Love Nest

Now that spring equinox has arrived we can all start thinking about our favorite things relating to spring! If you are like me, the lovely sight of pussy willows popping their heads after a long year of dormancy and the wildly excited bird sounds that gets me ready for the season. There are so many things about this fresh season of new beginnings that can inspire a person, or perhaps a wedding theme.  Why not take full advantage of the charm that this season has to offer by using the colors and quintessential elements of spring as inspiration for your wedding design?

Robin's egg blue, creamy white, and field green is a lovely palette for a fresh and sophisticate spring wedding.  One could incorporate elements such as a robins egg nests gift set and a matching blue save the date card or invitation. Because the list of possibilities are endless for spring inspired weddings, we have included just a few of the ideas we love.  Best of all, they are all DIY ideas!  Spend a rainy Saturday creating these in the comfort of your own little love nest with your fiance.

Robin's Egg Gift Set

To create a robin's egg gift set, all you will need is nests, such as these natural looking ones found at Williams-Sanoma. Fill the nests with either soaps, fashioned to look like robin's eggs, or delicious robin's egg shaped truffles. For a great decor accent and to cary the theme into your reception room, place these lovely guests gifts at each of their table settings directly on the plate!

Personalized Save The Date

To create a Save the Date card that incorporates both, your wedding colors and your engagement ring, you can make a design similar to this one pictured above, by photographer Jean Tsai. All you will need is a piece of paper to create the background color you desire, add hand made wooden domino pieces found on Etsy, insert your sparkling new engagement ring and VOILA... picture perfect!

For extra style points don't forget to throw in a bird cage veil and a cake adorned with the flower that screams spring, crocus
