My cousins’ wife have their birdcage as decor in their house. I actually think it’s in their daughter’s room at the moment.

If you spend the money, I’m sure you can find a place in your home where it can go – or use it for other things like you mentioned. I’d splurge since it can be used for more than one thing!

amanda1988:  Good idea! I had thought of that as a nod to the movie ‘Up’, but didn’t end up doing it. That’s a super cute idea, and you can decorate it however you please- like in the pics.

A lantern is a nice alternative. You can use it later indoors or out on the patio.

A card photo box can also be used as decor in your home and for storage

an old fashioned mailbox

a terrarium or mini greenhouse

a miniature replica of your home, your childhood home or cottage

dk121915:  Yes I do!  It’s large – about 22 inches high.  I am debating spray painting the whole thing white and then instead of an ivory bow I’d do a blush or lavendar bow.

Many couples like to use something that locks so the cards are secure. I don’t think it happens that often, but there are Bees who have reported cards being stolen.
