A friend of mine who is also a bride to be, getting married in November this year, and I went to a wedding fayre at a venue near us.
The wedding fayre was my first ever fayre, and to be honest it wasn’t great. I’ve heard people talk about a lot better wedding fares; however I did get a really good idea!
In the reception room at the evening they had tables laid out with flowers and stationary examples and the supplies of those flowers and stationary were also in the room.
One table really stood out for me!
The colour theme of the table was Orange, Yellow and Blue – not exactly to my liking – but I loved the paper pinwheels and the bunting idea for the menu’s.
Here is a close up of one of the bunting menu’s on the table. Although I loved the pinwheels, my budget wouldn’t really allow me to bring in yet another dimension to the wedding, but the bunting for the menu really inspired me!
So while making the bunting as discussed in my previous post we decided to make some bunting for the menu and the place names.
What you will need:
- fabric cut into bunting triangles (to see how to do this see my previous post.)
- Bunting line
- Sowing machine
- Craft Glue
With your chosen card draw triangles onto the card to the designed size. We chose to make our triangles a good size but still smaller than the fabric triangles.
Then cut these out. We used A4 paper, folded the paper in half and drew the triangle going down from the folded side.
This meant that we could write the place-name on the top side, and open up the triangle of card to write the menu on the inside.
You will then want to sow the bunting triangles onto the bunting line. Which is quite easy especially if you have been sowing loads of bunting already.
Simply pin the bunting triangle onto the bunting line and sow.
Due to wedding guest list issues we haven’t got much further than this, and we do need to confirm the menu with the venue, however, once you’ve sown your bunting and written your menu and/or place settings onto your card attach your card to your bunting with craft glue.
Here is a mock-up of the card part.
