    I think if you added some flowers or “filler” to them they’d look really nice.

    you have inspired me to make my own branch centerpieces!  $100 for a centerpiece?  you must be joking.  i’m about to just go cut some branches off trees in the backyard. i mean, seriously. but i do love birch branches.  too bad i don’t have one of those growing in the yard.

    I bought twisted willow to do a christmas tree a few years back. I bought it when it was still green which allowed me to twist it into squiggles and make it curly and easy to hang ornaments from. Obviously you have to let it dry out b4 u hang them. Org with your florest to get it when it is still green, twist it into desired shape and let it dry out then u are ready to start adding to it.

    I’m doing curly willow centerpieces and this is what my florist suggested to us which was really helpful: put a few hydrangeas around the top of the vase where the curly willow comes out. then sprinkle the branches with candles and/or a couple of dendrobium orchids (just a few, so that the willows aren’t SO dark) and then place candles around the centerpiece to give some more light.

    I love this idea and think you’ve just convinced me that I must use something similar for my centerpieces.  I like the 3rd option.

    Gorgeous!!!!
    I’m personally a fan of hte combination of 3 and 4. Slightly more spread out like 4, with more floral impact like 3.
