Realsimple has a cute way to use up the squillion meters of ribbon that you might happen to have tucked away. (Compulsive ribbon buyer? Moi?)
Whip your old shower curtain hooks off and replace them with lengths of ribbon, tie them off and snip the ends at an angle. Practical? Maybe, maybe not, but it's cheap, has big impact and it's super easy to change when you get bored.
A spot of the same ribbon sewn onto the bottom of a few hand towels would totally pull the look together.
