DIY + DOILY {s}

January 19, 2012

 // doily gift wrapping {i will be doing this for my Valentine's Day gift-wrapping for sure!} photo via //

with Valentine's Day around the corner, i though it may be nice timing to take a look at the ever-so-romantic... doilies! i LOVE these delicate napkin-slash-coaster-looking-things for 3 big reasons. ONE. they remind me of my grandma & the gorgeous collection she always had around her house. such great memories. TWO. they're like glorified coasters! (wink-wink) but in all seriousness they work perfectly clustered under a candle, a pretty dish, or even a funky flower vase. THREE. they are  usually bright white & super feminine... which i think always makes for the perfect contrast against a more masculine wooden table! i enjoy super feminine thinks... but only in pretty small doses. let's just say these puppies can instantly give any room a little touch of that vintage-y feel... which let's face it, i adore!

*remember my Halloween tablescape?? go here to get refreshed. i think these doilies can be the perfect Valentines Day decor!
**doily hunting?? etsy has some great prices on doilies and cool (already made) doily projects!

I love them for gift wrap, I use them all the time with craft paper and bakers twine.

I love the doily table runner.. I have that pinned on pinterest. It's funny I used to think doilies were so old lady-ish when I was little, and I now I think they're so cute! great post!
