Well – I got a quote from my florist on the price of putting floral rings around birdcages like this :
$75 per birdcage…. le sigh. Looks like I am not doing that…
Here’s where I need your help!!! How would you decorate a birdcage without flowers? Would you just put candles in it? I need ideas! I’m getting pretty discouraged.

Reality sucks sometimes when it comes to estimates for wedding decor.
Don’t get discouraged though. There are lots of great ideas out there.
I would take inspiration from the pics but use bits and pieces of ideas.
-use moss, wheatgrass, ivy or ferns to provide some greenery
this one would be great with no flowers. Replace the flowers with moss. The pair of birds is lovely if you can fnd them at a great price. If not, find decorative pieces at a thrift shop and spray paint them white to replace the birds
An airy fern can be placed inside- surround with votives and small moss or grapevine balls
Add a teacup and a candle to the glass jar of flowers
use moss or wheatgrass- use floral tubes to hold a few flowers
use moss, spanish moss, succulents, or add a few heads of hydrangea
simple garden ivy and flowering branches leaning on the cage
the cage as part of a tablescape
surround the cage with a grapevine wreath with only a few flowers or some moss

I would also weave ribbon threw it for color a candle in the center with- store bought flower would be pretty!

@MLDoddie: Instead of using real flowers, you can go to the craft store and get some silk flowers for either the inside or outside. I think it’d be much cheaper.
I really love the white bird cage in the first picture you posted! Where did you find the pictures? Do you know where I can buy it?

@bricon: Thanks for the suggestion! I am definitely going to add ribbon!
@Olive-Popeye: I just Googled those photos! I have bought some of my birdcages from Hobby Lobby, http://www.save-on-crafts.com/birds.html, antique stores/thrift stores. Michaels now has birdcages, too!
