After spending a weekend in the mountains surrounded by Birch and Aspen trees, it's no surprise that I suddenly have them on my mind. I've always loved the texture and colors of birch bark and have dreamt of one day covering a wall in my home with this beautiful paper. But since I'm still a few years away from homeownership, I realize I'll have to satisfy my birch tree obsession some other way. Fortunately there's no shortage of goods when it comes to incorporating this natural look into your events and everyday life. For starters, I've got my eye on those straws and napkins.
