Garland Tutorials - Party Contributor

Hello there!  I'm Jenn otherwise known as "One Thrifty Chick" as well as the owner of a brand new party business, Posh Parties.  I'm a lover of all things thrifty, and creating lavish events is my specialty! 
Today's post is all about GARLAND!  If I can say there is one major impact to a party, I would have to say Garland. Not only the impact, but the price can be even better!  CHEAP or even free depending on what items you already have.

 There are a number of options out there, and I have put together a great post full of great tutorials!

Let's go back to a few of my parties to start:
The Art Party featured simple paper chains lining the wall behind the main table.  Simple, cheap, and had an amazing impact of the overall design.

For the Army party I created a simple Happy Birthday Flag garland.  This was a no sew garland, all done with hot glue.


The Carnival party was a basic pennant garland.  This was sewn onto standard bias tape.


The Cupcake Party featured the cupcake liner garland.  This was such a fun one, and looked absolutely amazing draped over the wonderful table scape!


Did I come up with all of these ideas?   Well I would love to say yes, but I did not at all!  So here are a couple of great tutorials for you to enjoy!

I love the chain garland! It is a classic but you make it look so stylish!

Great ideas, thank you! I am having a gender reveal party in a couple of weeks and I will for sure use some of these garlands! Thanks! btw: I have a new sewing blog and I'd love for you to check it out. I'm trying to get the word out to fellow sewers and bloggers I follow.
