... and today its pennants on parade. I have taken my love of pennant banners to a new height, and all at the request of my new daughter-in-law.
Brittney had seen banners at my home for holidays and parties, and even for everyday decor ... she had also visited the antique mall and seen the banners I had done there. She asked me to make pennant banners to label her food stations at the fun breakfast reception she had planned for her wedding to my youngest son. Above is her 'toast bar'. To the left is an enlargement of a couple of the pennants. All made with a variety of old printed pages of all different kinds, varied lacy trims and a great Graphics Fairy medallion with a letter stamped inside. Did you notice the love birds atop the medallion?
I made each pennant seperately and then clipped them to a length of seam binding. Now I will have 80+ pennant letters to put together to decorate future events!!
This is the Biscuits and Gravy station, set up on a darling antique pink table that I rented at 3 Dotters Vintage Rentals. Jenn is a flea market friend with amazing taste in fun and chippy furniture.
The bathtub shown filled with ice and mason jars full of drinks with funky straws was borrowed from a neighbor who had it in her garden. Boy, that goes way beyond borrowing a cup of sugar, don't you think? Thanks Raelene!
I also brought along the vintage grocery cart that I bought at fleattitude a couple of weeks ago, and Brittney's brother suggested we use it in the dish drop area! So brilliant!
Brittney's Aunt Karen also did some pennant banners, decorating an old chest as a 'welcome sign' and another over the 'perfect match' favors!
This charming pink door was another find at 3dotters.
Here's a full view of the sweet mini Hoosier that houses the toast bar.
Another of Aunt Karen's banners decorates the back drop for the wedding party. Below the bride and groom are shown opening gifts, with family and friends, in front of it.
I also loved this detail. Brittney's Aunt Karen asked me to find an antique key for this display ... I chose this one from about a hundred I have on hand because of its awesome patina ... but how fun is it that it almost perfectly matches the key she has stamped on her tag sign!?
Now life gets back to normal ... oh and I also get to spend a bit of time putting back all the antiques into the store and my home that had their moment of glory at the wedding reception!!
Wecome to the family Brittney! I LOVE your style!
