how to: create a branch centerpiece

Entertaining season will be here soon so it’s time to get ready. By hanging a centerpiece over— instead of adding clutter to—the dining table, ample room is left for a clean modern table and unobstructed brunch to dinner conversations.

Select a branch sized to suit your dining space, paint for a high-gloss effect, and add colorful ornaments to trim your ‘tree’. To hang, use natural twine—or extra strong fish-line for a floating effect.

hint: consult a hardware store for the best advice on hanging hardware.
