Tulip Lemonade?

I saw an idea for a fun bouquet on and I thought to myself, "I can do that for WAY cheaper!" 

I hunted for a clear, glass pitcher for over a month. Target had one but it was $12.99 and I just wasn't ready to pay that. I searched the local Goodwill about once a week. I was about to lose hope when I found just what I was looking for. She is beautiful, petite, and only $3.49!!

I spent $3.99 on faux lemon slices from JoAnn's. I would have used a coupon but I couldn't find them before I left for the store and I already had the flowers in the pitcher. 

Finally, I bought yellow tulips because they are Chance's favorite flower, and conveniently on sale for $5.99 for a 10-stem bouquet.

So here is my rendition of a fun spring bouquet. I tied a ribbon around the pitcher just for another little splash of yellow. I spent roughly $13 and I will be able to reuse everything but the tulips. 

Mine isn't quite as lemony because I chose flowers with a lot of green due to the leaves. Their bouquet is full of flowers with no visible leaves. I love it nonetheless.


  1. Oh I LOVE That!!!!!!!! I know what Im doing this summer for my Parties!!!!!

  2. I love it---I think the extra green adds a lot anyways and makes the yellow stand out more! Well done, my friend... Well done!

  3. Oh I love this! What a great idea! This seems affordable and doable! Both huge pluses to me.

  4. Such a CUTE CUTE CUTE idea! Never would have thought to do that, but can't wait to do it now! Thanks so much for linking up and sharing!
