A Banner Day!

I have no curtains in my house! *Gasp*  We just don't know how long we will stay in this little place and curtains always seem like such a commitment.  So custom for that window in that house.  So I have been checking out some alternatives.

Where else do I go for inspiration but etsy.com of course!  I saw these fabulous flag banner by etsy seller Pamwares (or bunting as it is often called) and thought for around $30 that may be a cute little way to dress up our bedroom windows.

I also love this idea for birthdays or weddings.  The amazing, insanely talented Amy Atlas shared some dessert tables she created for Brides magazine with HWTM blog.  Check out how cute a bunting would look hung over a food table at a party.

 And finally this morning when I was checking out a few blogs, I saw Who What Wear's Look of the Day. And what do you know, this  tribal inspired Pamela Love necklace that the stylish Rachel Bilson was sporting reminded me of these pretty flag banners too!

 Hey, maybe I could redesign that into a festive birthday invitation.  Let's go ahead and follow Rachel Bilson's lead and use her color scheme of red, nude and bronze. Borrow Pamwares and Amy Atlas idea of using bunting as a decorating theme and drop these little treats in the mail!


Ooops I just hit submit on my payment for the flag bunting. Hope my husband doesn't mind!
