Hey Gals and guys. My fiancee and I are planning a winter wedding for jan 2012. My original vision consisted of snowflakes, glitter, blues and silvers. I still would like to run with similar themes but today I tried a DIY centerpiece that I really love. Only problem is it does not mesh with my theme (looks springish).
What do you think? Any suggestions how I can Winterize my centerpiece and tie in some Blue accesories?

How about keeping it frosty and simple? Only two flower types here. Roses and hydrangea. Here’s an example:

I love either one of those arrangements. 🙂

What if you did something like this:
Fill your vase with silver and winter items like this:
and then as Bellenga suggested put some iced/sparkle curly willow coming out of the top of the flowers:

Oh my! I love your orginal centerpiece idea! What all types of flowers do you have in there? Where did you get your flowers from?

If you take the twigs off of the vase and fill the vase with some fake snow I think it would look winter-y.

@Mrs.LetsGoPens:That’s exactly what I was going to say!
The twig-vine things make it super springy.

You could always frost the twig/vine and make it look more snowy, that would help. Also, what if you took out the light green accents (I don’t know what they are, sorry) and maybe added more wintry accents, like pinceones or sparkly twigs there or even a dark berry? I don’t know what your colors are, you could always tie those in.
That being said…LOVE your homemade centerpieces. They are beautiful. I am slightly in awe of your craftiness!

What if you either frosted or added glitter to the twig/vine as Megrit mentioned, or wrapped the vases with a silver or blue colored ribbon? That might help match your theme and winterize them. The are awesome looking as is though.

Thanks for all your comments and suggestions. I think I will frost the bottom grape vines, and remove most of the green accents from the bouquet. I need to find either blue flowers or blue decorations to add to the top sparingly.

I love the branches! Maybe if you took the yellow flowers out it would take away the spring look, and add in white or light blue to give it that winter feel.

I love! the centerpieces you made! they are sooo pretty and very professional looking. to make it lezz pring i would just take out the green parts to it and add in more white flowers. Also maybe spray painting the branch you wrapped around the vase in a silvery color would be nice. to add that sparkle maybe a dust of really fine silvery gilter on the branches would be nice. Then for the tea lights i would try and look out for little vases that have silvery snowflakes etc on the vases.
Maybe that would winter-fy your centerpieces. But they really are quite lovely as is!

I agree with removing the green accents and frosting the vines. You could also sprinkle some fine glitter on the flowers for a bit more of that frosty look.
