I want to have a wishing tree.  The ornaments sound beautiful.

That does sound beautiful – thank you for the tip! 

For brides doing a wish tree, do you have any helpful suggestions for its construction?  I was going to enlist the help of my dad, and start with birch branches (less expensive than manzanita), foam, and Plaster of Paris (or concrete).  I also thought of getting a shorter (maybe 4 foot) white Christmas tree, but then thought maybe it was TOO Christmas-y (for an April wedding!) looking and perhaps not the best for hanging wish cards on.

Any ideas or suggestions are welcome!

I had a wish tree and my sister constructed it. She found inexpensive manzanita branches online at…Hobby Lobby I think. They weren’t very tall (and they didn’t need to be, either). She used florists foam at the bottom of a square glass vase, and then filled it with those craft bead things (I can never remember the proper name for them, but I think you know what I mean) and some swarovski crystals and other beads for stability. Then she used strung beads and pretty wire to decorate it.

Here’s a guest picture:

We used ornament hooks to put the wishes on the tree.
I think it turned out pretty well.

I bought a wishing tree kit from bloomsandbranches.com the kit was $48.95 and including 5 branches and 2 boxes to put them in. I had Fiance screw the two bottom boxes together and I wrapped them in gold ribbon so they looked like one unit.

I then ordered a box of 250 free business cards from vistaprint.com (I actually paid $8 to have the back side printed). I then punched holes in them and tied them with white ribbon. I bought strands of crystals from the Christmas tree shop. The whole project cost me $67 bucks.
