{Party Trend} Beautiful Buntings

Above image from artist Janet Hill,  prints available in her Etsy shop.
Over the past year I’ve seen a beautiful trend in the party world…the increased use of buntings as party decor.  Buntings can be made of paper or fabric, and may include wording, like a banner, or used simply as decoration.  I made a paper bunting/banner for my daughter’s candy party earlier this year and I really loved the way it completed the candy buffet (shown below).  I’ve continued to see buntings of all colors, shapes and sizes adding beauty to birthdays, showers and weddings.  Below are a few of my favorites.  These may give you some ideas as to how you could include a bunting (or two or three) in your next celebration.

Of course most anything that looks great full sized, looks even cuter when it’s tiny!  Check out these adorable mini buntings (below) use to dress up cakes and cupcakes.

But first, I need to go make some buntings!
