Doily Definition

The definition of a doily is a cut paper or fabric circle that is used to serve food on, or to decorate a table. Doilies can be made from different materials, including cloth, lace, paper, and even plastic.

When doilies are used to serve food, they can protect the surface of the table from spills and stains. Doilies can also add a touch of elegance to a table setting. When used as decorations, doilies can help to dress up a room and make it look more sophisticated.

Doilies come in a variety of sizes and shapes. They can be round, oval, square, or rectangular. Doilies can also be decorated with different patterns and designs.

Doilies are relatively easy to make. You can purchase doilies at many craft stores, or you can make them yourself using a die-cutting machine. If you want to make your own doilies, you will need to purchase some special paper or fabric or yarn to crochet.

When using doilies as decorations, it is important to choose the right size and shape for the space you have available.
