In honor of Valentine’s Day, let me share these tiny little birds sitting in intertwined nests with you. The groom-to-be recently discovered that he is half Ukrainian and the bride thoughtfully wanted to reflect her Ukrainian heritage in their wedding favors.

These little 2 ″ -3 ″ favors were done well in advance of a summer wedding. While this order was made unusually early for “normal times”, this is perhaps a new normal for the moment: most of the people who contact me nowadays are planning summer and fall weddings. The past wedding season, with its multiple and ever-changing restrictions, has made it really difficult to plan a wedding and I really hope this uncertainty becomes a thing of the past soon.
