The dreadful weather this morning put paid to any outside jobs which was bad news for the pumpkins but good news for one of our local florists. She has been patiently waiting for a selection of premium Silver Birch ‘display’ logs to use in wedding features and flower arrangements.
I’ve cut many more than she will probably need to allow her a good choice. Any rejected will probably end up as blanks for the kids to paint up as log Santa’s or table numbers for restaurants or weddings.
I have been getting a bit behind with restocking our rustic table numbers and with the wedding season ramping up today was the day to put that right.
They are easily made from any suitable, seasoned logs but risking your fingers in a band saw to save a couple of pounds is not to everyones taste.
Our bespoke designs are always a favourite with restaurants but recently the trend has been towards the same rustic log design but with a blackboard paint finish. We have seen them used as table numbers, place names and for individualised messages, some very romantic, some very rude! Either way at just £10 for 5 they are proving very popular.
Each individual piece is made by me from Silver Birch trees that I actually planted, grew on, harvested and seasoned so you can be assured it is sourced from a sustainable source.
The surface available to write on is approximately 7cm wide and (depending on what you use to write on them with) they can be wiped clean and re-used or easily repainted.
