Birdcages, Not Just for the Birds

So, I've been looking around at wedding decor, centerpieces, themes, etc lately and have developed a deep and profound love for bird cages.  No, I'm not engaged...yet, but I do have friends who are jumping on that bandwagon as we speak and I'm all about being prepared. So, whilst looking for various spring and summer themes, I came across some lovely birdcages. They're just so pretty and romantic. Is it wrong to get a birdcage and fill it with lovely flowers instead of birds and their poo? Would having an empty bird cage be odd? Do I care? Perhaps I should try one of these other birdcage inspired decor ideas...

How about this in your backyard? I think this is actually a butterfly garden or an avery? Gorgeous, regardless.

Hm, this one seems like a fire hazard.

Very pretty...not so useful? Maybe when I have a home large enough to have substantial decor and conversation piece?

This doesn't look like it, but this is actually a cross stitch. I think it's quite adorable, how cute would it be in a bathroom or a little kids room? I have some mounted specimens, maybe this would be something nice to mix in with the display to offset the creepy, nerdiness?

I like this whole tablescape - white cage, flower lights, mercury flass candle holder. So pretty!

p.s. If you know the sources of any of these photos please send them to me!

  1. I like those kind of birdcages, I just always think it is a little sad to actually have a bird in them. THey should be free to fly around.

    1. Yes, to be honest I can't remember the last time I saw a bird in a cage, I wonder if they are still popular pets? It is definitely a bit sad :(

  3. Very cool looking bird cage. I think that is something my mother / grandmother would love, seeing as how they love birds.
