branching out on the table for the holidays 08

As I mentioned, the last thing I needed to do for my holiday decor this year was figure out some sort of centerpiece for my table. I knew I wanted to do something with branches, and I also wanted to incorporate some gold and shiny bits. So… this is what I came up with:
I reused more of the yarn (i still have tons left) from my ornaments from last year, and tried to pay homage to those crafty folks that do the whole “knitta please” thing and cover items with crochet. Unfortunately I can’t crochet, so I just wrapped the yarn around some white branches. I also did a little mini variation of my white branch thing, and just sprayed certain masked off sections in gold.

The bottom stuff is an assortment of these plastic gold jewel thingys I found at the floral supply place. A pack of four was $8. the other silver ornaments was on clearance at Zgallerie. The votive holder is from Pier 1 from last year. The grey vase was an old vase I got from Anthropologie a few years back. I also stacked some spikey gold ornaments in a glass hurricane. It’s my cheapie version of those fabulous gold spikey starbursts that Kelly Wearstler has from her accessories collection. I thought these matched the starbursts in my tree. I got these on sale at Macys.
