I have long been a fan of blue and white tulipieres!  And as tulip season swiftly approaches, my thoughts are of filling my tulipieres with lovely colorful tulips. The “tulip-holders” are an easy way to arrange tulips, which can often be challenging to say the least.

At Chestnut Cottage, I have tulipieres on my mantel, as well as on the sideboard.

A grouping of blue and white that has more than one tulipiere is divine! This grouping was  from my 2012 Cashiers Showhouse space.

Seven images of tulipieres are from Pintrest.

The detail of some of these antique tulipieres are exquisite, especially the large antique floor standing one!

    Tulipieres are a nice uncomplicated way to arrange flowers. If I don’t want tulips to move around in a vase, I usually poke a needle through each their stems just below the tulip head. I find that having a vase that allows for some movement can be a great deal of fun to observed. My white tulips are already blooming here in Tennessee. I hope that the heavy frost tomorrow doesn’t nick them!

    We have had about 4 inches here today and now it is snowing again tonight! Oh I hope my precious peonies can stand the cold tonight!
