My wedding is vintage, black and white, and dove themed. This unusual combination means I've been doing a lot of handcrafting as well as thrifting and gathering things for it. I wanted some doves to incorporate into my reception decor. I thought I'd nest them in fanciful objects, so I used a lot of vintage things.
For the tall dove, I took apart some artificial flowers and put them back together into one big flower. I used this is the the base for the nest. It's perched on top of an old wooden candlestick I painted black.
The vintage urn is filled with Spanish moss, and has streamers of beaded trim and new and vintage lace.
The teacup, which I think I might modify a little still, was done largely the same way as the candlestick.
