Bunting – A Guide On Choosing And Using

Bunting Fun, Fun, Fun

Is there any other product that says: ‘Celebration!’ ‘Fun!’ ‘Party!’ more?  If there is, we can’t think of one and believe us we’ve tried.  Just the very word ‘Bunting’ conveys images of memorable days, get togethers and collective happiness. We think it’s just fab’ and is just the thing to make your good times simply great.

It’s not just for street parties

Everyone’s classic image of bunting is when we’re all having a great British street party.  Usually strung round lampposts and fences along a suburban street. Always in patriotic red, white and blue, fluttering in the breeze as a neighbourhood celebrates a jubilee, royal wedding or birthday. Oh the nostalgia.  

However, there are so many more occasions where this colourful addition can make our lives so much better. When well-displayed it can transform virtually any occasion into a bright, colourful spectacle. What ’s more, it’s such a simple idea we’re surprised you haven’t thought about it already. All you need is some handy poles and fences to hang the garlands, a colour scheme that’s meaningful and everything else will fall into place. Promise!

So I can use bunting for other events?

Of course, you can. Our party bunting will elevate any kind of event be it: a wedding, a garden party, a landmark birthday, a corporate event or even an outdoor concert. Simply put some up and see your occasion transform.

Naturally, as you’ve come to expect from The Stripes Company, we have put our trademark stripy spin on our own range of cotton buntings. With our version, vibrant colour is everywhere as you have come to expect and all of a sudden, the versatility reaches new levels.  

It’s not that we don’t like traditional red, white and blue, we do. We even have our special take on this colour scheme called ‘Jubilee’ made from our boxing interior striped fabric. It’s perfect for  celebrations, the coronation of a carnival queen or any royal events in the pipeline they’re not telling us about!
Not forgetting any National sporting fixtures that need supporting.

We also love our vibrant Multi Stripe, Gingham and Ikat versions too. With such a wide range, you can match your choice to the colour scheme of your event.  What about pink gingham for a baby girl’s christening? Why not try our best selling multi-stripe for a fancy dress party or Ikat for an outdoor concert of an up-and-coming rock band.

You could even have a favourite team’s colours to personalise a ‘big’ birthday. It will work for all of these occasions and much more. Of course, you could just go bonkers and mix and match from our colourful selection to create a huge technicolour splash. That would be brilliant!

We also have plain coloured bunting but its not plain at all – its full of different colours of the Rainbow, 18 flags worth!rainbow bunting

You can also make it unique by sewing PomPoms on to it to make PomPom Bunting!

We have a sewing kit to do just that

We can guarantee it that will look simply fabulous and add that sensational stripy lift. So what are you waiting for? Get some up and start celebrating!
