DIY:Tulip Fish Bowl Arrangement

5 Feb

Mother told me I’m just like Grandma, “I always have to have flowers in my home.”  Every time my parents visit they never arrive empty-handed they surprise me with various bouquets and arrangements. In addition to flowers being beautiful there is something about having a fresh living organism living in the same room with you, I love how they make me feel, I love walking in the doors with these beauties to greet me. All month-long this is what will be on my table. Hope You you give it a try.



Remove the leaves very gently. Be sure to use long stem tulips. I was able to get away with these, but do yourself the favor.


Florist wire for securing tulips in place; fish bowl vase, (you can find them at your local crafts store I got mine at Target and Micheal’s).


Pour water and start arranging!



Happy Valentines month friends!

As always, Carolina xoxo

    Love how different the arrangement is, do they last longer by chance being in more water?

      I don’t think so. Just make sure you keep their head up out of the water. This will prevent them from drowning. Which I have done many times in the past. They are going on their 5th day. Water looks a little yucky, but their still pretty and bright. Hope that helps. besitos!
