When I first received my invitation for a dear friend's bridal shower, I knew I wanted to create something special to mark the occasion. After brainstorming for a few moments I decided to make a banner for the party complete with ribbons and bows. I think Shayla will be happy with the combination of petal pink, sweet polka dots, and crisp stripes. If you are interested in putting together a banner of your own for your next soiree, here's how!
- Colored paper
- Assortment of Ribbon
1: Cut the colored paper into triangles and label each with an individual letter to spell out a catch phrase.
2: Using a hole punch, puncture holes into the corners of each triangle.
3: Take a long strand of ribbon and weave it back and forth thru the triangles as photographed below.
4: Using an array of ribbon tie bows in between each triangle.
5: Hang garland on a wall or shelf using tacks or tape.
It's pretty endearing right?!

Yesterday was Shayla's bridal shower and the event was a true celebration of her life taking the next next big (and exciting!) turn. Us girls celebrated in true Shayla style in fancy dresses, nibbling on petite tea sandwiches, and sipping strawberry mimosas. Of course everything had to be pink, much like all of the appliances in our old kitchen (Remember that apartment that we shared as mere teenagers Shay?). I've been so blessed to have Shayla in my life as a long time friend and I couldn't be more excited to congratulate her and Brian on their upcoming nuptials!
