Life's a Birch (Silver that is!)

Life’s a Birch

The natural papery, shimmery bark of a silver birch tree is perfect for decorating a venue, in fact its so decorative that it can be used bare, either as trees or even just trunks. Birch is ideal for every season with its full foliage in Spring and Summer, bare branches in Autumn and can be sprayed in white or pearlescent paint for a Winter wedding. Not only are these trees a classic, its so easy to create a contemporary feel with a few well shout out touches.

Silver Birch Styling

Due to their delicate branches and foliage, silver birch are ideal to use in number as they do not overpower the venue, whether its a bar wedding, country house wedding or a marquee. They can be dotted around the room to add a floaty, outdoor feel that’s not overpowering, particularly great in a marquee. The trees themselves are versatile in that they can be tall and thin with branches from almost the base or have long slender trunks and a round canopy of branches at the uppermost point. If your venue just isn’t right for this kind of styling, what about a silver birch wall of trees as a backdrop. Very fashionable at the moment are the silver birch trunks in containers, these add a very stylish look at a more contemporary wedding or event.

Sharp Dressed Man

Whilst some grooms or brides may not be able to get excited when it comes to all wedding things ‘fluffy’, we know from experience at Trees by Design that men especially just love a tree and usually the bigger the better! I think this is where the silver birch comes into it’s own in that it isn’t ‘blousy’ and full on, in fact it’s the opposite, it has confidence, its understated and yet stylish. Like a sharp dressed man!

The Décor for our event on Friday was amazing; your colleagues were lovely and made the room look amazing, thank you so much.

Trees by Design were an absolute delight to work with. Their hard work was hugely appreciated by all of the team. They worked throughout the day in extremely cold and windy conditions in order to get the job done. With no complaints at all! The trees looked incredible and guests commented throughout the night on the very beautiful entrance to the party.’

We would like to express our sincere gratitude to Claire and Tracey for making our wedding reception that much more amazing with their fantastic decorations. From our initial email exchanges and our visit to their warehouse, it was clear that they were the ideal people to make my dreams come true. They truly made our night extra special with their beautiful natural trees. The trees received constant compliments throughout the night and after too. They really were amazing! We would highly recommend Trees by Design to any couple that want a stress free and reliable service to provide stunning décor.
