I'm not really sure where the idea of using a bird cage to collect cards at a wedding came from. A quick google search did not reveal anything either. I knew that I wanted to use a bird cage at our wedding but I wanted it to be a real cage and not one of the white metal ones you find at Michaels. So I hunted the internet and scoured flea markets until I came across this little wooden gem on Etsy.
First I washed the cage. Then I cut a piece of foam to fit in the bottom of the cage and covered it in moss. A gray satin ribbon and a chalkboard sign with felt flowers complete the look.
