Lovely With Lace

Feminine, soft, romantic, girlie... so many ways to describe lace. And so many ways to incorporate lace into a celebration. Lace certainly isn't for weddings only! If you're not big on "theme" parties, adding just touches of lace into a party, shower or tablescape is a nice way to bring everything together, give it a cohesive look. I've collected some of my favorite images that exemplify the many ways you can use lace. Make sure to read the notes below for a couple of noted tutorials and image sources.

Top Row:
You need to click to enlarge this photo to really appreciate it. The backdrop is made of beautiful luxe fabrics accented with strips of lace, and the bunting on front is made with doilies, twine and clothes pins. Click here for the full tutorial, featured on Amy Atlas. The same idea of using a collection of hanging fabrics and lace translates well to embellish a chair like this. Adorned with a flower, anyone will be sitting pretty at your party. To see the rest of these party photos, click here. This beautiful lace garland was done for a mexican-themed wedding. What a nice way to lighten a room. You can see the full showcase here at postcards and pretties.

Second Row:
A mix of paper, ribbon and paper doilies helps sweeten these bottles for a pretty centerpiece, as shown here on The City Cradle. I love these next hurricane lamps. I'm hoping to do something like this, this coming winter. You can find how to easily make these here. Add a strip of lace to a cake, like this one found here at The Sweetest Occasion. Serve toppings or juice in bottles embellished with lace, like these found here at Kate Landers.

Third Row:
There were many great lace touches used in an "Autumn Engagement Party" from Celebrations at Home. It was hard for me to narrow it down to these three! But I love how they used lace in the placecards, behind the L-O-V-E letters and, especially around the cake holder. And finally, another nice touch is to use lace around a mason jar, whether it's on a table or hanging from a tree like this one featured in a beautiful "Sunshine" party from Love the Day.
