What a great idea!  I kept a bunch of my vases for the same reasons but have yet to really use them

We have definitely kept our wedding items around to use in the house, my bouquets are fabric and feather, so now they have a home in vases on my bedroom dresser, we are framing my hair feather and DH’s bout in shadow box frames to hang, and we have our lanterns to use in our yard in the summer, and will put some out in our house. Our cake topper (the word love made out of thick wire) lives on our mantle! I love having those items around to see every day!

That looks great!  I’m save some of the apothecary jars from our candy bar to do something similar.  🙂

Great suggestion! I chose christmas for our theme so we could re use our decor! I just couldnt see spending so much money on stuff we would only use once

I reused my apothocary jars. I loved them too much to part with them. Some became candle holders in our guest bedroom. I use one for cookies in the kitchen. Two are in my bathroom holding cotton balls and hair ties and the rest will be used at Christmas time and filled with ornaments. I’m also reusing our topiaries for Christmas decorations.

@Ms Mini May I ask where you got your cake topper from? I have been looking for something like that forever!

I used a ton of stuff, and gave a lot of it to my mom. She has my bird cage card box as a candle holder, some vases, and some napkins (I bought floral hankies to use as napkins and had a ton).

I also have a lot of napkins. I had doilies under the centerpieces and now they’re scattered around the house. I framed my something blue- an antique hankie with blue flowers.

@bellenga:  I love those terrariums!  We have cats that LOVE to get into our houseplants, so this would be a perfect solution to keep them out.  Thanks for posting!

@bellenga: This just made me laugh, because I think I have a few of those same cylinder vases, and while you used them to decorate and pretty up your mantle, I use them to hold toilet paper. They are seriously the perfect size. Just thought it was funny that we totally went different ways on that!
