Dawn of the Doilies ~ DIY Wedding Decorations

Doilies! Yes, I’m talking about the cut out pieces of patterned paper or crocheted lace! Think of a 90’s buffet spread under the volavants, or at your mama Dorris’s house, under her best bone china… I bet you remember doilies now!

Doilies are so versatile they can be used for anything you can possibly think of. Especially as you can get doilies in different materials such as paper, card, fabric and wool. Due to their intricate detailing, doilies add that bit of detail that may be missing in your wedding decorations. A doily table runner would fill in the blank space of the table between guests, they can be used to cover jars and other glassware and even add delicate detailing to the design of your cake – without the risk of it being too over the top.

So, get trawling through your local charity shops for crocheted lace ones or paper ones can be brought from a great website called Wedding in a Teacup.

These once uncool pieces of décor are now officially pieces of pretty again!  There are endless amounts of ways in which you can use doilies for your wedding styling.  They are cost effective and create impactful décor.  Check out these ideas:
