or table setting -

Left hand side: straws available from here and, on the right: "Yay!" flag and Omiyage

something above the ordinary, flags are a lot of fun when it comes to decorating.

My favourite type of flags though are those of the bunting variety. 

Indoors -

Creature Comforts

or out -

Clockwise from the top left: Not on the High Street, Bay Tree Interiors, Unabashed Bliss, Kate Landers Events and Planet Stencil Library

They are such a simple yet effective way to turn things simple -

Top row: Oh! Crafts and Imprintables, Bottom row: Wedding Bee and Cabbages and Roses

into those which are truly special.

Happy weekend and I hope you enjoyed having a little fun with flags on this very sunny Friday!

  1. Hello Stephie:
    Flags, in the ways in which you show them here, are most certainly great fun.

    We are less sure when they are adopted for military or nationalistic purposes, the two often going hand in hand.

    Jó hétvégét.

  2. I hadn't thought of that Jane and Lance but you are right - some flags make my blood run cold. It's funny how they become symbols of things sinister.

    Happy weekend to you too - any house hunting happening?!

    I love the little flags on straws or on cakes. Such a clever way to make your party festive.

    I hope you have a great weekend.
