As I was putting together this inspiration board, I thought to myself have I really not done a birch themed board yet?! I have birch poles all over my house, boxes of birch bark I’ve collected from the forest floor throughout the years. I’ve made earrings out of birch bark, made lip balm with essential oil of birch, and even had birch as an integral theme in my own wedding two years ago. So it is about time I put together a birch board for you all! There is so much you can do with this theme from using the actual birch poles to using the papery bark. I absolutely love the versatility of birch trees and of course, their natural beauty – the blonde wood and that glowing silvery white bark (I’m speaking here of the paper birch, Betula papyrifera, also known as the white birch) I imagine it’s what the faeries use to make their little homes. For a mountain, woodland, or rustic wedding, details of birch are a naturally elegant, yet not too feminine theme. See more inspiration boards here.
