Everyone loves orchids! Many of us enjoy small plants in our homes, which we may have purchased for a modest price while grocery shopping. We also see them, of course, in stunning wedding bouquets and mothers’ corsages.
Lately, though, we are seeing Curly Willow branches and Manzanita trees decorated with orchids at wedding receptions. These dazzling displays are used as centerpieces, on the escort/table card table or at the entrance to set the tone for a spectacular wedding reception.
You may be wondering how an orchid tree is created. Basically, it consists of orchids glued to Curly Willow branches or a Manzanita tree. If you want to make one or more yourself, it is a do-able DIY project. You can get the both these items from Koyal Wholesale.
If you do want to try making one yourself, florists say that they try to wait until the day of the wedding to glue the blooms, so they will remain fresh throughout the reception. They also suggest the option of putting each bloom in a water tube, which is then covered with moss or a Galax leaf. The Dendrobium orchid is the one most often used and the price can vary greatly depending on your own locale and, of course, how many blooms you use.
We have been seeing a lot of photos of Orchid Trees on Pinterest and we have an Orchid Trees for Wedding Receptions board devoted to this growing trend. We want to share some of the gorgeous designs with you here to give you ideas for own wedding.
