Tulip Wedding Centerpieces

Tulip Wedding Centerpieces


Need a cheerful flower for your wedding centerpieces?  Try tulips!  With their tall height, wide variety of colors and pretty leaves, they are great for both big and small centerpieces. Plus, tulips are often more affordable than other flowers (especially in spring, when they are in season).


Above, tulips are paired with ranunculus and hydrangea for a monochromatic white tablescape.  Below, these two tulip centerpieces are perfect for round tables, when you need something low so that your guests can have a conversation with each other easily.










Tulips are often chosen for non-traditional floral centerpieces like this one below wrapped inside a glass bowl with willow branches and rocks.  Their pliable stems allow them to be flexibly shaped without snapping or splintering.







To give your wedding centerpieces more height and drama, use tulips with untrimmed stems. These pretty white ones (below) peep out of a summery arrangement filled with hydrangea.







Tulips can easily fill small containers, so put them to good use creating a romantic display at your wedding. Below, these lovely tulips in shades of pink and cream add a bright pop of color to a vintage tablescape.







For more modern centerpieces, arrange colorful tulips with other vibrant flowers and mix and match with metallics and stripes!











Vintage weddings often feature soft, lush flowers in muted colors.  Use pale pink tulips in simple jars to decorate your tables.  If you love pretty greenery as much as we do, make sure to leave the leaves on the tulips (above, left) when you have room in your centerpiece.







To draw attention to a single shade, find a tulip in your wedding color and have it as the focal point in your centerpieces.  For a purple wedding, chose a tulip in a radiant shade of plum to highlight the herbal sprigs in each centerpiece (below).











Woodsy weddings are very popular right now, especially those with earthy, jewel-toned color palettes. Use tulips in deeper shades of yellow (above) and berry (below) in these centerpieces to create darkly beautiful floral arrangements.







Want to accent the tulips in your centerpieces?  Use a single tulip as your place setting decor, as shown with this coral-colored example below.
