Partridge in a Pear Tree


I’ve been wanting to make an inspiration board with a “partridge in a pear tree” theme ever since I saw the picture of pears dipped in glitter. Super easy/cheap DIY, anyone? I like how this board has a bird theme, but with a winter twist, since birdcages and the like are done so often in spring and summer weddings. I used colors from both partridges and pears–brown, classic green, charcoal gray, and just a touch of silver. Not only am I really liking how the colors and feel of this board turned out, I also love some of the easy ideas that brides can take from it, from a Christmas tree instead of a gift table, to baby’s breath wreaths, to simple fruit escort cards.
