So I found this great sight for willow branches... (http://www.pinecones.com/prod.html) stem tips for 100.00, but looking around, I love the manzanita, here are a few pics, what do you think- should I go with the willow stems or the manzanita, the only problem I have with the manzanita is that I don't know if the actual branches will look like the one pictured. The guy is super nice and I could proably ask him, but I haven't.

 (Manzanita Branches with Leaves or Bare-Branched:
14" - 30"     25 pieces: $60     50 pieces: $100

Curly Willow Tips: 4 ft.Sienna (shown), natural, 50/pc @ $6 (Case:20 / $100) (1000 pieces for 100 dollars!!!!!) They Will prolly look like this:

Curly Willow 4': Basil, Walnut, 6 stems $5.50 (Case:150 pieces/$125) (I am just going for the tips... but if you are interested)


They also have these really cute things for a really good price. I am not using them, but they are just so cute I briefly thought about using them for my wedding, but stopped myself!: (thought someone might be interested)

Skeletal Leaves 2" x 2" and 6" x 8": Bleached, Green, 2" x 2" 100 pieces $4.25 (Case:24 pkg/$95)  (2400 leaves for 95 bucks!) They sell the leaves at Michaels for that price for like 5 leaves!
 6" x 8" 100 pieces $6.00 (Case:24 pkg/$135) (Horrible pic, go to the website)
 and

Bird Nest w/moss: 3.5" 1pc @ $2.25 (Case: 24 / $48)




They have all kinds of things from rocks to pinecones.

I was searching for a website like this today! I am thinking about using branches too.  I really really like the first one.  Smiley

The manzanita is gorgeous, and yeah, they should all look something like that.  But, the curly willow is a (much) better price and it always looks nice.  I guess it will depend on your budget and how many you need.

Well, I am only going to do 12 vases of the branches, so budget wise, I could do either, but I think I am leaning towards the manzanita.
