Hi, I'm Lianne

Over the last few years I have loved setting up my favorite bottle brush trees in a centerpiece. It is such an easy way to add a wintery touch to your Christmas decor that can last all season long, and it doesn’t have to be expensive!

You can always find great deals on bottle brush trees from Target, or I see them often at Homegoods and TJ Maxx. The best deal is this set, though. Since you are putting them into a dish of sorts, the way the base looks doesn’t make much of a difference.

I put together a list of some beautiful trays and bowls that would work perfectly for you to create your own whimsical bottle brush tree forest. Check them out below!

  1. Wooden Oval Decorative Bowl $32
  2. Acacia Wood Bowl $50
  3. Small Wooden Tray $15
  4. Large Wooden Tray $13
  5. White Stone Round Tray $58
  6. Marble Rectangle Tray $40

I wanted trees without snow this year so I went with these sets from Target. The medium size and small size were perfect for this year’s setup.

  1. 2 pack 6″ Bottle Brush Trees – $5
  2. 4 Pack 4″ Bottle Brush Trees – $5

Let me know if you try this out! I’d love to see. Share on Pinterest or Instagram and tag me!

Love where you live,
