Bird's Nest ring pillows are perfect for Spring, outdoor, or rustic Shabby Chic weddings. These charming pieces make for great photo props and you can even use them to add to the reception decor after the ceremony...perhaps a topper for the wedding cake? Check out some lovely bird's nest ring bearer pillows I found; I love the creative use of flora, moss, birds, and eggs.

We had a blast meeting with all of the lovely brides at the Who's Who In "I Do" Bridal Show this past Sunday. For those of you who weren't able to make it out to the show, below are some photos of our unique reception styled booth. The theme was a Spring Fling with an ivory, chocolate, and blushing pink color scheme. Satin fabrics and color coordinated chargers and plates were pulled together to create the backdrop. A lovely decorated birdcage and mini birdcage placecard holders were used to complete the Spring Fling look. This setup works wonderful for brides who are looking to try something different from the traditional look of floral centerpieces.
