DIY: Lush Tulip Centerpiece


By: Janie Medley; Photos by Marvelous Things Photography

An easy DIY, these tulip centerpieces take about twenty minutes to make. The arrangement makes for a lovely reception centerpiece or décor for an engagement party or bridal shower!  



30 stems of Orange Parrott Tulips (from Fifty Flowers)
Note: (I used parrot tulips but you can use whatever tulips you love) tulips come 10
stems to a pack, so depending on how small or big you want the centerpiece, buy the
amount of tulips that will give you the look you are trying to achieve
Compote Bowl (you can use any cute bowl around the house, be creative as you want or
keep it simple)


The How-to: 

Step One: Fill the bowl with water

Step Two: Make a grid with the tape

Step Three: After cleaning the stems, cut off ½ inch

Step Four: Start placing the stems in between the grids until the top is completely filled

To accent the centerpiece, I placed a single stem tulip at each place setting, and to embellish the table, I placed stems of tulips in smaller vessels.

There you have it, it's just that simple!
