certainly… you will need bird cages! Use these as card gatherers

You can find bird figurines at thrift or dollar stores and spray pain them all the same color, then set at the base or incorporate into your centerpiece.

candy favors could be in little nests, or have at each place setting purely for the decor

love bird aisle runner- you could repeat it on your table runners

I can’t seem to find a pic of our fan programs, but they had little bird silhouettes on them.  We also did double duty with our Save-The-Date Cards.  The image above is our table “numbers” with our Save-The-Date Cards framed.  So the extras we had we got to use again at the wedding.  Little birds in the tree.  =D

I did a lovebird/rustic wedding… DIY.  

Birdcage card box, we had random bird figurines, bird houses at Tables.  Birds nests held candy and nuts on tables.  Bird salt and pepper shakers, love birds leading paint (like clear stained glass) on our cupcake and wood cupcake stand.  Sticks, rocks, sand in our candle holders.  Love bird cake toppers. My dress even had blue love birds sewn in with our wedding date underneath in the liner. We even did our favors as bird suet, shaped like hearts tied on twine.  I will get some pictures for you.

Here are a few of my picturs.  The glass on the cpcake stand was from old storm windows, we added ribbon and then paiinted on the birds and our initials were on the top. (on the bottom of the glass so they didn’t touch the cupcakes.)  YOu can see a few randmon birs at the bottom of the cupcake stand. The wood on the stand was a tree we cut down on my sisters property and stored for months. We used them on the tables too.

Our nests were styrofoam bowls with that nest like stuff bought at Joann’s and glued on, and then satin scraps hotglued in as a liner for candies and peanuts. The salt & pepper shakers were actually FREE!! we eat Lean Cuisine meals and enter the codes online, so I redeemed them for the salt & pepper shakers.

The two centerpiece pics show the bird houses, we had them all over the tables, one with each centerpiece and they were each painted differently.  My mom picked these up fo about a dollar a piece, and we painted them.  The favors are also in those pictures, we made the suet, it cost about $10 for 100 favors. 

My sweetheart cake that the Darling Husband and I cut together that had our toppers was jst mainly for show.. it was a box cake, made by my sister and she decorated it.  You can see the other birds that were just random there. 

The last picture shows our entry way, we didn’t iron the table clothes, no one cared, but it shows the birdcage card holder and fingerprint tree, which had love birds in it.  We had random birds and another birdage candle holder on these tables.

It cost very little for the decor, a lot was from nature & went back to nature.. twigs, sticks, rocks, sand, wood. We wanted strictly love birds, but the theme was more appealing the more rustic we added to it.  Hope this helps. 

Sorry I put so much on here. 🙂
