That is just GORGEOUS! GREAT job!
Please consider posting that in the DIY section with some instructions!
Re: adding some bling – what if you got crystal garland and sort of intertwined it through the branches and leave only the very ends “hanging”. That will give it sparkle and a wee bit of motion, too.

Thanks everyone!!!!!!! I’m probably gonna sell them after the wedding 11/28/2010 at cost so…..
I got the branches from http://www.bloomsandbranches.com I used the sandblasted manzanita
24- 30 inches
If you buy in bulk each branch comes out to 17$ including shipping!
The whole thing is in plaster of paris… I bought that in bulk 9lbs for 9.99$ I used about 2 lbs per pot
The pot came from target garden section 12.99
the glass pebbles came from michaels 2.99
And the hydrengas came out to be like 2.60$ per stem (I used 6 stems)
Oh and…I spray painted the whole thing in white 2.99
