Bunting...learn to love it

Here is something that I am in love with right now, and which seems to be very "in" for wedding and party decor. Bunting. These festive triangular flags can be made from paper, lace, or fabric, and are an affordable way to make a statement at your ceremony or reception. They work especially well for an outdoor wedding, or one which has other DIY elements which add to a quirky, shabby chic feel.

Get creative and make them yourself, using old bedsheets, curtains, vintage lace, linen, hemp or recycled paper. They are especially nice as a banner behind the head table with "congratulations" or "mr & mrs newlywed" embroidered on them, or on the dessert table as well. They are also showing up in some very stylized wedding photo shoots, which I am loving. Bunting can also be used in mini form as a super cute cake topper to tie in the theme.




Here is a great tutorial on how to make your own bunting (or, how to rope your bridesmaids into helping you make it): http://www.intimateweddings.com/blog/wedding-bunting-diy-vintage-banner/
You can also buy vintage bunting straight from etsy.com in all kinds of different styles and fabrics, like this cute vintage fabric bunting:
