I know birds and birdcages are all the rage in weddings right now, however, I’ve never really been completely enamored with them for our wedding, no matter how cute I find those details. Today, my opinion may have just changed. While on the hunt for inspiration for flower-free affordable centerpiece ideas, because contrary to popular belief even a simple grouping of pillar candles can get very pricey very quickly, I stumbled upon these birdcages. They’re cute, they’ve got a fun vintage feel and they’re somewhat of a blanket canvas. Card holder? No thanks, I already have one of those that I’ll be sharing soon. Stick a pillar candle in it and call it a centerpiece? Now we’re talking.
Tell me, now wouldn’t these be just adorable amidst a collection of votives and tealights sparkling from assorted containers I’ve been amassing? And don’t forget all of those Christmas ornaments my mother and I hoarded after the holidays. I’m seeing an array of assorted found objects all artfully scattered around a birdcage centerpiece for tables that are fun, a bit unexpected and very pretty in a fun vintage, whimsical way.

And did I mention that each birdcage is only $9.99 at Save on Crafts? Because I don’t know about you but $13 centerpieces (give or take with a pillar candle added to the mix) are my kind of centerpiece. Plus, unlike flowers, I can sell these babies post wedding and recoup a bit of our expenses. I might be crazy, but I may just be onto something here. What says you?
