The wedding season is getting into full swing and we were delighted to get these photos of our bunting at a recent wedding a few weeks ago. The wedding reception was held in a marquee and as you can see, it was beautifully decorated.
The bespoke bunting in this marquee was our pick your colours two ply fabric bunting. There were two different sets of 3 colour bunting made up in custom lengths to fit the venue requirements.
The pennant size was also made extra long to order with the flags being approx. 1 foot long (30 cm) which gives a very pleasing effect.
The 2 ply fabric bunting has pennants which have two thicknesses of fabric sewn together, the flags are then turned inside out and ironed. Although making this bunting takes over twice the material and about three times the work to make compared to the equivalent 1 ply bunting, it has the advantage of having a more solid colour, as light doesn't travel through the pennant as much as the 1 ply bunting. There is also the advantage that the 2 ply pennants have more weight and therefore the bunting tends to hang better, especially important if it is hung outdoors.
We are looking forward to all the custom orders the summer will bring.

EU Bunting are able to offer a range of bunting in over 30 different plain colours. A lot of our bunting tends to be alternating colours, however in some cases single colour bunting is very effective. In circumstances such as school sports days, team building events, etc. our single colour bunting can identify separate team areas aiding event organisation. You can pick the colours you wish from either our stock products such as red bunting , yellow bunting and so on or you can use our pick your colours bunting and select your required colour. Our bunting flags are made from woven polycotton fabric and our bunting tape is 100% cotton. This has the advantage over pvc bunting and plastic bunting which tends to be very noisy, especially in coastal settings and breezy conditions.

Spring (bunting) was in the air at the Country Living Spring Fair 2018 held at the Alexandra Palace in London from 26 to 29 April 2018. The Country Living Spring Fair is renowned for it's wide selection of stalls covering homewares, gifts, food and drink, crafts, fashion and lots more. Bunting colours this year were pastels, comprising lemon, pink, mint green and lilac. With the Alexandra Palace being a very grand venue, the use of stands to hang the bunting on were very effective. We hope that everyone that visited the fair had a great time.
