I love this idea! Beautiful!

My Blessed Serendipity Life

Very cute and springy idea.



What a creative idea! Yours is wonderful!


Hi Andrea! Oh, no, I don't know that recipe about the beans. Just the names sounds great.
Love what you've done with the real branches and little faux blooms!
Thanks for popping in to see me and be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)


What a grand idea....i have made tissue flowers to add to outdoor branches but this idea would be so much easier. Your home looks lovely

Your blog is lovely...happy day to you.


I actually like yours better!! Good job!


Great idea. They really do look realistic. And saved you a bazillion dollars over PB.

Hi Andrea, Your blooms look wonderful and as good as PB version. Thank you for sharing your cute project at my party.

Well done. It is crazy to pay those prices. I love the yellow flowers.


Hi Andrea...

Oooh...what a sweet project, my friend! I love how your pretty yellow bloomed branches turned out! They look sooo pretty and definitely the star of that springtime vignette! Of course, I do have to say that I just adore your sweet little bunny! Hehe! I seen the pretty blooming branches at PB...can you believe that they cost THAT much? Eeeks! Like you said...that is a car payment...totally crazy! I think your branches are just as pretty! What a creative lady you are! Thanks for sharing your spring vignette and awesome project with us!

Warmest spring wishes,
Chari @Happy To Design

I think it looks fantastic, Andrea! You could always do a big pot like you did that inspired me with the seashells on mine!


what a wonderful way to save money and get a great look. Sure would be handy to do this for an out doors wedding if you need to set a lot of tables..you get real branches from nature along with some faux flowers to have the look that will last for days..
Very creative..I'm going to follow you as I like your style...

What a gorgeous vignette.Spring truly has sprung!

Have a lovely weekend!


Andrea! I love your branches...dare I say I like them more than Pottery Barns. I like that yours are not so "froofy" and I adore the yellow! Thank you for sharing them with us at Inspiration Friday, and for always leaving us a sweet party comment. We love when someone takes the time to leave a comment when linking up, it makes our day! Have a beautiful weekend!



Oh Andrea! I think yours are as pretty as Pottery Barn's. These turned out beautiful! I love the thinking outside the box on this. I have always wanted flowering quince. I might try this and see it it turns out this stunning. Very pretty! Thanks for linking up!


"Simple and Fun"....my kind of craft project! :-) It looks just lovely and we are so glad you linked this up to Inspiration Friday this week!


Hi there Andrea~ Your branches are just lovely! I love the yellow and think they are absolutely charming!! Sharing this on FB~ Thanks for sharing at FNF! :)


Your branches are awesome!


Hi Andrea -- I don't live far from you considering -- down in Alexandria, LA -- I do love what you did with the branches. I often do the same thing. I really don't care of a bunch of silk or artificial flowers; I seem to stick with the dried version of real plants; but using real branches as an anchor so to speak, sure can add mother nature to those flowers -- they really look good. I'm dying to try this with some of Martha Stewart's cherry blossom paper patterns and dogwood. A lot of cutting, but it looks so good. Thanks for the tip -- much faster and easier and less costly than Martha. Terri www.morningdewdrops.typepad.com


What a great idea for a spring table or arrangement! :)


Shannon Olson

this is a great look, I have been seeing it and it is perfect for places like ND where things take forever to get blooming!


Hello girl...love this idea....I have some free branches out back on an old tree we cut down! Your's turned out beautiful...and I love the old window frame in the other post and your toile...ohhhhh myyyy word!!!!! I love toile! I so loved my visit here...hope you are having a great week....Picket

Donna at Mourning Dove Cottage

Your fancy branches are wonderful! I love this idea.


Pretty, pretty!! I am really looking forward to school being out so I can have time to play like that. :)


Oh my gosh! What a great idea. I would have *never* thought of making this, but it seems like the perfect solution since they'll never wilt and never lose their blossoms!! So creative! :) I love your blog and will be back again! ~Stephanie from Buttermilk Hill


Oh I LOVE this idea! I have never tried it and yours just look so great!! I will be out trying it for sure! Thanks for stopping by!!


My son (who lives in Mesquite) told me about the storm.. He said it was quite ugly. Love what you did and what a great idea.. Yours are every bit as pretty as pb's!
