Sparkling Manzanita Branch Centerpiece designed by Ali Barone

A Midwinter's Dream

So your wedding is in the dead of winter with few flowers in sight. Fear not! There are still many beautiful centerpiece options that can transform your tabletops into a snowy, midwinter’s dream. The inspiration for this centerpiece came straight from my picture window as I looked outside on a cold winter’s day. The bare branches outside my window were cover in ice and snow and the reflection of the sun had created a magical sparkle everywhere I looked. It truly was nature’s beauty at it’s best. When my client said to me she wanted it to feel “magical” I knew immediately she would love this look! This centerpiece was designed around a sparkling, silver Manzanita branch with mounds of snowy white hydrangea, hand wired orchid heads and whimsical snowflakes. The finishing touch came from the light reflecting hanging votives. The room glistened as the candlelight danced across the glimmering centerpieces. The best part is this look was achieved with just a few stems of white hydrangea and orchids!

Winter Inspirations

Winter's Charm

Winter weddings just might be my very favorite to design simply for the feeling they innately evoke. The silvery lambs ears and seeded eucalyptus provide the perfect background¬†for the ivory roses and delicate yet whimsical black and white anemones. Sprigs of evergreens, weathered woods, and a palette of creams and white tend to evoke a warmer kind of winter feeling….just add the candlelight and insert romance!
