17 Simple Tulip Arrangements You Can Create Today

Would you like to add tulips to your decor this spring? Check out these 10 simple tulip arrangements that you can create at home today!

How to Make a Tulip Arrangement

Tulips have to be one of the easiest flower arrangements to design, honestly!

This time of the year you can find tulips in most supermarkets, and Trader Joe’s is always a good bet too.




And my favorite, classic white!

To start choose one of your favorite vases and cut the stems to fit the vase’s height. Cutting the stems is always a good idea in general, as it helps the tulips gain access to the water.

Tulip Arrangements for a Rustic Look

Here I found this copper bucket while out “ Thrifting with the Gals“. And then decorated our mantel with terracotta pots and orange tulips for spring. I simply placed a handful of the tulips into a glass jar filled with water and placed the vase into this thrifted bucket.

Tulips in Crocks

One of my favorite tulip arrangements ever was this Antique Crocks with White Tulips I created a couple of years back for Saint Patrick’s Day.

I love the combination of vintage crocks with white tulips and greenery. They go together so eloquently.

And you may also enjoy this Vintage Teacup Spring Mantel idea too.

Tulips in the Bedroom

Just this past week I shared How to Create an Inviting Guest Bedroom adding orange, pink, and white tulips to a breakfast tray and bedside table.

Table Centerpiece Tulip Arrangements

And of course table centerpieces are always a fabulous way to display spring tulips like this Spring Table Setting Ideas | Green with Envy.

White pitchers of all shapes and sizes accentuate the colors of tulips so beautifully.

Here I displayed a bouquet of tulips as a centerpiece on a small vintage table in our country kitchen in Maine in the post 6 Best Country Kitchen Counter Decor Ideas in partnership with Wayfair.

A vintage blue and white teapot was the foundation for this vibrant tulip arrangement.

Easter Tulip Centerpiece Arrangement

Here I painted a bucket that I bought from Michael’s and spray painted it blue for this Simple Easter Tablescape with MacKenzie-Childs.

And this is How to Style a Timeless Spring Table with my favorite, white tulips.

Old Champagne Bucket

I think my favorite vase yet for tulip arrangements has been this thrifted $8 old champagne bucket. You can find these at flea markets, thrift shops, second-hand shops, and there are many available over on Etsy and eBay too.

Old trophies also work well!

Here I used it to decorate this Fabulous Vintage Hutch Makeover.

These vibrant tulips with Terracotta Pots and an Apothecary Cabinet are doing a happy dance in our sunroom.

Tulips look fabulous in these newly collected vintage McCoy pots too!


Windowsill Tulips

I love these simple white tulips with greenery in my mother’s vintage white teapot in this post 5 Easy Ways to Decorate a Windowsill.

      It’s the copper in it, it creates some acid that tulips love. I usually add an odd number of them to all my tulip arrangements. Tulips are my favorites so when they are available I have at least two bunches on my tables. Since I started using this trick they last longer and stay pert!

    Is it the old penny or new penny?
