If you’ve been reading my blog for any length of time you’ll know that one of my favorite decorating items is my branch that hangs on the wall in my living room. I got the inspiration from a magazine article, then saw an awesome “decorator branch” at a Mexican restaurant in Bisbee, AZ.
I couldn’t wait to start my search! I was determined that I wouldn’t cut it off of a tree, but that I’d find it somewhere naturally. It took almost 9 months, but finally I found the perfect Manzanita branch laying on the ground on a hike in Sedona, AZ. You can see the full story here.
So, ever since then I have thoroughly enjoyed finding new and fun ways to decorate this piece. Sometimes its seasonal, like this closeup of one of my winter branches.
And sometimes it revolves around an event. (We had photos of my mother-in-law hanging up when we celebrated her 75th birthday.)
Or you may have seen in a recent post where I hung these vintage reproduction postcards there in the summer.
This is what it looks like for the Fall season. Novel idea, huh? To hang leaves on a branch. If you live in a part of the country that actually has an ample supply of fall leaves you can just bring them in from the outside. For those of us who live in the desert, we have to buy silk leaves to hang up.
Just one of the many dozens of ideas for things to do when decorating a simple branch on your wall. I usually don’t have much trouble in the Fall and Winter, but what would be your ideas for decorating it in the Spring and Summer?
