Tulip Table Arrangements
SourceThe Martha Stewart Show, April 2005
- Tulips, assorted (Martha likes the Triumph, Parrot, and French varieties)
- Pussy willow branches
- Clear cylinder vase (4 inches by 7 inches)
- Wooden bucket (see below for ordering the Mini Grain Bucket)
- Flower food
- Clear elastic bands
Step 1 of 7
Cut pussy willow branches into 8- to 10-inch pieces.
Step 2 of 7
Make small bundles of 10 pieces and secure with clear rubber bands.
Step 3 of 7
Place the clear cylinder vase inside the wooden bucket.
Step 4 of 7
Wedge the bundles between the vase and the bucket.
Step 5 of 7
Pour warm water (plus flower food) into the vase.
Step 6 of 7
Arrange 20 tulips and secure them with a clear rubber band. Holding the tulips upside down while you're doing this works best.
Step 7 of 7
Evenly trim the tulip stems and place them in the vase.
