How to Keep Tulips Straight

Pin It now! A little trick I learned at the May wedding I DOC'd last year...put two pennies in the bottom of the vase and your tulips will stay up straight.  Even if they're already wilting, the pennies will straighten them right up. 

Case in point - I bought a bunch of tulips the other day (sorry for the terrible camera phone photo):
After plopping in two pennies and some fresh water, I came back to my office the next day and they were straight as an arrow.  (They liven up my office so much for the spring - it's amazing what a vase of flowers can do!)
