They have colored ‘branches’ at Michaels for pretty cheap. Also, you could use hay and raffia as well as battery operated tealights. Michaels also has cheap fake birds in browns and other colors you could clip to the edge of the vase.

If you’re working with curly willow (can’t really tell from the pictures), soak the branches in your bathtub for about an hour or so, which will make them pliable and flexible like they were when fresh.  You’ll then be able to spread the tops our a bit so they don’t look quite so stick-straight.  You could attach some flower tops to the branches with floral wire (or make paper flowers, which is what I’m doing) to add some color.  Dollar Tree also has bunches of tall (approx 3-4ft) colored grasses for $1 per bunch (I found some in burnt orange and red-orange), very rustic-looking.  Good luck!
