While tulips make great gifts for a special occasion, they are also a great flower to use to decorate any room in your home. Here are some ideas from the floral design team at Carithers Flowers: Lemons and Tulips for the Kitchen or Patio Use a wide-mouthed pitcher or ball jar for this tulip arrangement. Add sliced lemons and/or limes and water to container and then arrange yellow and white tulips inside. This is a great item to add to a kitchen table or counter as well as a patio table.
