Inspiration Aisle: Paper Streamers

6 Sep

Cheap, easy to source and beautiful in both mouth-watering colours or ivories and whites. What’s not to love?

I’d recommend sticking to a strict colour palette – loving the citrus and royal blue:

Or just going for plain white and neutrals to add interest and texture ( (Yes, we’ve sneaked a couple of our own wedding photos in. Again.)

In the UK you can pick up streamers and paper garlands for a song in most colours. I sourced mine from from The Pub Shop, where 85ft of coloured streamers costs £1.10 and 4 metres of paper garlands costs £2.85. Go nuts, but don’t go crazy with colour, otherwise your venue might end up looking like a 5-year old’s birthday party.

On second thoughts, I could definitely cope with this!
