Lately I’ve been totally digging the idea of swapping out a fresh flowers for big, dramatic tree branches. Maybe it’s the autumn colors and falling leaves that are everywhere right now but branches just feel so fresh and sculptural. Kind of like the statement necklace of floral arrangements.
So yesterday when the hubs and I went hiking, I came prepared with clompers in tow. I have a moderate obsession with anything orange so this stunning maple was right up my alley. Anchored by some river rocks, it’s exactly the look I’ve been coveting this fall. Pretty fabulous, right?
The great thing about branches is that you can swap them out with the seasons and they can be totally free, depending on where you live. If you’ve got a yard, trimming those overgrown branches will suddenly be a lot more fun. I like them on mantles, in entry ways or on dining tables like these gorgeous ideas below – anywhere that you’re looking to make a major statement and you’ve got the height to pull it off.
