Quick Christmas Centerpiece

A few years ago, I bought two boxes of vintage ornaments from an antique store in Tombstone, Arizona.  I love the shapes, colors and detail of them.  However, they seem to get lost among all of the other ornaments on our big tree, so I wanted a way to give them a special place of their own.  I decided to put them on a silver Armetale platter with some tiny inexpensive ornaments from Target.  The result is a colorful shiny display that brings attention to the detail of the vintage ornaments.
How do you like to decorate for the holidays?
