When using tulip centerpieces for reception decorations, you need to keep in mind the special nature of this beautiful spring flower.

If you make your floral arrangements several days before the wedding, keep in mind that tulips continue to grow after being cut. Because of this, they look best in a free flowing arrangement where the movement enhances rather than inhibits the design.
One of the newest flower designs is to submerge flowers in a clear vase. The tulips below are complimented beautifully by the look of the clear vase.
Take care to keep the tulip arrangements in a cool, dark room until ready to display. Warmth will cause the tulips to "blow open" much like a rose.
Potted plants also make attractive wedding centerpieces. Tulips in a plain container can be wrapped in foil or dropped into a basket cover for sweet wedding reception decorations.
Tulip Bridal Bouquets
Matching tulips are lovely as hand tied bouquets. Be sure to check out my
Hand Tied Tulip Bouquets
page for more ideas on using tulips. Another novel way to create a tulip centerpiece is to "pot" them with other greenery in a
Oasis Design Ring.
It gives a special "garden look" that is hard to resist.
