Did you catch yesterday’s blog post? It was all about spring and ideas for planning a seasonal fête. One of my favourite parts was a bird’s nest, arranged for serving macarons. I don’t shy away from good DIY projects so to create this nest, I foraged for seasonal fauna and fashioned it into an organic and textural piece. It’s a unique way to serve macarons (or other desserts) at a wedding, a bridal shower or even an Easter celebration. Today I’m sharing the instructions for building your own nest.
To make this bird’s nest you will need:
Container to hold the macarons
DIY Projects: Step-by-step instructions
1. Arrange the twigs loosely in a circle
2. Add bunches of grass
3. Scatter leaves in and around the nest
4. Place the glass bowl inside the nest
5. Arrange the macarons inside the bowl
My nest is small in scale but for a larger gathering, use more twigs and a larger container to hold as many macarons as you like.
If you’d prefer, follow along with the video below.
Many thanks to Yann Haute Patisserie for providing the delicious macarons for this project.
