@sweetchiquita12:  I’m using a picnic basket that we got second-hand.  Goes with our rustic decor.  If I have the time, I’ll probably re-line it with something in our colors (right now, it has blue gingham fabric on the inside).

I’ve seen people use mailboxes, and I thought that was pretty cute.

@sweetchiquita12:  We used a bird cage, decorated with a handmade sign and ribbon, worked great!

I’m using a large round hat box, where I’ll make a slit on the top. Nothing too unique ๐Ÿ˜› I love the birdcage/lantern ideas.

We are using old barnwood as table runners so my FFIL made a card box/ mini trunck out of the extra wood. It has a lid and can be locked I just need to find an antique looking latch for it. Ive seen some great ones in the DIY section on this sight too.

We are aldousing a large birdcage with a sign attached saying ‘cards’. I’m going to decorate it with flowers, jewels and pearls.

I’ve seen people use mailboxes, but a friend of mine just took an old shoebox, put a slit in the top, covered it in fabric that matched her wedding colors and used that.

I bought a woven box from the basket section at Michael’s.  It was on sale for $5, but I’m pretty sure it was less than $20 full price.  I had a piece of string with all the letters spelling out “CARDS” attached to the inside of the lid, and it sat open on the table.

I made a bird cage card box. Found the bird cage and fixed it up. I also ended up selling it after the wedding and got all our expenses back so it ended up costing us nothing.

I found a birdcage at TJMaxx, and my mother painted it ivory for me. I then added some silk peonies and some beautiful ribbon.

@Treejewel19:  Oh my gosh! Like everything else about your wedding, that birdcage is spectacular! ๐Ÿ™‚
