@crunchygel:  Could you pin them to the tablecloths?  Either that or make some sort of announcement, but that’s not always fool proof.

I can see the centerpieces leaving, but the stuff under them? 

Double-sided tape them down, maybe? Or put a line in your programs thanking so-and-so for letting you borrow their vintage doilies.

I like the pinning idea, as long as that doesn’t damage them! 

Another good idea for the announcement would be something cheesy but cute like, “the doilies are on display from the vintage collections of “family member’s names”, so it would be obvious that they were not to be taken.

Make an announcment AND put a note under your centerpiece but on top of the doilie:
“The centerpiece is yours, but the doilie (put a image, too, in case someone doesn’t know what a “dolie” is) is the bride’s – please make sure to leave it for her!”

Something along those lines.

I also like the idea of pinning to the tablecloths – maybe even pin the note to the doilie, and pin both to the tablecloth, haha
