Increase sales of tulips with these
Beautiful, versatile tulips are popular for virtually all spring
occasions. They’re perfect as gifts and also are irresistible
impulse items for home décor or “just because.” These three
innovative yet easy-to-master designs provide a variety of
perspectives on these customer favorites.
With coiled aluminum wire and fresh double tulips, this
design allows customers to truly spring into spring.
Repetition is achieved not only with the wire coiled around
each tulip, holding the stems in place, but also around the
shiny silver mint julep cup. This unified presentation is
perfect for adding a modern look to any atmosphere.
HOW TO: Coil wire around a taper candle, then remove
the coil. Beginning at the bottom of each tulip stem, pull
the coil up over the leaves to the tulip head.
MATERIALS: mint julep cup from S.N.K. Enterprises;
Apple Green Aluminum Wire from Smithers-Oasis; tulips from
the Netherlands Flower Bulb Information Center.
Yellow and green drinking straws complement a gathering of
creamy yellow tulips arranged simply in a clear glass
cylinder. In addition to their fun appeal, the straws serve
a mechanical purpose, holding the tulips in place. This
playful design is perfect for a child’s hospital gift or can
be suggested for restaurant tables.
HOW TO: Place drinking straws into a vase, and push
them around the interior perimeter to create a void in the
center. Arrange tulips into the void.
MATERIALS: 6-inch Cylinder from Syndicate Sales;
tulips from the Netherlands Flower Bulb Information Center.
Ribbon acts as the filler for this monobotanical tulip
design, which adds a burst of brightness to any setting.
Short lengths of wired ribbon are tied beneath each bloom,
with some of the ribbon tails curled upward and some curled
downward, for an uncontrived look.
HOW TO: Tie a short length of wired ribbon beneath
each tulip bloom. Slightly curl the ribbon ends.
MATERIALS: 5-inch Pyramid Vase from Syndicate Sales;
ribbon from Designer Dispatch Ribbon; tulips from the
Netherlands Flower Bulb Information Center.
