An Easter wedding project: bird nest favours in vintage tea cups
Wedding project: bird nest favours in vintage tea cups
April’s creative project is designed around the idea of an Easter wedding. When thinking about ideas for a simple but beautiful Easter wedding project I just knew it needed to centre around mini speckled chocolate eggs.
How to create these bird nest wedding favours
I used ordinary rabbit hay (I have lots of this lying around as I have two cheeky bunnies of my own) that I shaped into a small nest. Then I placed the nest of hay into a pretty vintage tea cup complete with saucer. I had a search around my backgarden and found some moss and a tiny white feather, which I placed in the nest to give it a more natural look. Then I nestled a handful of chocolate mini eggs in the centre.
Using a pair of scissors, carefully cut away any straggly bits of hay – this will make a neater nest. They also look quite effective without the moss or feathers, so you could always leave these details out.
They would be perfect as wedding favours, but could also be doubled up as place names by simply tying a luggage tag to the tea cup handle. For your wedding, simply place a cup and saucer in each guests place setting – it also provides people with something to nibble on while they listen to the speeches.
They are easy to replicate on a large scale as the hay and mini eggs are relatively inexpensive. For the vintage tea cups, either search carboots and charity shops, check out ebay, or hire them from a venue decorator like Pebble in the Pond.
