Flowering branches have taken over the architectural floral designs of many occasions. With more brides and grooms welcoming the natural look of “green” elements to their centerpieces, parties and engagements never looked more sophisticated. Adding height and drama in the form of unique floral trees that reach upward to the ceiling tent, and sky, couples with any style or formality of wedding bring a big dose of wow factor to their traditional centerpieces—or they make these architectural items the sole items in their centerpieces.
In most cases, these accents can be a bit more expensive. When there is a wealth of cherry and apple blossoms, you’ll pay a fraction of what the usual flower-filled centerpiece would cost. And outside of spring, you can have flowering and exotic branches imported at prices that are still friendly to the wallet. Your floral designer or an in-the-know gardener friend may have to force the blooms on these branches by following a series of steps, including putting the stems in hot water, cutting them repeatedly, and placing them in the cooler. But the efforts are worth it when you produce height, texture, and pretty florals for your architectural centerpieces.
