Bless Our Nest...

Our ladies banquet theme this year was "Bless Our Nest". I've taken quite a liking to birds, cages, nests...
I thought I'd share some pictures of what I came up with and put together for centerpieces and such.

This cage was borrowed, I'd love to find one like it, but I added the nest, baneer, bird, ivy, etc.
This was the main centerpiece.

I had 4 of these - 2 green and 2 cream. The verse on the tags are Psalm 84:3

These were branches that had a little grapevine wreath nest on them and I added some plastic eggs, real feathers and little birdie.

This was the group of them. They looked great on the tables.

Here are some Edible Bird's Nests that we made. You just take chow mein noodles (the crispy, salad bar type) and pour melted chocolate on them. Mix or toss quickly and then carefully form them like nests on wax paper. Place jelly beans or chocolates to resemble eggs. Paste them on with peanut butter. Yum. We had one at every place setting in cellophane bags.

Very nice. I used to paint and decorate bird houses years ago. Something very peaceful about birds and nests.
