    I’m planning on doing branches but we won’t have them on every table. I’m planning on six tables having branches and 7 having the smaller centerpiece. I love how they look. I bought a small branch and then filled it with curly willow to keep the cost down. I anchored mine in a floral square and moss and a tall vase. So far it’s still standing just fine in my living room. Good luck!

    I love branch centerpieces! We’re incorporating them with flowers to give some height and flow, but I’ve seen great pictures of just branches, some with flower blooms (orchids) tied to certain brances and they look gorgeous!

    @Kimberly1010: Sorry about my delay. He said we could just pick up branches outside and put them in a vase and be done. My Fiance thinks the idea is stupid…lol. He is a guy but I decided since I got to pick almost everything else out I would relent on the issue.

    I’m going to put a small branch in my centerpiece with a few cotton bolls glued on it…  Imagine something like those below, but in a mason jar with a handful of wildflowers.

    I made manzanita centerpieces for my son’s wedidng this Saturday!  I put the branches into a clear plastic food container from a party supply store with redi-mix cement.  I am then going to place these inside pretty antique looking ceramic urns that I got from a flea market and cover the top with Spanish moss. I hot glued white silk hydrangea blossoms in the branches and will hanging 5 votives with the battery operated votive candles.  Don’t use real candles!  Even if you hang the votives with little chains, the branches get hot above and eventually start to burn.  I am going to use real votive candles on the table around the arrangement.

    @Kimberly1010:

     

    Was the $85 quote per centerpiece?  I am thinking of doing branches as well and am also in NYC but not sure what the pricing would be.
