The cage's color and size should correspond to your cake, but use your judgment for what combinations work. I suggest getting cages with rounded tops to give off a classier feel than the rectangular shaped ones. You can also tie a few roses or your preferred flower to the top to fancy it up a bit.
Another cool birdcage idea could be to use them as place card settings or table number stands. All you have to do is attach either a name card or table number to the front using a small amount of tape or hot glue. The cages are elegant enough to stand on their own, but adding a tea light or flower in the center would be absolutely gorgeous.
So if you have a vintage style wedding coming up or are looking for ideas for a baby shower cake, then this maybe your cake design!
