I love these cute bows and flowers to use for gifts, cards, place settings, favor boxes or just about anything. They are such a great mix of textures with fabric, paper and lace. Check out this DIY idea and other cute ones on Dear Lizzy.

:::Decoupaging with lace::: I never thought of this before! Lace adds texture, elegance and some fun to a plain old vase!
I found this great idea over on UrbanComforts blog where she has tons of great photos and ideas for decoupaging with lace.
How to make a paper doily: This is such a great idea using just scissors and a hole punch. I can’t wait to add this lace paper to my cards, gift wrapping and lots more!
Check out this fun DIY doily bowl by Heart and Made UK. I could use this cute bowl for all kinds of things around my apartment, just lovely!
A couple weeks ago I had the best time at a Sunday afternoon tea party with some lovely ladies from work! We got all dressed up and a tea hat was a must! Being that I have short hair and I never have been a hat girl, I decided just to whip up a dainty little lace hat for the party.
I should have taken photos of how I made it, but I didn’t sorry. All I did was basically took a section of lace (left over from my Madonna Halloween costume) stood in front of the mirror and bunched it all up until it laid across my head the way I liked it. Then I took a needle and thread and stitched the gatherings in place. Next, I took this rather crazy looking blob of lace and sewed it to a black headband. I clipped on a couple black flower pins, cut off the excess lace and voilà! Perfect tea hat!
We each brought a dessert to the party as it was a cookie exchange too. I told you it was a great party: tea and chocolate! I brought these little chocolate cake balls on this wonderful shabby chic tray that my mom bought me (she is the best!).
After having such a great time dressing up, sipping tea and eating way too much chocolate I wondered: Why don’t we have tea parties more often?
I have fallen more and more in love with lace jewelry! These are from one of my favorite etsy shops White Owl. They have so many great designs in amazing deep, rich colors. If you want some inspiration or you just want to take a few minutes out of your day to look at something beautiful, head over to their shop.
If you are feeling extra creative today, I found a tutorial on how to make your own lace jewelry by Green Eyed Monster, take a look!
Love the idea of wrapping a present in lace. The wrapping and presentation of the gift can be almost as much fun as the gift itself!
