Where to See Spring Tulips Before the Season is O-V-E-R!

Posted on

I launched Savvy Sleepers luxe satin pillowcases for hair, skin & lashes in 2012 in San Francisco before moving to Zürich, Switzerland for three years. Although, we made the short flight to Amsterdam once, I always wanted to visit Holland during Spring to visit the huge tulip farms, but never got the chance before we moved back to the US. Fast forward to 2016 and we re-located to Dallas, Texas where Savvy Sleepers is now based. Good news: I just discovered there are some amazing ways to see tulips here in DFW. Consider it the magical tulip season and beauty of the Netherlands right here in the Lone Star State.

Here are THREE WAYS to see Spring tulips in Dallas and the surrounding DFW area, plus how to plan for tulip season 2018!

1. The Dallas Arboretum tulip season ends this weekend so you still have a couple more days. But we just got an insider email from the Arboretum stating 'The Foxgloves, Japanese Red Maples and early-blooming Roses are bursting with color, there are guided tours of the gardens and DeGolyer House for you to enjoy, and relaxing music is playing at many of our most popular lunch and picnic spots.'

What is going on this weekend at The Dallas Arboretum? If you're in DFW, you're invited to commemorate the Power of Art from the 1960s. 'Enjoy live music, art displays, pop art flower making and more. Plus, we're turning Ann Stuart Courtyard into a 60's themed hang out, complete with retro furniture, nostalgic food, jukeboxes and a dance floor.'

2. Next, Texas Tulips in Pilot Point just 45 minutes north of Dallas. Texas Tulips is a pick-it-yourself tulip farm started by a family who moved to Texas from the Netherlands. Read the amazing family story here and visit Texas Tulips through April before all of the tulips are gone. UPDATE: The season just closed within the last couple days, so add this on your calendar next Feb - early April to make sure you visit.

The day we visited Texas Tulips was on a Saturday a few weeks ago around 10 am. It was packed. There is free parking, $3 entrance per person, and each tulip is $2.50 a stem.

On your drive back from Pilot Point, stop in the adorable Texas town of Prosper. We stopped and ate at a local spot that was packed called the Cotton Gin Cafe.

3. Finally, if you miss the chance to see the tulip gardens in person, head to your local Whole Foods or Central Market in DFW where tulip bouquets are as gorgeous as ever and under $10. Perfect for Spring & Easter decor to make your home feel bright.

Have a great weekend! Happy tulip picking and sleep better on our luxe satin pillowcases for hair, skin & lashes for beautiful healthy hair this Spring!
