Think of the many ways we use the word “nest” in our language: When we decide to spend a quiet evening at home and alone with our family, we say that we are “nesting”. When our children leave home, we refer to “the empty nest”. When we put money in savings we “feather the nest”. When a full-term expectant mother does an impulsive house cleaning we say the she is “nesting” and will deliver soon.
Yes, a nest design speaks to our basic emotions, which makes it perfect for a centerpiece in the home. The fresh flowers in this featured centerpiece have been tucked into a bit of hidden floral foam. The nest has been secured to a branch which is then laid on the table as a centerpiece. How stylishly wonderful!
