Decorating With Birch And Wood

Birch and wood add a rustic elegance to event spaces, whether for outdoor or winter weddings, al-fresco dinner parties, or engagement parties. With their unique shapes and textures, use them to demonstrate the beauty that harmony with nature brings.

1. Wild Bunch
Aim high with sprawling arrangements of artificial flowers that reach to the sky. “I was actually inspired by your fir wood bowl. The simplicity of its shape, the organic and unfinished feel of the wood suggested some kind of green wildness growing out of a fallen tree trunk, like one would see in the forest.” – Peter M. Krask.

Give bunches of flowers a freshly picked look by placing them in aged pine wood flower boxes. Stick with same-colored flowers like these carnations for a more modern statement, or go with a mix of wildflowers for a touch of uninhibited natural beauty.
