DOILIES: The Greatest Gift for the Bride on a Budget…

People, LOOK what you can do with doilies!  I mean, flimsy freaking doilies!  It’s seriously a thrill and a half sometimes, to see what my fellow bloggers have come up with.  Two Brunettes teamed up with Cyd from The Sweestest Occasion and Ami of Elizabeth Anne Designs and came out of the whole thing with all the delicate loveliness you see below.

I’m really feeling everything about this table design.  But there’s a special place in my heart for those lovely wide cyan ribbons they’ve added as accents to the dessert jars...

Two Brunettes created the place cards and gift tags, and Ami was responsible for an inspiration board that brought this little shoot to life!

I am obsessed with the simplicity of this and totally recommend it if you’re looking for a low cost way to pretty up your day.  This screams beautiful, but it whispers easy and inexpensive.  Which means we’ve stumbled upon a bit of a holy grail here!

By the way, Two Brunettes hand painted those teensy weensy flowers you see in the centers of the doilies!  How much do you LOVE that?!!  But seriously, guys, if you think that’s cute, then you’ve got to check out Two Brunettes‘ blog.

Ok – your thoughts?  (… before you run to the grocery store for some doilies?)

xoxo!  -Alison

    I think doilies can be super charming {like above}! They'd be perfect for a tea party-themed shower, too!
