When winter surrounds us with a frozen landscape, echo the pristine beauty of white with an icy centerpiece.
Start with a heavy urn in white and fill with icy branches. To make the branches, coat flexible branches on one side with tacky glue and roll in crystal vase filler beads. Let dry and repeat on opposite side of branch. Dry overnight and arrange in florist foam or clay. Decorate icy branches with crystal snowflakes, prisms, chandelier prisms, or iridescent bead ornaments. Drape with clear beaded garland. Look for small silver birds and gilded nests–anything to carry over the icy theme.
Place the centerpiece on a white damask cloth or lace. Surround the centerpiece with white candles in silver or clear glass candle holders. If there is a chandelier above the table, hang with more prisms and crystal ornaments. Light the candles and enjoy the icy sparkle.
