Free online workshop edible tulips & King's Day celebration

A gorgeous looking treat for holidays such as Easter and King's Day ánd the way to impress friends & family. Get your kids together, ask your grandkids to join online and get ready for this free online workshop edible tulips.

online workshop edible tulips Verita's Visit HollandThere are two things I miss right now: you, my participants & the sight of the tulip fields. So, my idea is to do an online workshop edible tulips. This way I can see you, connect with you ánd we can make these tulips together. As this treat looks great on the Easter brunch / dinner table or at any other celebrative event we will connect online on Good Friday 10 April. For those who can't make it: there's a 2nd session on April 27 ( our King's day).

What do you need to participate:

  • cherry tomatoes - I've bought cute tomatoes already shaped like a tulip
  • cream cheese
  • spring onion or green beans

For the King's Day session it is nice to have some orange ones.

If you already made these, or have some ideas of your own, bring them on the table during the online workshop tulip making!

 

When there still is time we can also make an origami tulip. For this you need to square papers of the same size.

As this is mainly my way to connect with you, this will also be your chance to ask questions about Holland & typical Dutch stuff!

I will be going live on Facebook  on

Good Friday April 10  3:30 PM Amsterdam time (CEST) - 

And we'll be doing a Zoom session on

King's Day April 27 5:30 PM Amsterdam time (CEST)  -

Flower Parade Netherlands 2021 - When & Where

In spring it's time for the Flower Parade Netherlands 2021. The name in Dutch is Bloemencorso Bollenstreek.  The flower decorated floats follow a route around Keukenhof. In this post you read when the Bulb Flower Parade takes place and where you can watch it.

When does the spring flower parade Netherlands 2021 take place?

The Dutch love to celebrate flowers and color. There are many Dutch flower parades and fortunately they all take place at a different time. Every season has its own flower. The Zundert Flower Parade Netherlands 2021 takes place at the end of summer. Dahlias bloom from August till far into the autumn season. These make the perfect flowers for the Corso in Zundert.

Mid-April the tulips and hyacinths bloom. Tulips are quite fragile and you won't see them that often in the Bloemencorso Bollenstreek. The hyacinths are much firmer. Besides, they can be used in different ways. You can use a full flower with stem or just a single petal as you can see in this post.

In 2021 you can view the famous street parade of the Flower Parade Bulb Region on   Saturday 17 April 2021. 18 floats decorated with spring flowers will be participating in the flower procession this year.

Verita goes behind the scenes of the flower parade from Wednesday 14 April till Friday 16 April 2021. On Friday afternoon there's a special bike tour to the evening flower parade.  Want to join her on a cycle tour or just for a visit behind the scenes?   Contact  Verita's Visit Holland for more information.

Where can I see the Bulb Flower Parade Netherlands 2021?

My tip of the day: go see this evening flower parade on Friday 16 April.  It's amazing and not so crowded. The nicely scented and colorfully decorated floats leave the huge hall around 2 PM. They head for Noordwijkerhout. In this cosy town they start the party at noon.

On Saturday morning 17 April around 9:30 AM the bulb flower parade starts in Noordwijk. It follows a route through the flower villages Voorhout, Sassenheim, Lisse, Hillegom, Bennebroek, Heemstede. At 21:30 the spring flower parade Netherlands 2021 ends in Haarlem.

On Sunday 18 April you can see the floats displayed on the market square of Haarlem.

Want to know where to go exactly?  Or looking for more info on the full route & timings?

In 2022 the Bulb Flower Parade will take place in the week of 18 April.

The end of the tulip season is never a happy one. The sight of the sea of colours brings so much joy and happiness. Once the tulips are gone, what is there to look forward to? Well, dahlias! You could call them the summer tulips. Just like tulips they're bulb flowers, they're amazingly colourful, with lots of varieties and there are fields full of them. Here's an photo impression of the dahlia show garden near Keukenhof. Read more
