Manzanita branches are so versatile. When we were getting married I wanted our centerpieces to be like the photo above. Unfortunately it was too expensive to ship manzanita branches to Mexico. I did have our wedding coordinator try it out with regular branches but it didn't look the same. We ended up with a grouping of white pillar candles and orchids sprinkles around them. It was simple, I was in love and I was holding a margarita. Perfect. But I'm still itching to do something with manzanita branches.
When I was searching the Apartment Therapy archives I came across this centerpiece. Isn't it gorgeous?
I'm considering making one and hanging it above my fireplace. At Christmas I'll replace the birds with ornaments. See? Versatile.
Married three years ago, I've failed to move on to the next stage of my life. Children? 401K? I'd rather join the congo line on your big day. I love all things weddings and parties and hope to make a life of it someday.
In my spare time I like to hike, go to the beach and discover new restaurants. I live in the Seattle area with my Husband, two crazy dogs and my wedding dress ;)
