Bird's Nest Centerpiece

Its been a while since I've posted anything decor related.  With the coming of spring and Easter I saw so many other blogs featuring Egg Vignettes and I really wanted to try my hand at it too!  I scoured the Target dollar bins since I had seen some premade nests but I would have to dissassemble them and would have only gotten 3 eggs with holes in them where they were wired into the nest.  In the decor area I found a box full of 9 eggs with the nesting material which was way more than I needed.  

I pulled out some of the white china cups out  of my hutch and this is what I came up with.  
I set it atop my thrifted milk glass cake stand and platter...
...and added a cloche on top to keep the dust off.  
It sits on my kitchen table and I LOVE it!

  2. Oh so cute! I love it too. I have a little bird's nest but it's not quite as cute as yours! ;)

    Thanks so much for linking up to the "Making Your Home Sing Monday" linky party today! :)

    1. I doubt that Mom~ and I think it's probably just as cute! ;)

  3. Such a perfect addition to your Springtime table, Becky...I love it!
    Blessings and a happy day!

  4. Oh, this is SO cute! I love this idea. I'm crazy about bird nests and eggs.

    Dropping by from Claudia's party. This is my first time to participate in her meme, and I've really enjoyed seeing what everyone has shared so far.



    1. I love Claudia's meme and so glad you have joined us! Yay!!! Thank you for the sweet comments about my egg vignette! I didn't want easter to pass without making a vignette!

  5. Nice! And I love the dishes!!!

    1. Thank you! The very top milk glass I inherited and the cake stand and larger plate I found at the thrift store. The very same kind. I love them!

  6. Love your egg nest on top of the milk glass stand.
    It makes a very pretty centrepiece.
    I couldn't find any nice looking eggs here for an Easter display - frustrating...
    I'm here from Claudia's A Favorite Thing.

  8. So sweet! I love anything bird nest and egg related. You've done such a nice job with your display.

    Thanks so much for joining in this week.


  9. How dainty and darling is this sweet little nest! Love the way the speckled beige-y eggs look cozily nestled in the delicate white china cups and layered and displayed with the red accents! Nothing more charming than red and white!
