I don’t even know what “Doilies” really are. I just remember my Nanny giving them to us when we were little to make Valentines with! They’re definitely have pretty detail but I have yet to really understand what they’re used for. So, I came up with my own purpose for them! I’ve seen this done in so many ways before so I thought I’d try it myself. This is all you need:
$1 Doilies (Dollar Store)
There are so many different ideas for decorating receptions. The centerpieces, though sometimes overwhelming, are very simple to do. You just simply make a display for the table top and the possibilities are endless. It’s above the tables that are a little more complicated! This is a simple solution for any type of reception, specifically a shabby-chic/country wedding! It provides color and all kinds of detail! You could potential add larger and smaller tissue balls and create multiple layers! If only I had time, I would have done that.
However, it’s always a little interesting when I attempt these decorating adventures in the front yard. My dear neighbors…. which just happen to be a house full of guys, thought I was hanging BRAS in the tree! Those guys will stay nameless for now! I set them straight and fussed at them for not knowing it was Wedding Wednesday! Gosh don’t they check the blog?! (They actually do and I love them for it!) So, no Bras, just Doilies and Ribbon and a little tissue paper! Projects like these are high-impact, meaning that they can totally transform the look of a reception or any type of party for that matter! Try it someday!!
