Dr Seuss Branches

Sometimes you need a creative centerpiece that is fitting for children and a bit more whimsical than just flowers. Get some branches, remove all the leaves, and simply put gumdrops on the ends. Here we used just purple for a 4 year old's birthday party, but you can make them with any colors. At Christmas, it is tradition with my kids to make several branches of multi colored ones and set them into the branches of the Christmas tree. We call them Dr Seuss branches. They just remind me of his drawings and imagination with all the colorful ends sticking out all over.

I would love to hear if you have an unusual centerpiece suggestion.
