Theme Thursday: Rainbows

I did a post a couple of weeks ago about My Little Pony, and it include a couple of rainbow ideas… but I found so many more great rainbow projects, I just had to devote an entire post to the subject!

First up, from the Purple Pug, an post full of Rainbow goodness.  I love how many different ways they used rainbows – a true theme party!

How to Make a Bunting Banner For Your Fall Party

It’s not Tuesday, but I have a Tuesday Trend for you anyway!  What is it, you ask?  (Well, I sort of gave it away in the title of the post).

It’s BUNTING!  Or Bunting Banners.

They… are everywhere.

So, what is bunting, you ask?  Traditionally, bunting has been used at political rallies and for patriotic events, like the 4th of July.  You’ve seen them – flag banners that hang as a decoration on walls or table tops – usually just triangular pieces of fabric, used as decorative swag. But, we’ve come a LONG way from the traditional red, white, and blue versions.

The bunting banners of today are perfect for party decorations, holiday decorations, or just lovely decor for your home!  And you know you want to make one, right?

Here is a great DIY Bunting Banner Tutorial from Dream Book Design perfect for November:
