Use Tulips in Your Easter Decor:

Since I don’t over-decorate 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.

Place a 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!

Add Artificial Tulips to Your 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 tulips but they still provide a warm spring welcome…and they will last all season!

Create Table Centerpieces with Tulips:

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!…

Decorate with Tulips on Your Spring Mantel:

That year, I went bold with the tulips and added some red ones to the mantel…

The red tulips work well during the Valentine’s to spring transition.  I think we can all appreciate a vibrant color to brighten up those dreary late winter days!

Welcome Guests with Tulips in the Foyer:

Spring Flowers, Shopping and Wine

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…
