A beautiful tulip table setting inspired by pink and yellow tulips. This vibrant table is perfect for Spring gatherings or holidays.
Tulips are vibrant spring-blooming perennial flowers. They bloom year after year as the weather begins to warm up. I love tulips because of their vibrant colors and large petals. In the Spring I always have a vase of tulips on display in my home.
I was inspired by my favorite flower to create a gorgeous tulip table setting for Spring. The centerpiece is a vase of vibrant pink and yellow tulips. I accented the colors with pink striped napkins, green bowls, and faux tulip stems at every place setting.
A Tip About Tulips
Tulips are beautiful, but they don’t always last very long. Here are a few tips for extending the life of your tulip bouquet:
- Cut the stems at an angle – Cutting flower stems at an angle increases the surface area of the opening. This allows the flower to absorb more water.
- No leaves below the water line – Peel off or cut flower leaves that may rest in the water of your vase. Prolonged exposure to the water may cause the leaves to rot. This kills the flowers quicker.
- A penny in the water – When your tulips start to droop, change the water and add a *clean* penny to the vase. The copper in the penny helps the tulips not to droop! It’s amazing to watch this work overnight.

Pink and Yellow Tulip Table Setting
This tulip table set was thrown together at the last minute. I purchased a bundle of pink and yellow tulips at the grocery store the day before a dinner party. After I set the flowers on the table, I was inspired to style the table around the flowers. Luckily, I had all of the pieces I needed on hand!
Subconsciously I selected pink and yellow tulips at the store. Probably because I had several faux stems in that color at home. I placed a faux tulip on each plate for a little pop of color.
The pink and white striped napkins were leftover from a birthday party earlier in the year. They added some extra color and complimented the faux flower garnish.
Green bowls from Ballard Design complete the look of my table. They are fun and of great quality. Unfortunately, Ballard Design no longer carries these bowls, but these green bowls are very similar.
The green bowls also compliment my green stemless wine glasses! These wine glasses are my favorite for Spring. They add a little pop of color to any table. My glasses were a gift, but these green wine glasses are very similar.
Even though a put this table setting together super quickly, I think it’s one of my favorites! It also goes to show that you don’t need to spend a lot of time, or money, to set a beautiful table. Take the stress out of entertaining by keeping the decor simple. Simple tables for Easter and spring only need fresh flowers to tie everything together and elevate the look.
