I love the look of paper flags draped around a room, outside from tree to tree, or even as the backdrop to a dinner or dessert buffet. There’s something sweet and festive about the idea and it creates instant party ambiance.
Jump over to this quick tutorial for detailed step-by-step directions from Project Wedding to create your own.
Tissue paper cut into rectangles, glue and string are the only materials needed for this quick version (perfect for a Memorial Day picnic!).
Wrap your newly created bunting around an empty gift wrapping paper roll or paper towel roll for easy storage and transportation. This would be perfect for a birthday, shower or even wedding (image strings of soft whites and creams hung around an outdoor venue). Can’t wait to try it out.

You may have heard of these delicious creations… but I had to share the confectionery delights because they are making my mouth water right now.
Baked inside a crispy cone, these individual desserts combine the perfect sundae (toppings and all) with the moist, deliciousness of a birthday cupcake. It’s a no-drip, no-plate & utensil solution for the perfect kid’s party treat.
It’s as easy as pouring a bit of batter into each cone, baking and decorating.
For the complete directions (including just how to bake such an unusually shaped dessert), follow the jump. Read more »
