Tulips - perfect for any home!

For those of you who love fresh flowers in your home but aren't sure what to do - maybe you're on a budget or just want something simple - here's my tip!  Buy tulips!  They are in season almost all spring & relatively inexpensive.  They come in a wide variety of colors & textures and you should be able to buy them by the bunch (1 bunch of tulips = 10 flowers) at your local florist* (or even your local grocer).  

Here's why I love them:  They design themselves!  I wish I would have snapped a photo of this arrangement when I first put the tulips this pitcher.  All of the tulips were standing straight up at attention.  But as they "settled in" they began to move and create a beautiful organic arrangement.  So simple but they to make a statement.  Now it's your turn to give it a try!  One last tip - cut the tulips at different heights so they have a little depth to begin with. 

These photos were taken 2 days apart.

*If you are looking for a specific color, height or look talk to your local florist - they should be able to find you what you need within a week or less.
