Branch and Butterfly Spring Table Setting and Centerpiece
This whimsical centerpiece is perfect for spring-inspired dinner parties and is surprisingly simple to create. "I gathered several manzanita branches into a tall vase to bring the outdoors in. These gorgeous branches, with their twists and curls, make such a dramatic statement on a tabletop," Katie Riley of Centsational Girl says. You can even replace the butterflies with seasonal objects, like leaves or snowflakes, for a gorgeous centerpiece to celebrate any holiday or season.
Birch branches are great for adding height to an area and also creating a more architectural look. For a masculine approach to holiday decorating, combine birch branches with cedar and pine cuttings in a rustic vessel or ice bucket. Here, a vintage camping container adds a touch of woodsy plaid to the organic arrangement.
Olive branches add a unique texture to floral arrangements with bunches of long, slender leaves.
Robin on Branch
As leaves fall from trees, it’s a great time to do a little birdwatching. Many botanic gardens and nature reserves offer birdwatching outings in fall. Search state park listings online to learn about opportunities in your area.
Branch Displayed as Art
In the corner, a spindly tree branch offers an organic display of shape and lines against the stark white walls. A sculptural cage supports the limb, adding more lines to the mix.
Often you’ll spot fungus growing on a tree branch. Usually this type of fungus indicates dead wood. Prune to remove that dead growth while the tree is dormant.
Ice On Tree Branch
Before ice arrives, search out the best ice melt for your situation. Salt products with sodium chloride can harm plants and concrete. Potassium chloride is less harmful. Calcium chloride is the top choice for effective ice melting with no harm to plants or surfaces. Some gardeners use urea fertilizers, which melt ice and won’t harm plants or concrete. It only works with temps above 11°F, so its usefulness is somewhat limited in coldest zones.
Hand Pruning a Branch
Pruning is a necessary chose to keep plants healthy.
A remarkable partition in this bathroom is made from slim branches, the shadows they cast almost as intriguing as the wall itself. The look is continued via two white branch arrangements on either side of the sink.
Sheer draperies topped with strands of mirror tiles provide a lovely backdrop for this modern winter vignette. HGTV fan nyclq placed a single glittered branch in a tall clear vase to create visual impact while complementing the room's minimal look.
