Party banner

One of my nearest and dearest friend's, Susan, owns her own business called "The Day...Your Way". She help plan weddings, wakes, bday parties, etc....and when I mean plan, that means she works with and for you from initial meeting, until the last crumb is swept away! This leaves you to ENJOY your party and guests!
I follow both her blogs regularly and get the best party ideas, recipes, and I love reading the her authentic posts on family and life!

Anyway...I digress.
Susan asked me to make a banner for her for her business. I had made one for her earlier for Valentine's Day:

Well, the only suggestion was that it be a green color that matched her brochure:
Well...I don't know if anyone else is like me, but I swear I spend more time trying to find the "right" material, than I do if I would have made 5 projects. I narrowed it down to 2, then ended up making both because I liked the polka dots, and my daughter liked the cupcakes (even though they didn't show up in the background, she thought the colors were better and brighter)!:

And the finished banners:


  1. Wow, these look great! I love the decorative stitching! Maybe you could share how you made these?!


  2. They looked awesome at my vendor booth yesterday!! Thanks, Jo!! I will send you a picture.
    P.S. The banner looked so cute, one little old lady wanted to buy it!!! :)
