PB Inspired Centerpiece
December 10, 2010 by Laura
I love this centerpiece that Pottery Barn is currently featuring!! I love the natural look but have never really gotten into the whole nest thing. So, I figured I could create this on my own.
Mine is a little more crazy, free flowing than the PB version but I like it! We (read: Conner) trimmed some branches off of our Magnolia tree and then I spray painted them silver.
I stuck the branches in a big hurricane vase we had from our wedding ($13 instead of $80!) and filled it with faux snow I had on hand. The red beady garland was leftover from a Christmas past and I thought gave the centerpiece a little pop of red.
The ice ornaments were purchased from Target two years ago and the crystal drops are from the original chandelier that was in the dining room. Unfortunately the top of my head and the bottom of the chandelier had a little accident so the chandelier went in the trash and the crystals that weren’t broken in half went into a plastic baggie, just for projects like this!
Here is a view from the back of the centerpiece, looking into the entryway and our Salvation Army buffet
. I am very pleased with how it turned out! I am still on the hunt for a tablecloth/runner and napkins…hope to have an updated picture with that soon!
