This is a "vintage" runner I bought on ebay. I''m not sure how it will be used, but I love the white on blue!

I am going to use these clasps to make either necklaces or bracelets my BMs. The coolest part about them is that they are made by a studio in Asheville! How perfect!

I''ve also been on the lookout for vinage blue enamel bird brooches similar to this one. I was thinking I would use them on the bouquets, then the girls could keep them... Can you tell I have been overly focused on jewelry lately?!

I''m not sure what the cake is going to look like yet, but here are some bird-related cakes for you, in case you have not already seen them:

I *just* got an email from the stationer telling me that she expects to receive the invites from the printer this week!!!!!! I am so incredibly excited!

And I love that cake, but I don''t want fondant, so I am not sure it would work as well. I am actually hoping to have a chocolate-iced cake, but I don''t know yet whether or not Deerapark will do it. We shall see...

I JUST now saw this post again and am drooling over those cakes! So, so gorgeous (especially that last one!). I also love the table runner, and the pottery, and stamped bird necklace from etsy, and those clasps you have for your BMs! Basically everything. You have fabulous taste.

No worries about the bird nests! Just let me know when they're safe and sound at your house.

Thanks, Ebree! You should post some of your stuff, too!

I heard back from the caterer today, and they can do a chocolate buttercream, so I am definitely going with that! Yum! I think it will have branches/leaves up the sides and a nest on top.

I don't have much in the way of bird decorations except for the invitations, but the design is in pieces. I've yet to put it all together, but when I do, I'll post it!

Oh, and for our cake, we're going simple. This cake (that I poorly 'painted' cake jewels off of):



With these 2 little gum paste birds from Wendy Kromer (www.wendykromer.com) as the cake topper.

Ebree: I love those Wendy Kromer birds! So cute! And the little hummingbird is really sweet -- it will look great in your bouquet. What invites did you decide to go with? (forgive me if you have already posted and I forgot/missed it!)

Aren''t they adorable? I found these cute porcelain birds online that I was going to use, but they''re vintage and I have no idea if they have lead in them. I then just decided to go for Wendy''s birds, for safety reasons.

As for the invitations, we''re actually making them ourselves. I found several bird themed invitations I loved, but they were all out of budget.

I''ll see if I can tweak it enough to post an idea of the design soon.
