SELF MADE: Porch Party Bunting
Our front porch is a shared entrance for us & our upstairs neighbours & had become a dumping ground for miscellaneous stuff. I’ve been spending some time & a little bit of money making it look and feel like an intentional place to relax.
I’ve always loved Desiree’s approach to outdoor space & especially her front-porch bunting. Even in the middle of winter her house looks like it is party-ready – like something special is happening inside.
I didn’t realize until just now that she had written up a tutorial about how she & her little one made their bunting happen.
I used about a yard of this chartreuse and grey paisley fabric that I ripped into 1″ wide strips. Then I looped the strips around a length of jute rope. Then I hung everything on my porch using little finishing nails. No problem.
Bunting is abundant in hipster blogland. But that’s because bunting is awesome? I’m trying to quiet my knee-jerk reaction of automatically disliking anything that gets too popular.
Sipping sangria under these things feels breezier & makes your day feel a bit like a special occasion. Nothing wrong with any of that.
