Below are some pictures of a centerpiece made with our Project Grade 24-36" Natural Manzanita, a few white Cymbidium orchid blossoms, and hanging votives. The richly colored Natural Manzanita Branches are matched by the color of the pot, and contrast nicely with the orchid blossoms.
Manzanita Branches are often the first choice for hanging relatively heavy objects such as votives or crystals, and for good reason - no other readily available branch is as strong at such small diameters. One drawback of Manzanita Branches is that due to their volume, once they go above 36 inches, the shipping cost gets very expensive. If you want to hang objects from a display greater than three feet and aren't ready to shell out over $100 for shipping, consider alternatives such as the Mitsumata (you'll probably want to shape these), Himalayan Birch Forks or some other Project Grade items, such as Sandblasted Redshank.
