Fun Wedding Decorations Trend: Bunting and more Bunting

wedding decotationsIn our previous post, "Wedding Banner Trends: DIY Flower Garland", we mentioned the trend of bunting. The first time I heard of bunting, I was really confused, but once I saw a picture, like the one to the left, I realized I knew exactly what bunting was. You know, it is those triangle flag banner hanging things. Despite the difficulty in describing what bunting is, it ends up being a super fun wedding decoration and  a great banner style for a plethora of wedding themes.

Bunting can blend into just about any wedding theme as it easily customizable. It probably wouldn't be at home in a super formal wedding or at a church ceremony, but it works great with vintage themes, outdoor, country, travel themes, floral, and so many other themes and styles. This fun wedding decoration works across multiple platforms, but also adds a unique and cute look to your wedding decor that is just unexpected. Additionally, it is an easy DIY.

DIY Bunting Kits

DIY is the do-it-yourself mantra that is sweeping through weddings, but sometimes do-it-yourself can be overwhelming and more messy than productive. That is why finding a DIY kit for all your fun wedding decorations needs can give you a middle ground of doing it yourself minus having to figure out how to do it yourself. Bunting is a simple wedding decoration that can have intricate designs and print, but the put together can really be hassle free.

Fun Wedding Decorations

The paper bunting kits we have include 50 flag pennants, white satin hanging ribbon, a CD with templates, test printing sheets, and instructions. The whole goal is to help you create the unique look you want affordable and with the least amount of hassle.

And really bunting is just cute! They make a great filler decoration and pennants just seem to create a flirty atmosphere. They can be used in so many ways - be it at the cake table, as a cake topper, as reception decor, or at the bridal shower - making bunting one of the most fun wedding decorations. It just works for everything.

Garland, instead, is a string of or wreath of flowers, leaves, or other object-like materials. DIY Flower Garland  A cute trend that is popping up is using paper flower decor and paper flower garland at weddings and bridal showers. Here is a simple step by step tutorial on how to make a paper flower. 1) Gather Materials:

  • Sheets of book paper (or construction, card stock, scrap-booking, or basically any kind of paper)
  • lead pencil
  • paint colors of your choice
  • water cup
  • paint brush
  • scissors
  • hot-glue gun and glue.
2) Draw a swirl on your chosen paper. 3) Cut the swirl out leaving a base for your flower to sit on. 3) With the base at the far end, twist the cut out swirl tightly. 4) Once you have twister the swirl up to the base, place a small dap of glue on the base and then press the twist lightly to the glue and let go slowly allowing the swirl to unfurl. 5) Once you have let the swirl open up to the point that you feel it looks like a flower, press the end and the base together more tightly and apply glue to areas that need help connecting and being secure. 6) If you want your paper to be different colors, before step two paint the sheet of paper. I would recommend watering down the color and lightly saturating the paper so that the paper still twists easily.
