ooh those are very pretty indeed. I almost did tree branches as my centerpieces until I found birdcages that worked really well..

I’m not sure what kind they are but I’ll keep an eye out.

They look like Birch maybe but I can’t tell if they’re just painted or if that’s they’re natural coloring it’s not close enought to really tell. Just a guess. It also looks like they’re flocked or have moss or something.

I agree with cricket – it looks like the branches have some kind of fuzzy/mossy covering that makes them look thicker – are you sure they are real branches? I dont know of any that just look this way when they grow…

it might be worth checking if you have an arboretum somewhere near where you live – someone there might be more helpful in identifying branches~

The thicker branches do look nice (and if youre gathering your own branches, you could just look for/cut larger ones), just be sure your vases are able to safely hold such thick branches without tipping!

I thought birch were white? We have birch trees in our backyard which are white and brown. Birch branches would be really gorgeous too @amanda. 

Oh, I do love birdcages! are theme is vintage and birds, so we embossed birds on our invites and are using a lot of bird decor. I got mini birdcages from Michaels that were half off in their clearance section, so I got 12 for only $5 a piece! score ๐Ÿ™‚ and the dollar tree where I live had ceramic birds for only $1. Cheap centerpieces that definitely don’t look cheap!

Oh, and I wholeheartedly agree! I wish I could have three weddings to do differently everytime…but with the same guy ๐Ÿ™‚

I think they’re birch branches with lichen.  Very pretty inspiration!

Anyone know the best place to purchase birch branches that have been painted white?
