Fresh-picked joy

First For Women - - Feel-good File -

“I love bring­ing touches of spring into my home,” says Lau­ren Blum, FIRST ed­i­to­rial as­sis­tant. “And this ‘stand­ing’ tulip duo wows! For each, I snip 16 tulips to 10 inches and ar­range the stems in my hand at an an­gle so they form a spi­ral that helps the bou­quet stand. I se­cure the bunch with a rub­ber band and rib­bon, cut the stem bot­toms into a level base and stand in a bowl. It’s an in­stant smile starter!”
