My sea shell Christmas ornaments: favors or just gifts???

Recommended Posts

So I ordered these little shell 'charms' from Oriental Trading Company, hoping to use them as our Christmas ornament favours...

I was planning on threading a ribbon in one of our colours in the ring on the shell and attaching a monogrammed tag to it (that would be removed probably b/c it'll be too big). OR I could get the ribbon that it dangles from printed with our name and date or thank you, for example...

I know some others girls on the forum have ornament favours.

 

My questions are:1) Are these too small? (I thought they'd be bigger)

 

2) I only bought enough for each 'family', not per person and my hope was to make our favours in boxes that doubled as place cards, like this:

So should I go get more of the shells or is it weird to give every person a Christmas ornament because then there may be some families who have like 4 ornaments... am I overthinking this? LOL! Someone slap me!

 

3) Or should I just add them to the OOT bags as a 'bonus' and get some different favor to go in our little boxes on the tables?

I think those are really cute! I don't think they are too small, the size shouldn't matter too much. I would use them as favors/placecards and give them to everyone. I don't think it's weird that a family will get a bunch of them. I would add a tag with your monogram on it. I think those are a great idea, especially since you are getting married on the beach around Christmas, they kind of tie the two together.

i would probally just add the to the OOT bags, but that may be because we are not doing both favors and OOT bags. i feel like the bags are full of more usefull things than an favor of almonds ect. But if you want to do the favor thing those would be fine. Everyone is going to love your bags so much that they will think that you went way above a silly favor that most people dont ever really use. Try not to over think it and just have fun.

LOVE these! I am now thinking that since it will be close to Christmas before we get our Thank Yous done, this would be a great thing to include in our Thank You cards as well, with a charm and little hang tag that has the location and wedding date for those who were able to travel to our DW with us.

I think I feel the same... still waiting on FI to help me decide.

I think what I'll do is make one up fully as though it was going in the box (and do the box up) and then when I see the mock-up I'll probably feel better.

You know how it is when you have it in your head this great picture, but it looks kind of dinky beforehand? LOL! smile116.gif

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
