Wishing Tree Ideas
Posted: Apr 3, 2008 12:06 AM

Can you please post pictures of how you did your wishing tree?  My theme is asian inspired, so I am thinking of simple branches in a glass vase with river rocks.  On either side of the tree would be wooden trays filled with river rocks.  Nestled in between the rocks would be pieces of paper with everyone's names and tables on them.  The paper would be chiyogami- the same paper used to create the invitations- and have a ribbon attached to one end.  The paper would then have a dual use- as a place card and as a piece of paper to write wishes on and hang on the tree.  What do you think?

That's a great idea! Manzanita is what's typically used, but we made a much more functional tree (and much less expensive one) using Kuwa Branches, cable ties and paper clips.


Here's the original post - http://nettletonhollow.blogspot.com/2008/03/wedding-card-trees-take-two.html and here's a related follow-up post - http://nettletonhollow.blogspot.com/2008/05/hanging-floral-tubes.html . We also made one a while back using birch branches - http://nettletonhollow.blogspot.com/2007/06/card-trees-wish-trees.html . We skipped the ribbon and decided to use paper-clips instead because they'd be MUCH easier for people to use.

Manzanita Branches are the best branches for wishing trees. And they are perfect for Asian inspired weddings because they can be made to look like cherry blossom trees. NaturalDecorDesign.com has the best selection, price, and quality of manzanita branches.
