A theme for the birds

Posted on June 4, 2013

For a subtle nature theme, consider birds and feathers. The beauty of choosing this kind of theme is that there’s such an assortment of ways to make it your own. You can incorporate bird (or feather, or egg, or nest) elements into everything from your invitations to your bridesmaids’ gifts.

We rounded up some examples:

What could be sweeter than these lovebird kissing bells from Cherish the Moment? They double as place card holders with poems—“Today as we gather together, wish us a love to last forever. If you would like us to share a wedded kiss, ring the bell for lifelong bliss”—on the back that encourage guests to give the bells a ring.
