Decorative Branches

Manzanita is a great choice for events, however Birch can also be used in many wonderful ways! There are lots of sizes available, take a look here. If you are an event planner and are looking for bulk quantities of decorative branches, take a look here.

Creating a Base For Your Tree

Several of you have been asking how to create a base for your Manzanita wedding tree or Manzanita centerpieces. As promised in an earlier post, here are some step-by-step instructions with photos.  Materials are fairly inexpensive, however if you need to purchase bulk quantities, (25 to 60 tables for example), let us know and we'll put together the materials for you with a shipping quote. In the future, we plan to offer the basic supplies for sale on bloomsandbranches.com, and we may even put together a kit which includes branches! 🙂

Wedding Wish Tree

Here's a photo of a Manzanita Wish Tree, which takes the place of guest book. Beautiful alternative! Seating card trees and wish trees are simple to create! In this example, use two pieces of 18" natural manzanta that are wired together. The crystal beads can be found at a craft store and strung together using monofiliment. .
