I’m not a fan of the tissue paper. Im not sure what else you could use tho :/

Edit- I should add that I like EVERYTHING but the tissue paper, I think the suggestion for solid paper might look better or maybe the shiny non paper tissue paper? Not sure what your colors/ theme is tho so i dono if that would work.

What do the little tags say?

 

Its really cute though!! I have to agree with mishelleez about the tissue paper, maybe even a solild brighter colour of tissue paper would look better?

I’m with the other ladies on the tissue paper. Maybe you can use more of those crystal beads at the bottom to fill the vase. I’m sure that would make the limbs secure also.

Personally I would loose the tissue paper (as others said) and I would loose the blue tags. The tags makes it look more like a “wish tree” or some sort of guestbook.

In this case I think simplicity will give you a clean, classic, and more sophisticated look.

I like the tissue paper and think it’s very different from most branch centerpieces. I don’t care for the tags or the butterflies,tho. I’d keep the tissue and use just the plain crystals (do you have a lot of them?) and keep it more simple.

Are you having favors? Use the blue tags as thank you cards…..

Im not a fan of the tissue paper either but i love the butterflies. We did something similar with paper flowers and birds. At the base we put moss and a bird. Maybe you could do something similar. Here’s a pic of ours, unfortunatly noone got a great pic of ours they looked really impressive in person.

If you switched to a non clear container you could use a mixture of spray foam and rocks. It works great and is cheap.

I like these as they are simple. Too much stuff on them is too distracting. I always think less is more.

I just saw one with branches where they just used dirt…pretty ‘natural’! (and cheap and easy too)

These look nice in the clear glass too.

Yes they are mine!! 🙂

What about doing cement and then wrapping ribbon around the outside of the vase to cover the cement? You would need that much to hold the tree up if you use cement.

I put ribbon at the top of my vase with double sided tape. Where the ribbon  meets i covered it with a sticker that had the ltter “G” on it.
