Tulips…I just can’t get enough of them and I love to decorate with them. Although they don’t last long, I just can’t stop myself from buying them this time of year! They are a simple and inexpensive way to update a room for spring.
Here are some ideas to decorate with tulips in your home…
Simple Easter Decor:
Since I don’t overdecorate for holidays, I love the way these white tulips contribute to the little bits of Easter decor around my house.
And I really do mean “little bits” when it comes to Easter decor! You can see my three little ceramic bunnies up on the mantel in the background. Yeah, those and the kitchen bunny are almost all I use…simplicity.
Simple Vase of Tulips on the Kitchen Island:
Just a simple vase of flowers is all I need to brighten up the kitchen island for spring. This towel I bought at Homegoods pretty much says it all!
Artificial tulips on the front door:
And what better way to welcome guests to our “home sweet home” than with tulips hanging on the front door. Obviously, these are faux ones but they still provide a warm spring welcome…and they will last all season!
Although the white tulips are probably my favorites, I have used more colorful ones on occasion. Plus, I have always loved using pink tulips with navy…such a cheerful color combination.
Pink tulips really stand out against white cabinets too…
I use my crystal vases all the time. They are probably my most used wedding gifts!
Although, I do fill my white pitchers with flowers almost as often as the crystal vases! The white pitchers have more of a casual farmhouse look than the crystal. I usually buy them in Homegoods whenever I see them. You can never have enough of those!…
That year, I went bold with the tulips and added some red ones to the mantel…
The red ones work well during the Valentine’s to spring transition. We can all appreciate a vibrant color to brighten up those dreary late winter days!
Tulips in the Foyer:
My foyer is another place I like to put a vase of tulips. Once again, I bought white ones but those tulips were starting to droop down a bit by the time I took the picture.
**Helpful tip: Someone mentioned on Instagram to put a penny in the water. Recently, I tried that with my latest tulip purchase and so far, so good! Really, I will do anything to keep them fresh longer! Apparently, the shape of the vase seems to help too. On this vase above, the top is wide so I think the flowers tend to fill out a little faster.
As you can see in the photo below, the tulips don’t droop as much when I use the vase with the narrow opening…
Obviously, I seem to go for the same look each year…this was last year’s spring counter setting. Either way, I never get tired of tulips in the spring!
