Tulips are one of my all-time favorite flowers and simply shout Springtime to me. I love buying cut tulips for myself this time of year and believe that they are a beautiful addition to any Easter tablescape. I purchase my tulips at our local grocery store but you can also find cut tulips at garden centers and flower shops. This year, I decided to try something new by creating a Topiary Tulip Chandelier. Here is what you will need to create one for yourself.
1. Faux topiary ball.
3. Floral water picks.
4. Cut tulips.
1. Cut the stems of the tulips and place each stem in a floral water pick.
2. Tie a ribbon to the faux topiary ball and attach to a hook in the ceiling.
3. Arrange stems in the faux topiary ball.
That is seriously it. So simple! This is an easy and elegant way to add drama and interest above your table. I usually dress up my dining room table for holidays, but this time I chose to create an Easter tablescape on our everyday kitchen table. I absolutely love the way the tulip topiary chandy looks. I think I’ll be using this technique in the future with more cut flowers. The beauty of using cut tulips is that the stems naturally bend downwards creating a cascading effect as they open.
For the tablescape, I started with a blue throw for my “tablecloth”. I often use this trick when I don’t have a tablecloth that quite works and I don’t feel like buying a new one. In the center of the plates, I used bird nests from the dollar store filled with yellow Cadbury eggs.
The yellow polka-dot ribbon was a fun addition to the yellow tulips and yellow eggs. My carrots were actually such a bright orange and were distracting, so I glazed them with yellow paint!
The place cards are from Martha Stewart and were something I already had on hand. The bunny was from Pottery Barn, the bee glasses from Christmas Tree Shop, and the egg salt and pepper shakers from Target.
And here are just a few more fun pictures showing off my Easter Tablescape.
