As much as I love using flowers in my home, I also love using branches. I like the texture they bring to a space and the unique shape they have. Best of all, I can go outside and pick them right out of my own yard. We have a lot of trees in my yard, so branches are plentiful.
I wanted to share some inspiration pics as well. There are a lot of great ways to use them.
Don't they make a statement?!
So, I set off to do the same in my home in my dining room. I brought up an urn from my basement and filled it with some oasis. I used some curly willow branches mixed in with some from my own yard and arranged them in the oasis. Then I covered the base with spanish moss.
The good thing about this kind of project, is that it doesn't have to be perfect. Branches on trees aren't, so mine don't have to be either.
It's just another way to add texture and interest to a room.
So, next time you're picking up twigs etc from your yard after a storm, don't throw them out so quickly. If they have an interesting shape. Save them and make a branch arrangement of your own!
Thanks for stopping by!
