Ribbons make me happy - guest post by You Stir Me

26 April 2011

Hi lovelies! My name is Laura and I am so excited to be poppin' in from You Stir Me today to share some pretty with you! Let's get right to it, shall we? Lately I have been inspired by ribbons, especially when used in very creative ways. I have always thought ribbons add a touch of whimsy to any ol' day. Just take a look at some of these ideas and you'll see what I mean:

via celebrations at home

I absolutely love how a simple detail like adding tons of ribbons and streamers to a rod can completely transform a beautiful dessert table.

And then there is this beauty. How much fun would this be to have at your wedding? I think every formal affair needs a ribbon swing, don't you?

via the sweetest occasion

I think a ribbon chandelier would look perfect in a little baby's room, but for now, it might have to hang above my craft desk!

via oh joy

Ah, the details. Drink flags drive me crazy. Drink flags made out of ribbons? Well, that's just insane.

via pretty stuff

In my perfect world, every chair would be decorated with ribbons. First impressions are everything, right?

If I had seen this idea before I walked down the aisle, I would have grabbed one of our ribbons from our cake table backdrop and tied it around my leg. Just genius. 

Of course, with all these ribbons, you'll need a snazzy way to store them all! I love finding creative storage ideas just by walking around my house and using what I already have; here's what I managed to rig up for some of my ribbons:

I took an old wire basket, threaded a wood skewer through the top, through my ribbons and then out the other side. Way too easy, right? I love when it's just that simple.

If you weren't in love with ribbons before, I hope I've made you a believer today! And, if you're in the mood for some more inspiration skip on over to my little blog, You Stir Me, and say hi!

Oooh I love the ribbons tied on the back of chair. It adds an element of fun and reminds me of ribbons tied on little girls' bicycle handle bars. Love it!
