Make an amazing centerpiece from a low white vase. (Click "Click to Enlarge" under the photo for a better look!)
This 2-foot-long snowy white ceramic “canoe pot” from Bauer Pottery Company (888/213-800) is a mere 4 inches tall.
The elongated shape fits perfectly in the center of a rectangular dinner table―and the low profile won’t block guests’ views.
Line it with wintry foliage
Select plants with foliage that looks as if it’s dusted with snow.
We bought seeded eucalyptus with snowflakelike buds at a flower market to use as a base, layering the 4- to 12-inch-long snippets in the pot’s bottom.
Finish with silvery buds
Tuck stems topped with silvery buds―such as leucadendron buds―or white flowers into the foliage, spreading them along the vase’s length.
Or use pinecones, decorated lightly with white paint.
