A few years ago I made 12 centerpieces for my gsons Christening. As it was the week before Christmas, I used hydrangea from my garden I had cut and saved, sprayed them gold, evergreens, pine cones, white flowers and baby's breath. I didn't have a digi cam then, so no pics.
Here are some I just sprayed gold for an arrangement I am making for a dinner party next Sat. You will have to tune in the end of the week to see the finished product, lol.
