We’re in love: Decorative twigs with delicate buds that transform into magical beauties in a short time are our favorites for spring. Whether as an Easter bush or a fancy table decoration – almond tree, magnolia or cherry blossom branches are extraordinary alternatives to the usual bouquet. We introduce you to our favorites on the topic of “decorative branch”.
Almond tree branches as a decorative branch
Vincent van Gogh was already fascinated by the fine beauty of these decorative branches. In 1890 the artist painted his famous “Blossoming Almond Tree Branches”. Today the work hangs in the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. But you can also turn real twigs into a work of art, for example as a table decoration for the Easter brunch. Tip: Always place woody stems in warm water and don’t forget to cut the stem regularly when changing the water.
Cherry blossom branches as a decorative branch
In Japan, the cherry blossom symbolizes beauty, new beginnings, but also transience. Its flowering time marks a real highlight in the calendar, because it heralds spring. The delicate twigs beautify every corner of the house in no time at all. In the entrance area on a console they are a light, springtime greeting. Tip: Cherry blossom branches and hyacinths make a great pair, which you arrange in a vase or in a glass with the roots.
Magnolia branches as a decorative branch
There are over 220 species, but they all have one thing in common: their graceful beauty! The magnolia plants, which originate from East Asia and America, are also ideal as statement decoration in our regions, which attracts everyone’s attention. Often referred to as the queen of the woods, the magnolia lives up to its reputation – as on this antique table. Here she is enthroned in all its beauty and almost looks a bit proud. Styling tip: This beauty deserves a pretty crystal vase.
