I had had my heart set on an antique birdcage to hold the cards at our reception but when I found this metal basket, my feelings changed.
I fell in love with the idea of filling it with hay-like paper shred and even putting a few faux chicken eggs inside. I think I am going to add a card inside just to show everyone what it is for but I think the metal basket will go with the overall theme of our wedding reception. Vintage… Rustic… Shabby Chic… Fun.
By the way, I found the above basket at Hobby Lobby and saved 50%. I heart those deals… when ya would have paid full price for something but instead saved some of that precious wedding budget money. *grin* Yep, I really like that.
