It’s a Christmas Banner Day!

Hello, Friends!

I don’t know about you, but I have fallen head over heels with banners!  They make any occasion feel more festive…even the every day ones!  But when you combine beautiful Really Reasonable Ribbon with gorgeous vintage Christmas papers and you string it up in your home….well, it’s a banner day! To be more specific, it’s a Christmas Banner Day!

Vintage Christmas BannerI used  a 3 foot length of RRR Natural Mesh Ribbon as the anchor for my individual pennants.  To make it feel extra festive, I  decorated the end pieces with red and white wavy vertical stripe ribbon and Emily White Crochet lace to add a touch of vintage sweetness. to my Christmas banner.

Thanks for stopping by!
