CELEBRATIONS: Wedding Birdseed in Eggshells

Wedding Birdseed in Eggshells via homework - carolynshomework (7)

Hello friends! Wedding season is here and I have an easy wedding idea that is budget friendly but on-trend. Wedding Birdseed to toss at the bride and groom. Tossing rice at newlyweds comes from an ancient tradition. It symbolized abundance and fertility. In recent years it was rumored that the rice left on the ground was harmful to birds. I’ve heard that this isn’t true but birdseed has become a popular replacement and I’m sure it’s much better for the birds and critters that clean up our mess.

I had birdseed everywhere and I just moved them from one room to another. Just have everything ready and you can quickly fill these using a small scoop, like one you would use for coffee grounds.
