Something Old…

My younger sister is getting married next April, and her wedding style is going to be vintage-y, classic, with burlap and lace…something like this:

So, I’ve been super excited to help hunt down various lace and crocheted doilies to help with the table decorations. Since they will be inviting about 200 people, there will be a lot of tables, which means a lot of doilies…good thing I’m starting early!

It’s really fun for me to see what kind of different doilies I can find- some have really cool patterns in them. Here’s what I have so far:

I was able to snag some for $0.25 each at the rummage sale I went to this past weekend. The most I’ve spent so far on a single doily was $1.50. These are going to look great on the tables at the reception, and we’re keeping the cost down at the same time!
