Curly Willow Branches

  Recently, I discovered the beauty of curly willow branches and added them to the olive branches that I cut straight from the olive trees on our property, filling this urn in our living room in the wine country.

I'm always looking for something long lasting to fill the urn and add drama to the living room, which can be a challenge.

Curly willow and olive branches are perfect!

  
Not only does the greenery brings life to the room, but I don't have to worry about watering.
Curly willow will sprout little green leaves and roots when left in water, but I noticed that after being away for a few weeks, the water evaporated and the branches dried naturally.
I'm loving this large, organic and natural look in Asti for fall so much that I may not replace it for a while!

I love curly willow, Delores! I planted a couple in my yard many years ago to use cuttings in my decor. So pretty.

Love it D!! Perfect presentations. I have a curly willow tree behind my fence and we cut and pick up limbs all the time and use them in arrangements. In fact I did last year for Christmas in my entry hall with white frosty ornaments hanging off of them. They are so architectural and interesting. Love the mix you used with the olive tree limbs, Beautiful,
Happy Monday,

love the branches and it was neat to get a bit of different view of this room into the hall. (plus the cute couch puppy lol)

I have actually planted these rooted branches and provided myself a supply of more branches! I just love them, both fresh and dried. Good post.

I really like your olive and curly willow arrangement. Will the olive branches hold their leaves for a while, or will you have to replace them? Love using greenery in the house, especially at Christmas.
