A more En-cage-ing Gift Table.

Get it? En-cage-ing? Engaging? Hahaha. Ooooh boy.
So here's the thing, I, like many brides, love the idea of having a bird cage placed on the gift table. This would be ideal for storing card. I've seen cute card boxes and mail boxes (!), but I just looove using a bird cage. There are so many easily accessible options.

Here's a cute one. I'm not sure if I would want a white cage? I love that its cute and traditional, but I might be a little modern for that :). I think buying a white one would be a good idea because that seems a little standard and easy to get. I might spray paint it blue.

This one is available here for $49.46. It's on sale from $54.95.

Another white cage available the Wedding channel Store. I think I like the look of this one a little bit better. I feel like the taller more elongated look is a little more modern. I also like the little "cutesy" factor. It's hard to see in this tiny photo, but there are little hearts on the side in wire. Its only $40.00.

I think my problem is that I would want something a little more vintagae-y? I think (and I can't prove it, I might not know it until I see it) that I may want something that looks more like a real bird cage and less like a bird cage made for cards? I know, its a conundrum for sure :).

This on
e seems like more of what I want, but I don't think it matches the look we're going for. The "leaf" motif doesn't seem to really match, since we're not doing any nature themes or having an outdoor wedding or reception. You can find it here, but I can't seem to figure out if the site is selling it or not? It does say is would be $11.99 though, and that would be sweet. The problem though, is I loose the long, lean look that the second cage has. The cage search may be harder than anticipated! haha- I could settle with this one (and paint it blue or white), but seeing as we have allll kinds of time, I'll probably wait and see what comes up!
