1. Plant an orchid in it. they’re the new succulents in the world of plants, and the new macarons in the world of chic gifting. they are big-impact, minimal bench space plants, so they grow great in a small container.
2. Create some mood lighting. Fairy lights are cheap and give just the right amount of glow for an evening in. Arrange your jars on a serving tray and wrap the fairy lights in and around. Add some vases for height and shape.
3. Give your rings a pretty place to sit when they’re not on your fingers. Pop them on a saucer and cover using an upside-down holder—it acts like a cloche to keep everything dust-free.
