Love the tree trunk idea!  I had never thought about it before but I am going to incorporate it into my reception – AND it gives Dad something to do with his chainsaw!

I have some questions about the tree trunk centerpieces. How long did they last after the gloss coats and such? Also, did you have to glue the bark back on? I REALLY want to do this for my wedding but I didn’t know how it all worked out! And how many coats did you do?

We’re using wood slices from my FI’s sister’s ranch for our centerpieces, as well as for our cake / cupcake stands.

Would you really nead the clear coat? it seems excessive to me, you can’t use it as firewood afterwards then becuase it has varnish on it. right?

I am using tree trunks at my reception as part of the centerpieces.  I have posted a picture of my cake topper that is a wire tree. I am also considering tree seedlings as party favors.

I love this idea. I plan on having my having my cousin and father make me both a cake stand and a cup cake stand with three layers. I also want accents of wood through out the ceremony and reception such as: Tree trunks one on either side of the wedding archway to place large floral arrangements on, wood table number holders, and thin round wood place cards with calligraphy.

@Stevie.Brooks:  Hi Stevie, Your pictures are lovely!  I’d love to try the tree disc idea. Do you have any step-by-step instructions on how to use the polyurethane and gloss (order, how many coats)?  Do you know if you can write in sharpie on them easily afterwards or does that have to be done before?  Thanks!!!
