(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.

Potted Lavender Plants that Resemble Mini Trees

Okay so these aren’t birch themed, but they are so cute! The lavender scent can also help freshen up your home, and the still living potted plants honor nature more than cut flowers.
