Celebratory bunting and a happy birthday.
Bunting, according to Wikipedia, originated at the “turn of the 17th century, and [was] used for making ribbons and flags, including signal flags for the Royal Navy… Today, “bunting” is a term for any festive decorations made of fabric, or of plastic, paper or even cardboard in imitation of fabric. Typical forms of bunting are strings of colorful triangular flags and lengths of fabric in the colors of national flags gathered and draped into swags or pleated into fan shapes.”
Anyhow, you can check out this incredible diy tutorial for a festive bunting lantern at You had me at bonjour blog. Make it, love it, and perhaps you’ll be kind enough to let me know that I’m not the only American who was clueless for so many years about bunting.
