About 2 months ago myself, my sister, Sister in law and my mom were all shopping and we decided to stop into Crate and Barrel. I was really surprised to see piles of Birch limbs and Birch Branches FOR SALE! they made darling decoration but there was no way I would spend $30.00 on 3 – YES only 3 branches! So fast forward a few weeks later when I am up at my mom’s house in Idaho and she tells me she had to cut down her beloved Birch tree because it died after many many many years.

Yep! You know me and how my mind works. My mother and myself gathered handfuls of branches and set to work in her garage cutting down the branches into smaller sections because we were going to use these babies to decorate with! (thank goodness for saws!)

Within minutes we had bundles of Birch Branches! I was so excited to decorate with them. Doing a few different lengths gave us a variety. Here is how my mother decided to display her’s!

They sit nestled in a wire basket on the bottom shelf on her buffet in her dining room. Such a classy addition to home decor. In conclusion if you ever happen to see a Birch tree being cut down or one that is dying don’t spend the money to buy these branches. Simply stop and ask the person cutting down the tree if you can have some branches! Because I am sure they will have more wood then they know what to do with! There is no harm in asking right?
