How To Decorate With Feathers
Feathers aren't just strictly for the birds, they have natural beauty, drama and elegance, so it's no wonder I love using them as decor accent pieces around the home. Coloured feathers can add glamor and pizazz, while those in their natural hue give your place a rustic look. Arrange the feathers in vases and containers. Instead of long-stemmed roses, pack a vase with long-stemmed feathers.
White ostrich feathers have been used in decoration since ancient Egyptian times. Tutankhamen and Cleopatra are believed to have used the plumes in fans and other ornamentation. Ostrich feathers make exotic and elegant centerpieces that are popular for weddings and all sorts of other events and celebrations. A single ostrich plume looks fabulous in a tall elegant glass vase.
I currently have limited supplies of gorgeous large ostrich plumes and bunches of long quill feathers in store now.
