winter wonderland party tablescape

This past weekend, we had a winter wonderland party. I thought I would share my budget friendly buffet tablescape with you.
The most expensive thing I bought was the "tablecloth." I bought four yards of white fleece ($16). However, I used it to cover other parts of the house as well. If you are just covering your table you will not need four yards.

I bought a bag of fake snow at Micheals and covered the table ($3).

I went and got some branches from outside (free) and painted them with white paint that I already had (free). Then I used modge podge that I had (free) to apply some glitter I got from Michael's ($1). I put it in a vase that I already had (free) and put a little of the fake snow on the bottom.

I bought some pine cones at the dollar store ($1) on a whim one day but you could just as easily get some outside for free. I painted the tips with white paint and used the modge podge to apply the glitter.

I was going to make tissue poms to hang from the lights but I got really lazy and didn't do it before the day of the party so I nixed it. I ended up running into the dollar store the day of the party and found different sized snowflake ornaments ($3 for all of them). I brought them home and cut of the string that was on the snowflakes. I attached illusion monofilament ($3) that I found in the jewelry section at Michael's.
You could absolutely create a similar table for under $15 using things you have on hand a little bit of creativity. What do you guys thing?
