If You Have to Use Grocery Store Flowers In Your Easter Centerpiece, Choose These
We don’t mean to insult our sweet and fragrant lilies, but this year we’ve set our sights on bulbilicious tulips. From classic single stem arrangements to a basket bursting with blooms, there are plenty of ways to arrange these little stunners to create a beautiful display worthy of the season.
Dress up store-bought potted tulips with moss and a container upgrade. Keep the pot close to a window so it can bask in the sunlight, but be sure to rotate it daily to avoid droopy flowers.
Three petite bouquets create one stunning arrangement. If you don’t have a linear vase like this one, a cluster of single tube vases will work as well.
Mason Jar Bud Vase
On first glance, you might think there is another flower variety in this tiny arrangement. The open flowers are indeed tulips. Delicately spread the petals of each bud to create the look.
How To Make an Easter Centerpiece
Mix up traditional floral arrangements with a bouquet of bright carrots at the heart of this more subtle Easter-inspired piece.
This serene centerpiece is ideal for a spring cocktail party or your Easter dinner. Fill three small vases in various sizes with water. Place a tulip stem in each. We placed one upright, the other facing downward, and the third floating on top of a wider vessel. Float a small votive in at least two of your vases. The candlelight will flicker off the water and provide stunning ambiance.
Opt for two or three small bouquets to achieve this look. Cut all the stems the same height and place them at once in a wide-rimmed vase. Spin the stems just a bit so they create a circular effect, as shown here. If any of the leaves are hanging over the side of the vase, twirl them around a pencil to create a corkscrew.
Basket of Buds
This stunning centerpiece might take a bit more skill than some of the others. We used roses and a bit of filler in addition to the tulips, but you can certainly stick to one flower variety if you choose. Floral foam is the secret ingredient here. You also might need to insert floral wire in some of the taller tulip stems to keep them from drooping.
