Normally we associate tulips with springtime, but you might notice that your local florist or grocery store is already offering colorful blooms so you can create and enjoy tulip arrangements in your home.
Tulips are one of my favorite flowers (I think I say that about every flower) and I love adding them to interior spaces as soon as they’re available. You really don’t even need to arrange them when you bring them home. Just cut the tips of their stems and place them in a water-filled vase.
If you really don’t want to mess with attractively displaying them in a vessel, you can often find potted tulips that will last a long time in your home. I always try to select potted flowers that haven’t bloomed yet to ensure the longest-lasting enjoyment. This one is from my 2017 spring home tour.
The flowers above and below were both featured in another previous spring home tour. In the image below, I grouped three pots of tulips in dirt. I put the taller, lighter pink tulips in back and the darker, shorter ones in front.
Here’s another example of “messy” tulip arrangements. To create this carefree look, cut the stems at varied lengths and then arrange the tulips in your hand like a bouquet. Then place them in a vase or pitcher and you’re good to go. And speaking of pitchers, I love this one with a green leaf motif! It reminds me of majolica.
Tulips look great with a wide variety of flowers and I love the way they gently droop.
A few years ago I grouped yellow tulips, pink roses, purple hyacinths, and pussy willow stems in a DIY cabbage vase that’s super easy to create.
Tulip arrangements are especially pretty when you choose a few colors to place in a white pitcher.
Of course, a single color looks equally beautiful. I think we can also use a few beautiful tulips in our lives right about now. There’s something about a fresh floral arrangement that can lift your spirits when you’re feeling a bit blue or anxious.
My green enamelware pitcher is the perfect shape for displaying taller tulip stems.
Perhaps my favorite vase for tulip arrangements is one of my white pitchers.
Wouldn’t it be fun to splurge on a big bouquet of tulips and plop them into a basket? Tuck them into a large vase of water first, then place them in a basket for a casual display.
Now I’m inspired to run to the store to grab some colorful flowers to add a bit of cheer to the days ahead!
