Alternative Uses for Ornaments

As my mom mentioned last week for our wedding four years ago we used ornaments as our favors at the reception. They are purple and have 2007 written on them in silver with tags. We used them as the centerpieces with LED candles in the bottom of glass bowls. It was beautiful! Afterward we got the lefts overs which was about 100- literally. One day we will have a tree for just these ornaments and the beautiful tree skirt Jordan gave us that is purple and beaded and beautiful. We have to be creative with them for now around the house. 

Here are some ideas we've had:
On a garland. I can take no credit for this. It was all my husband's idea P.S. This mirror was an old bathroom mirror we glued stained molding to.
In baskets. There is a basket of potpourri, one of purple ornaments, and one of silver ornaments.

On all our cabinet pulls we have ornaments in the kitchen. I like the idea of decorating all aspects of your house.
I also have a large purple glass vase that holds silver ornaments in our guest bathroom.

Here are some ideas other people have done:

Your wedding favours were such a great idea.
I like how you display them around your home.
I put red glass ornaments in a large glass bowl on the dinning room table.
I really like the one where they are hanging from the light

Fun ideas! We have a vase with ornaments in our house.

I think it'd be fun to get my future kids each their own tree for their bedroom. (Yes, this would be my dream world)
