Embrace all things trees with these essential items for your Tu B’shevat dinner party. Birch adds a minimalistic beauty to your table, and incorporating tree products like maple syrup, pine nuts, and tree fruit helps you appreciate all they offer us.

(Winter) Birch Tree Cake
Stare at dessert all night with a beautiful statement cake as your table centerpiece! Tu B’shevat lands in the winter in the States, so adding touches of snow and woodland creatures feel fitting to the season.

Assign seats with flair and without actually using any wood.
Birch Tree Inspired Mugs
