Those look great for a winter wedding, and you can’t beat the price! I really like the snow tipped pine cones too!

They’re so pretty! I especially love the pinecones- and the price. You cannot beat that.

More sticks might be nice, to fill it out a bit. Not too many, maybe just more near the center portion.

Can’t beat that price! It’s very pretty! πŸ™‚ I’ve used that vase for my mock up, and am thinking about getting them for the real deal (35 tables as well). I would love to see how it would look with just a few more branches, or maybe with a branch or two of those sparkly Christmas decor branches (silver) that have the little balls/beads on them? I’ve seen them at hobby lobby. πŸ™‚

P.S. If you do decide to add more branches, you could save money by just collecting them – as you did the acorns! My friend pulled off 35 centerpieces with collected branches. Spray painted them golden (silver, in your case) and they were just beautiful! πŸ™‚

Did you use cotton batting, or cotton balls?  I really like the overall thing, but from the picture it looks like cotton balls.  Using cotton batting and kind of shredding it a bit might look a little smoother and more realistic.

Or use the cotton balls as a base to stay nice and plump, and make sure it doesn’t fall down and use something like this on top?
