trevino24:  What about wood slabs to put the vase on, and maybe have it covered in “fake snow”? I’ve seen small hanging candles from branches on centerpieces too that look great! I’ll see if I can find some pictures.

How about something like this wrapped around inside?

What about spray painting the branches to be white and sparkly and then draping crystal strands through them?

trevino24:  You can spray paint the branches with silver glitter to give it a “winter wonderland” look.

I would spray paint the branches white then roll in or sprinkle with crystal vase filler that you can get at Michael’s while they are still wet.

Epsom salts are a great idea as the cover the unattractive butt ends of the branches. Proportionately, the Epsom salts will look better if they only come about  1/3 the way up the vase.

trevino24:  Here are a few ideas

  • You could use colored pebbles to hold the branches in place.
  • You could color the water
  • add candles around the base (perhaps candles that reflect your wedding color)
  • tie a ribbon around the vase

Be careful about hanging things from the branches.  I went to a wedding that had similar centerpieces.  Towards the later part of the reception the glass ornaments fell off and shattered on the table.  This was a bit dangerous since food and drink were still on the table

I would paint the branches white.

Also, here is a picture that is very similiar to what you’ve done so far :

If you have a dollar tree around you, I would buy some smaller vases. The vase seems to tall to me. You can get them for $1 each, same round kind but they come in 10″ and 12″.

I also like the idea of this one.. with a glitter vase [which is very easy to do!]

Here’s another idea : paint the branches silver, and wrap a ribbon on the vase, fill vase with pearls or silver sand, shells, or even beads.

Or you could even fill the bottoms of the face with small round ornaments :

trevino24:  I would do it in the vase on top of the salt. I’ve done something similar as an “around the house” decoration and Christmas time. The pinecones were slightly glittery too. It looks like they’re laying in snow. You could do some in and some out!
