Christmas centerpiece revamp

I finally got around to decorating the kitchen/dining area over the weekend. I wanted to do something new and more creative than the poinsettas I usually use. I remembered the cupcake stand my hubby had made for my DDs birthday and had him go dig it up from the garage for me. (Thanks hubby!) It was black, so I sprayed it silver. I found the cute green, red and silver balls at Dollar Tree (3/$1) along with the mirrored cone tree that I have been seeing all over blogland. I wanted to carry on the snowy theme I started on the main tree, so I also picked up some epsom salt. I used a glue stick to attach the strip of paper to the edges of the tiers and poured some of the salts in each one. I stole the votive cups from another cande display I have and removed the candles and filled those with epsom salt too. Each cup them got a shiny ornament. I used silver and black paint to attempt the faux mercury glass effect on the mirrored tree. On each side is a candle made by attaching a glass vase to a candle stick - both also from Dollar Tree. I think I'll spray the candle stickes silver too. What do you think?

    Just an fyi most people are not getting the correct info in their reader-my updates are over 2 weeks old and I have made multiple other posts. I've been on with Google multiple times and they don't have an answer and I am not getting everyones updates in my reader either.
