A large blackbird under a glass dome and a wreath made from black feathers were further tie-ins with the party's blackbird theme. The wreath was fashioned by sewing an inexpensive feather boa around a twig wreath that I already had.
And what would a Victorian gathering be without a Victorian gazing ball? This glass ball from my garden was pressed into service. It was quite surprising to see how many things I already had tied quite nicely into the Victorian theme.
