Using bird cages in your centerpieces is a great way to bring the outdoors in for your indoor wedding, or to accentuate the summer setting at your outdoor event. If you’re having a “garden” themed wedding, I can’t think of a better centerpiece to fit that theme. Bird cages are completely different from your standard floral arrangement, adding visual interest and a touch of whimsy that your guests are sure to not only notice, but talk about them well after the event!
Inside, you can fill them with whatever you want! Flowers, moss, branches with little fake birds on them, fruit, hanging pomanders, candles, whatever fits the style, feel, and theme of your wedding. Whether your look is vintage or modern, bird cages can match any look you’re going for.
Sooo, how much do these classy cages cost? Well, if you can find a place in your town to rent them, that’s going to be your best bet. Otherwise, it’s time to bargain hunt! Currently, on ebay.com, this beautiful blue bird cage is on sale for $11.00:
This very ornate birdcage is also on sale, with the bids currently at $11.00:
With the size and grandeur of this particular bird cage, too many of them would clutter the room. Having just one, maybe on the head table, the table in the very center of the room, or on the dessert table, would make a statement, still giving off the vibe you’re looking for. And on other tables, you can have your typical floral arrangements along with a few mini bird cages to keep the theme consistent. This bird cage is on sale for $7.50 on ebay:
And don’t think that the bird cages all have to match. Having different colors, sizes, and materials will bring in variety, while still looking cohesive, being surrounded by the same flowers and colors of your other decor.
With a little bargain hunting, and a lot of creativity, you can have these beautiful centerpieces and still stay on budget!
