Flowering Crabapple Branches

A friend gifted me these flowering branches from the prettiest crabapple tree growing in her front yard.  Although spring has come and gone, I decided to share the way the branches accented my home.

 I displayed them in a farmhouse-style vase from Target, creating a tall centerpiece.

I enjoyed the added interest to my kitchen.

 The branches lasted eight days, by changing the water regularly.  As the flowers lost their petals, the dried blooms created a natural confetti.  My kids teased that we were living in a forest! Ha!

  I love decorating with natural elements.

 White, yellow, green and shades of pink create a fresh color palette.

 I hope this inspires you to bring the outdoors in.


  1. Don't we all need to be reminded of the newness of spring, particularly as a new season approaches? They are lovely as is your pottery they are stored in, the table it sits on, and your kitchen. I love your blog and seeing the serenity of your home.

  2. This is so beautiful and the vase is the perfect for the branches.

  3. Just beautiful Brandi. These grow wild here in Michigan in the Springtime. I will have to remember t bring some inside next year. TFS Janice

  4. They look perfect in your kitchen. I love flowering trees. I wish they would invent a tree that flowers all thu the spring and summer. I ordered a weeping cherry tree. It's been too hot to ship it, so I'm waiting. can't wait to see it in my yard and in my house in a nice vase just like yours!
