Mitsumata Centerpieces

Florie Huppert of Florie Huppert Design (floriehuppertdesign@gmail.com) used our Project Grade Mitsumata Branches to create some gorgeous centerpieces for the 150th Rededication Gala celebrating the building of the Brotherhood Synagogue on Gramercy Park in New York.

The Mitsumata Branches were placed in 23 inch tall glass cylinders with clear and light blue glass marbles. Although real candles were used throughout the room and under the centerpieces, LED flameless candles were used in in the glass spheres hanging from the Mitsumata Branches. The photography was done by Courtney Karam Photography.

You indicate these arrangements were made with the project grade Mitsumata. And on your sales site you refer to "rigorous grading and processing procedures" that are not done to the project grade. Can you provide more detail about the difference in look is or refer me to some place on the site where you explain?

Thanks in advance. I am really loving all your examples, but want to make sure I get the product that is right for my application.

With our standard grade items, we unbundle the branches, inspect each one for fullness (3 or more side branches are required for the 3-4 foot branches - ones with just two side branches are "demoted" to 2-3'), measure them, discard any "defective" ones, such as those with odd crooks, cracks in the main branches, trim any broken side branches, frayed tips, etc, then repackage them.

If you just need a few bundles this is what you want.

However, if you need a lot of branches (6 or more bundles), I recommend the Project Grade Mitsumata because it is significantly less expensive (you should order a bit extra though, which is a good idea with any natural item). You'll want to make sure you have a set of pruning shears on hand though.

These are stunning! Can you tell me how many pieces (branches) were used for each arrangement? Thanks!

I agree! Those use six branches, which seems to be the right amount for any Mitsumata display - not too little, not too much - just right!
