Whether you pick them from the yard or grab a bunch at the supermarket, sunny tulips are certain to brighten any corner of your home!
The pro secret to beautiful blooms?
Wrap the stems in a sheet of newspaper, then place them in a vase filled with cold water for one hour. This allows the tulips to hydrate in an upright position so they stay relatively straight, which makes them look livelier.
After an hour, remove the paper and display.
