Hooray for bunting!

Bunting has pretty much taken over wedding world, as trends go, and it’s no surprise. Such a small touch, but it makes such a big difference. Just looking at those little flags makes me feel festive and happy. Here’s a roundup of some (many!) of my favourites – hope they inspire you or at least brighten up your day!

How can you not adore this super colourful set? LOVE!
