Ten Ways to Decorate with Tulips

For most people, the beginning of February signals that Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. But for me, it signals something else as well…the arrival of tulips…both fresh and faux! They are not only one of my favorite flowers but also one of my favorite ways to add color to my home! And… they are so versatile! Just in case you are as excited about these wonderful gems as I am, I thought I would share my favorite ways to use them!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT DIY Spring Tulip WreathI have to share my favorite first…my DIY SPRING TULIP WREATH! I can’t wait for it to get warm enough for me to put it on my front door! Doesn’t it just say spring? You will find the directions HERE.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Pottery Barn Inspired Spring CenterpieceI love this one…my POTTERY BARN INSPIRED SPRING CENTERPIECE… so simple yet so pretty! And it’s perfect for Easter!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT A Simple Spring TablescapeA multitude of tulips fill the basket centerpiece in my SIMPLE SPRING TABLESCAPE. Add more texture with woven chargers, a bunny at each place and a pretty patterned napkin and you are good to go!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT A French Country SpringIt’s also easy to add a few tulips by simply dressing up their pot! In my FRENCH COUNTRY SPRING CENTERPIECE, I covered the pot with Kraft paper featuring music notes.
