Doilie-Banner-Close-Up-11

There is something that I find so exciting about taking a pre-existing idea and changing it up to make it my own. I love the trend of mini pennant banner cake toppers, but wanted to create a new version of them. I have always adored doilies, and when saw these mini doilies in Michaels I knew they would be the perfect things to replace the pennants with. I decided to create a mini banner that could be used at a wedding, with the “J loves C” saying, but this idea is easily adaptable to birthday parties, baby showers, and more!

Step 6: Place the skewers in your preferred dessert (my personal favorite is apple pie, but a cake or even a donut tower would all be equally adorable), and enjoy!
