This beautiful bunch of orange artificial tulips is a perfect imitation of a bunch of real tulips. They even feel like their fresh counterparts. You can put them in a glass vase with water as if they’re real and no-one would know. They are especially pretty when combined with other colored tulips like white, pink, lavender or yellow and/or put together with eucalyptus or bundles of pussywillow. Take your pick and invite spring into your home.
Specifics of the artificial orange tulips
The tulips are 37 cm in height and made of synthetic material we call ‘real touch’. They look, feel and actually move like real tulips. One is still in a bud and the others are in different stages of flowering like in a real bunch. There is a metal wire in them so that you can bend them in different ways, mimicking real tulips. Just remember, once you cut the stem, avoid putting them in water as the wire in the stem will be exposed to the water and might rust.
The tulips are great in a simple vase but even more pretty in a tulip vase like the one in in the product gallery. It is one of the Tulipa-vases by the Dutch Designer Lotte van Laatum. The shapes of the vases are derived from the traditional Dutch Tulip vases. Because the tulips were so extremely expensive (at the peak in 1637 one tulip bulb was sold for 10.000 guilders, as much as a coach house at the canals in Amsterdam) the vases only have a small number of openings.
These vases are out of production at the moment. Lotte will be reproducing them again soon. If you want one now, I recommend setting up an alert on Catawiki or Ebay. I got this one from Marktplaats, a Dutch site. It’s well worth the search for a tulip vase of any kind, really, because tulips really do look great in it. And with these artificial orange tulips, cleaning the tulips vase – which is always a fairly imposing chore – will be a thing of the past. Forever tulips in a forever clean vase!
Help yourself to a bundle of tulips. From Holland, with love!
