Here is another fun and easy wedding project that will add some real punch to the decor at the reception. I am making banners to hang along the front of the food tables. Since the wedding is in the evening, the food is going to be snacks of a french nature. One of the tables will have a parfait bar! Another will have the cake (gateau) and a third will have other finger foods. I am going to hang the banners with the french words to show which table has what! Above, you see the parfait banner. Parfait means "perfect" in french, so I love the double entendre! (tee hee, also french!)
I foundthese already cut paper banner papers at Michael's in just the right size and color. I also purchased some brown ribbon on sale there. Once again, just like in mytablecloth project, I had to use math. The papers are 5.5 " wide, the tables are 6' long. So for each word, plus two blanks at the beginning and end, I had to multiply 5.5 by that number of papers, leave about an 18 " length of ribbon for attaching (or less, it is up to you) and cut my ribbon that long. Here is how I did it:
This is a quick project that I can finish in a few hours! You could make birthday banners, congrats banners, and all sorts of things! So cute!
PS: This was a busy weekend! Our AC went out! We spent one miserable night here in Phoenix without it! I was so happy with the repairman came that I totally forgot that our living room furniture was also being delivered that day! Whoo Hoo! Here are a few photos! Just 1 week until company starts coming. Now we have a place for them to sit!
