Nothing gets me more excited that making party decor! Last weekend I had the honor to host one a shower for a dear and close friend. Since it was at our beloved local Mexican restaurant, I kept the decor low key and simple (which on a side note was such a brilliant idea on my part. I usually spend days prepping for hosting parties to only have to clean again the minute the guests leave and the costs were about the same even after feeding the masses a Mexican buffet!). Anyway, my decor was simple and fun and fit the bill perfectly!
In making the banner, I kind of pulled out the kitchen sink of supplies starting with wood banner pennants I scored from Pick Your Plum and then I found my new love in paper lines, Adornit – Rough and Tough! Adding some clothesline, material burlap, ribbon and embellishing the woodcuts from Adornit and PYP with Heidi Swapp Color Shine and Globecraft and Piccolo Gels. I cut the lettering with my Cricut using Platin Schoolhouse and ran those and all my layers (yes even the burlap and ribbons) through my 5 inch Creative Station adhesive machine from Xyron.
I love when banners come together as easy as this one! It was a hit and a cherished gift for the soon-to-be family of three!
