Remember I have 1000 doilies and I said I'd be doing a bunch of stuff with them? Well here is the first installment; a doily banner. You can probably tell how to make one yourself but just in case I'm posting this tutorial.http://www.babble.com/crafts-activities/how-to-make-a-doily-banner/
Here's one I made and added mulberry roses to.

I was just in a swap and this beauty arrived in the mail for me. My partner was Nancy. She had the nest sitting in a vintage punch cup. A glittery green bird is wearing a gorgeous vintage finding crown! She is surrounded by all sorts of pretty flowers. This piece is so pretty and it fits in perfectly with all my spring decorations. (okay I'll confess: I still have my Easter things out but hey, they look springy)
And here is the nest in a peat pot I sent her.

I usually buy Wilton doilies but they changed the pattern they carry in stores. I've been hoarding my last batch of doilies, growling deep within my throat if anyone gets near. But now that is all over. I bought 1000 doilies. Yes you heard right 1000.
Look how lovely.

I bought a couple of these gum machines around Easter. I wish I had bought more-maybe next year. Any way I emptied it and clipped off the tag.

I love anything tiny and anything to do with a party. Then I found these tiny party forks and bought a huge amount because you never know when you will need a cute little fork.
They are 4 inches long, silver painted plastic. They look like real flatware to me. I think they are meant to be used like a toothpick in appetizers and tiny cakes.
Look how pretty they are in a crystal glass. Perfect for a buffet

I tied the ribbon around a napkin.
