I completely forgot about it until literally the day before the wedding. I took my Maid/Matron of Honor to Target and we found a cute wodden box that was decorated in my colors and bought it. I could probably do something with it now if I thought about it.

We went to Michael’s (or somewhere similar) when they were having a large sale and got a bird cage for something like $10. I can’t find an image of what we got online. Let me know if you want me to take a picture of ours when I get home.

We are using a wood and glass terrarium.  The sides are open for the cards to slide into.  Or, you could keep the top open.  

You could use it in your house by adding some succulents or candles. 


Sorry the pic is sideways, didn’t know how to flip it!

We used a birdcage.  I couldn’t find one big enough in gold so had to get it in white and paint it myself…

We used a little metal birdcage that I decorated with ribbon in our colours and a sign that said “cards”. We’re currently renovating, so its been packed up in a box with a lot of other wedding stuff, but it will probably eventually be used as a part of our decor (we’re getting a bookshelf/display cabinet built and it will probably go in that) as it also matches the colours that we’re using in our home.

cgee2018 :  antique bird cage on it’s own stand – I don’t have a good picture of it but it worked perfectly and now it’s in our living room.

A wooden basket I bought for 25 cents at the thrift store.  It was the perfect diameter.  I don’t have any pictures of it, but it worked exactly right for what I needed it for.

 You could choose to use a vintage picnic basket. You can use it later for romantic picnics with DH or store magazines and newspapers out of sight.

I got a trunk-style box from Michael’s, then spray-painted cardboard letters and glued them on… I used like elmer’s glue so they were easy to remove afterwards! It’s a good size now for recipes and other kitchen knick-knacks.

I just used a plain dark brown rattan basket that I got at Michaels.

My Fiance made an adorable letter box on a stand. Its real size and we painted the whole thing white and added metal rose gold filigree brackets to it and custom calligraphy saying Wishes on the front of the letter box and a side panel on the pole with Mr & Mrs with our surname – so it looks like a cute real life post box. Im not sure I could use again, but Im sure ill find a way!

We are stacking cute little wooden logs around the base for extra stability. We are having a garden winery wedding so it fits right in! I figure people will give cards so why not a letter box 😂

I bought an old dented mailbox from a junk store, smoothed some of the dents and cleaned up the flag a bit, and then I painted and distressed it. This picture doesn’t show well, but the inside is turquoise, which was our main color, and the side has our last name and date in gold. I was pretty happy with the way it turned out. It is currently sitting in our kitchen and could potentially hold mail and other papers ha!
