Tulips inside a bowl

tulipglobeThis is a very simple, but eye catching contemporary design, all you need are some tulips and a fish bowl vase the grass is optional.  The purple version below is in a smaller vase so only used one bunch of tulips.  You can also add pussy willow to complement the tulips.  The glass magnifies the tulips, drawing your eye to the beauty of these Spring flowers.

How to create

Make sure your fishbowl vase is clean.

If your tulips have been in water leave them out of the water for 1/2 hour so the stems are more flexible

If you are using pussy willow or bear grass, cut off the thicker ends leaving the more flexible stems and curl this into the vase first.

Remove any bulky or damaged leaves from the tulips.  Cut to a length that will allow you to curl into the vase.  Then add your tulips one by one, making sure the stems are towards the bottom.

Turn the vase slightly each time so the flowers are spaced around the vase, vary the heights of the flowers – it looks good if one or two poke out above the rim of the vase.

Dilute your flower food in cold water and pour into the vase, make sure all the stems are in water.
