Just recently Sarah was whisked off to New York by her lovely Dean for the purpose of celebrating her 40th!!! birthday, of course this means updating the About Us page!

Anyhoo, here’s some pics of NY and the divine fabric she found…

Where have we been?!!

12 Apr

G’day,

Blink and March has gone! For us here at bunted! HQ, March was full to the brim with birthdays, bunting, holidays, bunting, fabric shopping, bunting, Easter and of course bunting, not forgetting chocolate and hot cross buns…mmmmm.

Now it’s April and guess what?! We still have plenty of bunting to make, some more birthdays and even a burlesque class (giggles, blush…)
Phew! We love it though!

So to recap here’s what you’ve missed…..

bunted! Does The Grasshopper Inn Wedding Showcase

5 Feb
We hope to see you there!

We hope to see you there!

 

Sunday 17th of February will see bunted! attend the Wedding Showcase at The Grasshopper Inn in Moorhouse. We’ll be there in our Sunday finest, ready to answer any of your nuptially based (or not!) bunting enquiries. We may or may not be hijacking boys on the journey there and pretending to be brides ourselves, but we neither confirm nor deny this on the grounds that it may incriminate us…ahem.

We’d love to chat about your wedding, and how we could help you get the look you want for this special day. From full wedding packages, down to a small length of keepsake bunting, we’re there to provide any bunting you want!

Up, up, up and away!

20 Dec

Nothing gets me more in the mood for a little fabric shopping that a 17 hour flight to Australia. Wait…what? I don’t think I’m ever not in the mood for fabric shopping! Not even a long haul flight could put me off!

Earlier this week, the bunted! fairy grandmother took me out to Australian fabric heaven (Spotlight) and we had a little perusal of the delightful wares. Here are the latest additions to the bunted! collection:

20121220_151037

 During Sarah’s last trip to Australia, she managed to nab a super sweet toile fabric, in a nursery rhyme pattern. Sadly, although totally unsurprisingly, loads of lovely bunted! customers fell in love with the fabric and we’ve now totally run out. I though this pale pink toile was just as lovely, and in the same colour spectrum as the nursery rhyme toile, so hopefully you will all love it as much as I do!

20121220_151047

I’ve accidentally gone totally girly and just simply had to have this strawberry and polka dot linen. It’s pretty light for a linen, which makes it sewing-machine-needle-friendly (excellent!). I can see this sandwiched between a mauve floral, and perhaps calico pennants? I am possibly being a tad too optimistic weather-wise, but Spring isn’t too far away, and this would be perfect for garden tea parties in the brand new sunshine, along with some of these pretties:

Tea party extravaganza – don’t forget to invite us! I don’t know if I can bear surrendering this lovely pastel horse fabric over the bunted! HQ….I might have to smuggle this into my personal collection!

horse fabric

Please excuse the wrinkles! Can you see why I adore it? I think it’s so delicate and lovely, feminine without being totally over the top girly. The bunted! fairy grandmother suggested that it would be apropos for an apron, and I must say I agree – can’t you just imagine me flouncing around the kitchen in a ruffled apron with a matching potholder? Must get Sarah to teach me how to make them…

This is too late for Christmas 2012, but next year you could own your very own Dr Seuss Christmas bunting! I stopped short of nabbing the Grinch fabric as well, but there’s still time to sneak back and get it – I’m sure it will fit in the suitcase! Well…reasonably sure…just…

20121220_151157 

I’ve already been a busy bee and made my first batch of bunting out of some of these delights, and pictures will follow. Stay tuned folks, and remember, if you have bought any bunting from bunted! we’d be delighted to see any pictures in situ, or to hear any feedback you may have!

Bonfire Delights

18 Nov

You may have seen that bunted! were recently at Quex Park’s Bonfire Night and so we thought we’d share some snippets of the festive times we had there!

You can see our special new Christmas light bunting, complete with a special pocket to hold the battery pack for the lights!

We’ve still got some of our Summer stock left, and I think they’re perfect for sneaky Christmas presents! Of course our lovely bunting makes great presents too!

One or two of you may be familiar with our favourite friends, the bunted! fairies! Those lovely (and decidedly difficult to catch) little ladies must be working hard to get all the Christmas bunting out in time!

But most excitedly, our latest addition to the bunted! range is our gorgeous advent bunting. 25 pennants complete with felted letters, to be attached to your personalised bias binding with dolly pegs! We love these desperately, and what better way to enjoy the anticipation of Christmas than by using our recyclable advent bunting. We’re happy to customise to your requirements – even adding pouches to include your own advent sweets! Drop us a line at bunted lifestyle@yahoo.com and we can take it from there. Prices vary depending on your requirements.

We had a great time at Quex – although we ever so slightly froze to death, but ne’er mind! Many a hot cup o’ tea was had, and much jollity was had by all. We say BRING ON THE FESTIVE SEASON!

Christmas bells….

18 Nov

I can hear them in the not too distant future….

So! Get your Christmas bunting orders in!
