need to keep them out of the heat. I tried to bring some home after a long trip to Oklahoma City and the heat did them in before I could even get them home. I will be waiting for cooler weather or buying them closer to home during the warm weather.
