From paper flower garlands to metallic confetti dots strung across pretty strings, garlands add height and drama to your party or wedding! String them across the back of a chair, down a banister, above a doorway, and over a party table.

  1. Loving these garlands. Great mix of DIY garland and garland you can purchase (and a wide range of price points too). So inspired!

  2. I LOVE GARLAND. I found you on another blog and just had to check you out. I use a lot of garlands for my birthday party themes, and you have just given me some great ideas. I am so using the tassels for my tea party theme and the hearts for the valentine’s theme.

    Here’s what I’m going to do with the scraps of fabric garlands…I collect fabric in my travels and use it for different craft projects. I have some silk from China that would be perfect to make some of these, add strings of lights and hang red lanterns for my Asian Birthday Party theme. Thanks.

  3. Thank you for sharing all these beautiful ideas!!! I have used the tassel garland in our last dessert table and it looked great!
