What can I do with a pink doily?

I made this last weekend but I can't think what to do with it. Maybe I'll frame it. If anyone has any good ideas, let me know!

This doily is stunning! I used to do a lot of crochet work as well. Some of my doilies I kept and use them under flower vases to protect the table top from water marks. Lots were given away to family and friends.

One thing I sometimes do, especially with Easter coming up: I lined baskets and bowls with a doily and placed colourful eggs or chocolate goodies in the basket/bowl. Makes a nice decoration. Or line a basket with a doily,put treats and small bouquets of picked flowers together, and then give it to some elderly neighbor as a treat. They'll be delighted!

Bonny! Had no idea you did Doilies! I given away many too! You beat to the Easter idea too!
The other idea is: If you were thinking of something for yourself: You could keep it in a hat box. Fill it up and join them together for a great comforter for the coming Cold weather.
I am giving up on Spring! Being in the North has twisted my head.

Years ago I sewed round doilies onto round potholders to make trivets -- they come in REAL handy, especially for holiday meals. I like Bonny's idea for lining baskets/bowls for decorations!

Awesome doily! I like the idea of framing it - then you can see it more than if it's something.

Also you could put it on an end table then put a piece of glass over it.

Have you considered drawing a corner of it? :)

What I meant was: more than if it's IN something.
