Pleached Hornbeam trees - Pleaching is the weaving branches of multiple trees together for privacy, wind & sound block. Best trees for pleaching are Lindens, Hornbeam (Carpinus betulus), Beech, Apple, Pear, Hawthorn, & Carob.

As a final table touch, twist bare stems around napkins and slip in a single leaf to act as a place marker, using gold ink to write names. Before use, soak ivy in water for at least 30 minutes to…
