    I don’t really understand the tuscan theme…
    & I have to be honest I don’t understand themes at all. Isn’t having colors good enough? You could always add in any of those things you posted and if they fit your color scheme it doesnt really have to be a “theme” you can just add whatever things you like.

     

    If I had to pick one I guess I would say love birds.

     

    ETA: I also dont think I’d like to recieve the bird’s nest favor. If the eggs are edible, I’d feel weird eating unpackaged food thats sat on a table, especially depending what the nest is made of, and if the eggs aren’t edible I don’t know what I would do with a knick knack like that. Probably throw it away. It’s cute I just dont see its use.

    @MissParrot:  All I’m really seeing is the purple. If you want to convey a theme you have to downplay the color scheme. I like the birds better than the Tuscan theme though. Perhaps do neutral color table linens and have birds nests or feather centerpieces.

    I’d say love birds since you already picked your colors. And it’s such a cute theme!

    To be honest, when I think of Tuscany I think of burnt orange, yellows, reds, greens – earthy colors, fields of wildflowers. I think it might be hard to mesh a Tuscan theme with plum and teal. On the other hand, a lovebirds theme is very color-neutral and can be pulled off with any color palette.

    Well I’m a crazy parrot lady, so I voted love birds!  🙂  I know I will never be allowed to make it my theme, because my SO, probably quite correctly, would not want a wedding themed around my insane pet parrot, but still, it would be awesome!

    I love the little bird caketoppers!

    I’m not loving either theme sorry! I do however have an irrational fear of birds LOL 

    I agree with a PP that I also dont get the Tuscan theme???? Do you really need to have a theme?

    @MissParrot:  I agree with the pp that Tuscan usually implies a totally different color scheme.

    Nobody NEEDS a theme bit it can be fun to have one, in addition to the color palette.

    I love the lovebird theme,but I would continue your search for a wedding favor if you re determined to have one.Most wine drinkers don’t really want odd glasses that don’t match the rest of their stemware. I would hate to see you do all that work and spend all that money only to see them left on the tables.

    I think the egg shaped  and colored candies are adorable.

    @LittleRedOwl:  I have to agree. I’m not sure if you are really portraying a Tuscan theme correctly. And I think if you were doing the love bird theme, it would be nice but just make sure you just don’t go over the top. 

    Maybe you could look into other themes? The colors you are going with are sooo pretty, I feel like you do something so much more. You really don’t even need a theme.

    I’ve been to a bird themed wedding and I thought it was a bit odd honestly. I don’t think a cage is a good way to represent a new marriage, haha!

    @MissParrot:  You can use any edible favor and simply package them in something related to your theme.
