How to Hang Bunting

edit this one

thanks to the “beautiful bunting” site in UK for great article

Hanging Bunting

You will need points to attach your bunting to. Each length has a long tie at both ends and is concertina folded in the box to enable you to unfold the bunting as you hang it from the box.

Tie up throughout the length using the ties provided. Good on marquees, gazebos, round the house etc.

You can also use pegs, masking tape, metal ties – anything that won’t damage or mark the bunting. (Please no staples, blu tack or tape that leaves a residue.)

Guidelines on how to pack and return the bunting will be provided with each hire. We provide these guidelines to follow so that we can ensure each subsequent hire retains the same high quality and ease of hanging that you were provided with.

A couple of nice shots this week from New York City from my camera.  Just for fun!

What is Bunting, or Garland, or Pennants?

My sister told me about bunting, I’ve been in the States so long that I hadn’t heard that term in years.  But darned if I could find what it’s called here.  I googled, I searched eBay, Amazon, Etsy, nothing came up except for sites in England and Australia.   After many hours at this, inbetween work (photographing, typing, eating, calling tech support – ughh), I finally came upon the term here, it’s pennant flags.  Or even garland.

So when I did finally find those sites, there wasn’t much to look at except sports flags, national flags and the awful plastic flags you see flying around used car lots.  No, nothing lovely like back home.  Sweet bunting that can be hung at the beach house, or in the garden on a summer’s eve.  And, not forgetting beautiful weddings and celebrations.

Until now.
