Tulip Trick

My sister gave me a gift card to Fresh Market for my birthday (great gift, btw). While I was picking up a luxurious lunch last week, I was stunned by the beauty of the tulips. I couldn't resist! 

I bought a bouquet to try Cup of Jo's tulip trick. I had just seen it on her Instagram and blog, and I was up for an experiment. 

Here's the trick: Poke a hole with a pin through the base of the stems before putting in water. It will keep the flowers from drooping.

3 days later with fresh water, cut stems, and new tiny holes in the base. 
Oh, and I put a penny in the bottom. That's another trick. 

Don't you love it?
