It’s always a delight to make bunting for ‘Happy Couples’ especially when I’ve known the groom’s family for many years. The added bonus with this banner came when it was completed and I needed to ‘hand it over’. Any excuse to meet up with friends again after so long and have lunch together! Bunting, balloons and flowers! One conservatory all dressed and ready to celebrate!
Can you imagine how delighted I was to be asked to create this banner for a Diamond Wedding Anniversary party? My friend chose the colours to match those worn by her Mum’s bridesmaids 60 years ago.
This was the first time that I had attempted a lace overlay flag but when I saw the fabric, I could just visualise it looking really good with the dark burgundy underneath.
Winter is fast approaching but the sunflowers that were used throughout this wedding, are a reminder of warmer and sunnier days. I searched long and hard to find a suitable fabric for this special banner but I was pleased with the finished product, as were the Bride and Groom!!
Today, on their 3rd Wedding Anniversary, I have the privilege of sharing the picture that inspired
‘Heathers Bunting’ to be born …
… my VERY FIRST bunting project!
Then just two weeks later, the first ‘named’ banner that I ever made, was used for another friends’ wedding.
Each one will always be personal to the individual couple. xxx
And two years later … another one! A beautiful day for a great couple!
Every wedding is unique, so every banner or any bunting with always be made to the requirements of the happy couple. Who’ll be next?
Well, the next celebration couldn’t have been more different!! I was asked to make this bunting for a Vintage ‘Afternoon Tea’ Wedding. They wanted it to surround a photo booth for their guests and the request for ‘hessian’ to be included was a challenge, as it had to be lined!!
This photograph shows a little of how they displayed and used it.
…… to this!!!! Stunning!
I cannot tell you how delighted I was to see the finished result of my work for the Summer of 2013! When you are working on individual flags, it can sometimes be hard to visualise the finished effect that they will bring and often it is only the customer who has the ‘final picture’ in their minds. But I love to see how couples choose to celebrate their special day and for this couple, I am proud of the part that I was able to play in bringing it all together for them.
A selection of photos showing the hall being prepared with all 75m of bunting!! The party, a barn dance, was a great success! This type of bunting is ideal to help create atmosphere at such events.
Our band, http://www.haylayers.com , were outstanding and I can fully recommend them!!
