My very good friend and fellow Philadelphia Wedding Planner, Meredith Sellers Tomasulo of Elegant Engagements shared a find with me that I couldn't WAIT to share! If you have considered creating the hanging votive tree for your centerpieces, entrance table or ANYWHERE else in your reception space, boy will you be relieved! Ballard Designs, which I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE is offering a Twig Votive Tree for a steal price of $60, that is a close replica to it's Manzanita branch counterpart.
If you are not familiar with the Manzanita branch and you are considering creating the hanging votive tree, believe me, you and the Manzanita will become one. For hanging votives, Manzanitas work best because of their stiff rich bark and twisting branches, which are perfect for supporting the weight of the votive candle/holder. Manzanitas tend to be on the "pricey" side however, so if you are looking to save a little bit of money, the right type of curly willow will also do the trick. But now, thanks to Ballard, you have an alternative solution to acheive a similar look. How sweet is that?
