Ribbon Party Decorations

April 28, 2011

garden party ribbon decoration photos 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. : )

Beautiful! What a simple yet elegant party decoration. I love the light shining through and that iron gazebo is perfect! Can you imagine getting married in there!? I can ; )

Love the final solution. The gazebo/trellis had to be so much fun to stand in after the ribbons were up. Do you get the ribbon online or did you get it there? I would love a great resource for cheap wide ribbon. Thanks!

Agree with Abigail — lovely for an egg hunt, perfect for a wedding. One of the Blair children will have to return one day to La Cressonniere to get married.

Soooo…I am guessing the owners of the house aren’t going to have a difficult time renting this house out in the future!! (of course if that is their intention) (;
