Whether you’re planning a rustic-chic, homespun affair, or a nautically oriented celebration, bunting is a festive way to turn any space into a great place to party. These colorful, relatively simple strung-up flags have become so prevalent, you can use them to decorate pretty much anything, from an old oak tree to the rafters of a barn; brides are even fashioning miniature versions into personalized wedding-day accessories. And every couple’s names somehow just look cuter when presented in bunting; there’s an “Aww” moment in seeing “Jane & John” hanging from the backs of chairs or blowing in the breeze over a table full of favors and place cards.
We pulled together the prettiest—and did we mention easy-to-DIY—bunting inspiration Pinterest has to offer.
Use it as signage.
Use it with your cake.
Try it from ceiling rafters for a bit of color against wooden beams.
Or create a sweet(er) ceremony.
When it comes to fall nuptials, we’ve seen it all in terms of floral arrangements: burgundy roses flanked by orange oak leaves, and rust-colored zinnias nestled among purple eucalyptus. While jewel tones reminiscent of the season’s changing colors are inspiring, why not look to the autumn’s harvest for a fresh take on a seasonal tablescape?
Apples, pumpkins, cabbage flowers, and artichokes come in all shades and ranges of colors, and can be surprisingly chic decor for a nuptial feast, even those with more formal overtones. We’ve culled the best of what Pinterest has to offer in the way of centerpieces featuring fruits and veggies, from persimmons to cabbage.
