Party Decor Made Easy with Ribbon

Today we are featuring the art of party decor…with ribbon, of course!   Just a little ribbon is an easy way to dress up any party.   We are feauturing two different party decorations that we hope will inspire you to grab some ribbon next time you are planning a party. 

 

First up is Virginia Fynes:

Ribbon Royal Virginia here today to share with you a tidbit about myself.  When not crafting up a storm I also run a small catering business. One of my favorite aspects of the business is planning the tablescapes. This summer I had the opportunity to cater a very unique wedding. It was an early afternoon tea with an Alice in Wonderland theme! It was so cute, and I wanted my décor to fit along with the theme. I scrounged up a few items I had that would be fitting (which meant diving into my Easter box to pull out a Peter Rabbit). With the help of a few May Arts trims I was able to create a bit of whimsical Wonderland décor.

Isn’t Mr. Cottontail handsome with his iridescent blue bow?

I used Crystal string beads to droop out and around the teapot and mimicked the blue bow from the rabbit. A bed of lace made a beautiful stoop for this sweet table décor.

Just a small amount of May Arts ribbon added to the whimsy of this table and added a cute touch (which I’m certain made the food much more tasty!). These ideas would so easily be incorporated into your spring/Easter décor, or just when you want to pretty up a simple vase of wildflowers.

 

Next up up is Courtney Lee:

This is Courtney here and I am excited to share with you some of the details of Emmaline's first birthday party that I think gave it the perfect touch.

I had a color scheme and a light theme in mind (vintage bunny) and went to work! These burlap striped ribbon and paper cord from May Arts made decorating a snap! For me, the ribbon ties everything together at a party (pun intended). I added it just about everywhere (from labels for the drinks to hanging the coffee filter pom poms that I made) and received wonderful comments! Everything in the party was labeled "rabbit food" or "a bunny buffet" or "carrot cupcakes" tying the theme together.

Here is a video showing you how easy it was to make these adorable party favors:

Tips and tricks: be a little daring! This was the first time we brought out the croquet set and it was very difficult to see the wickets. To keep everyone safe, I tied may Arts Ribbon to the tops so everyone could see them and no one would trip! 🙂 The pictures don't do it justice. It really helped! It tied together the party happening on the patio to the croquet on the lawn and I think made it a lot more welcoming.
