Bird cage decoration for the table
Even without a beeping bird, the vintage cages can be beautifully decorated. Small decorative bird cages are an absolute eye-catcher on a festive table. So you can fill many small bird cages with a beautiful flower or a tealight and distribute the decorative objects on the entire table. We also particularly like the idea of using bird cage decoration for the table numbers at a wedding. Something different!
You should pay attention to this when decorating the bird cage for the table:
- The size of the cage determines the space for decorative pieces.
- Is the door big enough? A little door doesn’t fit much.
- Small birdcages that can be opened from above are perfect as a table decoration, because you can fill the birdcage as you like.
Bird cage decoration for the window
A bird cage looks beautiful not only as a table decoration. Vintage bird cages also make a lot of things on a bookshelf, the fireplace or in the window.
This window decoration with a bird cage is very easy. Select the bird cage in gold, place it on the window sill and decorate with golden thistles as you wish. If you want, you can use the space inside the decorative cage to store magazines or decorative objects. We like!
Bird cage decoration with flowers
Succulents, orchids and cacti cut a pretty good figure in a decorative cage. With fresh blossoms or artificial flowers you bring even more color into play and give the plant cage an additional romantic touch. Cut flowers and artificial flowers look very elegant in a decorative cage. You can even plant moss and succulents with solid potting soil in a planting cage and place them on the windowsill, or hang them in the window with a suitable hook. Succulents, in particular, hardly need any growth space and can thrive here. Air plants in a decorative cage are even easier to maintain because you don’t have to plant or water them. Simply spray the air plants with a little water from the classic spray bottle and you will enjoy your bird cage decoration for a long time.
Our tip: If you want to use fresh flowers, then use a wet floral foam. This will keep the flowers fresh for longer. For the hip retro trend, you can also let the plants dry. Place the cage and flowers in an airy, warm place.
Bird cage decoration for the wedding
Are you designing your wedding party in a romantic vintage look? The bird cage can also be used here as a decoration. Dried roses in a white bird cage are perfect as a table decoration. Alternatively, you can use the cage as a mailbox replacement by collecting your guests’ greeting cards. Simply place the decorative cage on the gift table and indicate with a “Cards” sign that the collection point for the wedding cards is located here.
Tip: You can also spray the cage in gold or in a color of your choice, if the decorative cage harmonizes better with your existing decoration. That’s how it’s done:
Step by step to the bird cage decoration in gold:
Place your decorative cage on a firm surface that you have lined with old newspaper.
Please never spray the cage (or other objects) indoors, but always outdoors in the fresh air!
Shake the can with the paint properly and spray evenly on the decorative cage from a distance of about 20 to 30 cm.
Then let everything dry well for at least 24 hours.
