Cool Idea: From Bridal Bouquet to Holiday Decoration

Since I'm asking you to post your holiday decorations for my Su Casa Challenge, I figured it was only fair for me to post a photo of a little of my holiday decorating.

This Summer, I had all of my bridesmaids wrap their bouquets in vintage doilies (which you can see in this photo, in my sister's bouquet) for my wedding. We also hung starched doilies from the trees at the ceremony site. Afterward, I saved the doilies because I knew I'd want to reuse them in some way; I just wasn't sure quite how I'd do it.

To see how I adapted these bridal doilies for the holidays,


Since doilies look so much like snowflakes, adapting them was easy! I re-starched the doilies, attached them to satin ribbons, and then hung them from an overhead fixture that I'd festooned with clippings from our Christmas tree. Simple, sweet, and meaningful!

I had already seen your wedding photos previously, but it was fun to see them again. Where did the wedding take place at? Probably not in the Bay Area, no?
