    If they were scattered randomly on the table I wouldn’t take one unless an announcement was made or there was a note somewhere that they were the favours. They’re adorable btw, I love them!

    I voted for the last option because I don’t like taking home favors (unless they are edible for me to eat on the way home). With that said, even if they were chocolate birds, I still wouldn’t take them unless given the go ahead (i.e., announcement made, or seeing many other guests do the same).

    I personally would not unless they were clearly labeled as favors or the DJ/MC directed guests to take them. However, I was at my first wedding two weeks ago where people took the centerpieces! I have only ever heard about it happening through posts on weddingbee, and I hate to say that it was members of FI’s family who did it! Now I am super nervous about my own centerpieces just in case. In your case, I might be concerned because they are so easily pocketable… but then again, what are you planning to do with 8x however many tables you have birds after the wedding? They are adorable, though… I think they’d make a cute cake topper!

    If they’re sitting one in front of each place setting like they were meant to be favors, then yes I’d take one.  But randomly scattered and closer to the centerpieces than the place settings, I probably wouldn’t even notice there were 8 and wouldn’t take it.

    They are cute decorations … but I wouldn’t just take one unless they were set right in front of each seat. Scattered, I would look at them and maybe play with them through dinner (what? sometimes I act like a kid 😀 ), but I wouldn’t take it.

    @anon12345: Paperweight idea would totally work and I would think that it was intended as a favor. Also, most replies seem to agree that if the DJ were to announce “please take the little bird” (well, worded better…), that would do the trick, too!

    They’re so cute! But I wouldn’t take them unless I was told they were favours – in which case I’d love to take one home! Could you leave a note or make an announcement?

    I wouldn’t take the bird whether it was scattered around the centerpiece or on top of the menu unless an announcement was made.

    If you are having truffles as favors, you could always reconsider the idea of using the birds as another favor and sell them after the wedding.

    I wouldn’t know that they were favors. I would think they were adorable, though!

    I second the idea for signs on the table – smoething simple and easy like “Please take a bird home with you as a memento.”
