5. Hang them up This idea works especially well if your favors happen to be magnets, but you can create the same effect by using a board with rows of hooks or nails.

6. Create a focal pieceDon't hide your favors in a back corner of the room, show them off! Display them with family photos or other meaningful knickknacks at the entrance so your guests can't miss them.
