A Birch Branch Lights Up an Outdor Happy Hour

We have a birch tree in the front yard. There was one limb that looked like it was dying and it snapped off easily with a light tug. Birch branches are so beautiful.


Instead of putting it in the firewood pile, I used it to light up the evening after placing it in the picnic table's center hole and adding white strand twinkle lights.
The other branch lying beside our "table tree" is an old branch we picked up on our vacation to Yellowstone a couple of years ago, a natural souvenir.
It still feels like summer in the day time but as soon as we watch the beautiful sunset, it cools off quite a bit so bringing out some fuzzy blankets before hand dresses the table setting up for fall and provides a cozy coverlet for cold shoulders.
This is the deck that sits right outside of our kitchen. Two sets of french doors lead to this tree surrounded space that is one of my favorite places to enjoy coffee in the mornings, too.
Enjoy your weekend and I hope your weather is as beautiful as ours is here along the Wasatch Front.

I love this idea. String lights are the perfect seasonal glow.

Very simple, elegant style. I personally have never liked wine, but it makes a pretty setting.

Isn't it amazing how something so simple in nature and be re loved into such a beautiful functional piece. I bet at night it is so pretty to have the lights on the branch. Very elegant and pretty.
Happy Saturday.

What a nice private backyard area you have! I love birch trees because of their pretty branches too. We have a river birch in our front yard. Your branch is nice and thick. Perfect for using those string lights on. Such a good idea! We've been having chilly weather here in GA too. It's wonderful! Its too cold to sit outside at night though without a fire to sit around.
