How many do you have? Do they open at the top or have slots that are large enough for cards?

I am using a bird cage to hold cards, but the top opens and the slots are wide enough to fit a card through. 

I also know someone who is using birdcages and teapots (she’s spray painting them all black, i think) and decorating them with flowers to use as centerpieces. 

Here are some inspiration photos I found for you 🙂

@Miss Marine: I have those exact ones! That’s so funny! IDK how much you spent on them, but they also have them here: http://www.save-on-crafts.com/birdcages4.html

It’s $37 for the set of 3, and their shipping was about $12 when I ordered one set. 

I actually sold the largest one already, and the girl I mentioned before might be purchasing the smallest one from me, but if she doesn’t I’ll message you and let you know- I offered it to her for $6, and I would sell it to you for the same price, but you would have to add shipping. 

Also, I think it depends on what you want to use them for. If you’re using them for centerpieces, it would depend on how many tables you have. 

For example, if you only have 10 tables, you could go get the other two and do half with birdcages and half with something else. 

However, if you were just going to do a little cluster of them in one spot (next to the guestbook or on the gift table) you could just do the cluster of 3.

For cards, you could maybe decorate the two you’re not using for cards with flowers inside and out, and then have the one for cards just have flowers around the base of it with the “cards” sign, and have them clustered together. 

Honestly, the possibilities are only limited to what you can dream up and construct.

Here are some more inspiration images for you, including some that use “our” birdcages 🙂

Something else to consider: If you are using them for centerpieces, the largest ones sit pretty tall. While tall centerpieces are pretty, unless they are skinny and only get wide at the top, (like a topiary, for example) they can be difficult for guests to see around, and can discourage conversation. 

Is it possible to hang things from the ceiling at your venue? I think it would be REALLY neat to alternate between having the smaller centerpieces on the table and the largest ones hanging just slightly above the table with candles on the table below. 

IDK if your venue allows that (ours doesn’t) but it would look awesome if you could! 

Either that, or maybe don’t fill up the largest ones as much so they are easier to see through?
