Use paper doilies, coloured paper, glue and string to embellish a table and add a wonderfully feminine touch to your Mother's Day decor.

Make a delicate cutlery holder using plain, brown paper packets and a paper doily. The doily adds a lace-like trim that turns something inexpensive into an attractive finishing touch for a special table setting.

Oh so pretty desserts! Small paper doilies curled into cone shapes are hot-glued onto a cocktail stick or toothpick to make an elegant umbrella.

Dress up plain napkins with a band of coloured paper, or thin card, and garnish with a piece of lacy doily for an exquisite touch to your Mother's Day celebration.

Here's an easy way to make your cupcake display look even more delectable. Use brown kraft paper, coloured paper and lacy doilies to let your guests know what flavours you have made. Write the main ingredients of each cupcake: vanilla, blueberry, chocolate, etc.

Garlands are easy to make with coloured paper or thin card and some doilies. You can even make small cones to wrap around fairy lights for evening entertainment.

For a simple, decorative garland cut out triangles to wrap over thin string and glue on a piece of lacy doily.  Browse the Internet for a bird template that you can cut out to add to your garland. Make a slit through the card to insert a folded doily for the wings and let your colourful garland take flight.

Paper pinwheels never go out of fashion and it's easy to make your own. Before assembly, glue cut out doilies onto the coloured or patterned paper.
