Decorating Ideas With Tree Branches
I love taking walks during each season to find beautiful branches I can clip to make a pretty arrangement. Whether it be Spring or Fall each season has something beautiful. Spring is a great time to look for different kinds of trees with blossoms. Many of the flowers on these trees that are blooming in coastal South Carolina are from indigenous trees such as these in this post.
Supplies For Decorating Ideas With Tree Branches
- Gloves: Make sure you wear them when handling plants that you find outside.
- Clipper: Bring a sharp clipper to help cut any branches you may find whether it be on the ground or in a tree.
- Bug Spray: If it’s during the Sumer months bugs are pretty active then. Spray your hand legs and arms to protect from bites.
- Long Pants: Make sure you wear long pants if you are going in the woods to find branches. Ticks are pretty common in the woods/
- Vases: Wider mouth vases are great for a bunch of branches with flowers. If you like jar vases, these have smaller mouths and accommodate one or two branches for a minimal look.

I grew up on a Apple farm so my mom always had Apple blossoms in a vase somewhere in our home. We also had cherry, plum and pear trees that were a similar bloom.
