Did anyone use (or is anyone currently planning to use) manzanita branches for their centerpieces? What height branches seemed to work? I love the dramatic look and the different embellishments (hanging votives, crystals, etc), but I’m concerned that the height will impede conversation across the table.
If you have pictures of your manzanita centerpices, I’d love to see them, too!

Sure did and I LOVED the way they turned out:)

Beautiful! Did you make them yourself? Where did you get your branches?

@lizzybeth5807: I did make them myself (well with the help of my girlfriends). I ordered the branches from wholesale flowers and direct. And the vases were from a website too (I can’t remember the name). Then we used water bead, glitter, and the hanging jewels and flowers we glued on. All in all everything cost about $350 for 15 centerpieces to make. And about 4 hours.

@lizzybeth5807: I am doing them! I got 36″ branches, and am putting them inside of an aspen trunk that I hollowed out to be a vase. So that the bushy part of the branch will be above eye level. Then I am hanging jars with fake tea lights in them. I am using frosted glass votives though so you won’t know they are fake. I just thought it seems dangerous hanging fire in dry wood…

I really want to use Manzanita branches as well… I have also been thinking about the logistics of it. So do we have to buy them ourselves and set it all up ourselves or is it something our florist may be able to provide? I havent talked to mine yet, I was just wondering…

Here are mine! I think they were 24-36 inch branches? Didn’t impede conversation at all!
