garden party ribbon decorationphotos by Paul Ferney

Because the garden here is so beautiful, pretty much the only thing I added for party decorations was ribbon. Lots of it! I bought seven rolls of inexpensive double-sided satin ribbon and hung it everywhere. In doorways and arches. On garden structures and the welcome bike. On easter baskets and in hair.

Here are some of my favorite ribbon-y images from the party (and from the party prep). They look like Spring!

On the day of the party, I was at the store with my sister picking up paper goods and Jordan spotted bamboo butterfly nets for 1 euro each. So we bought a few for the kids to use while they chased around the garden — and added ribbon to the handles, of course. There weren’t many butterflies, but they sure looked cute. : )
