One of the neat things about visiting different venues to choose one for our wedding and reception was that we learned at least one thing from each place, even the ones that we didn't choose for our wedding. The take away from a downtown venue that we liked was that many people are using birdcages to hold the cards on the gift table these days. I liked the idea and began keeping an eye out for one.
I had actually been keeping an eye out for birdcages for over a year now because they're rather "in" but that means they can also be "more than Kelly wants to pay". As my mom and I were shopping last weekend she was great at spotting them and calling my attention to them. We saw ones priced in the $20s, $30s and even over $100 (it did have a cool stand but really!?). Then there was this one!! Ten dollars and it even has a heart! I think I'll probably paint it robin's egg blue and tie a nice orange bow on top. Adrian's also going to cut a few of the bars for me so cards will fit in. What do you think? Kelly
