Rob Ryan Bunting

Lots of places are selling patriotic Union Jack bunting aimed at the Royal Wedding Street Party market, but I much prefer this Rob Ryan Bunting.

Each of the 15 flags feature one of Rob Ryan’s characteristic folk art style designs and they are certain to have a longer appeal than the more obviously wedding-themed designs. The bunting is sold in a drawstring bag, also decorated with Ryan’s whimsical images.

The bunting costs £25 from Heal’s.

Navy Bunting cardigan by Laura Ashley

Screen shot 2011-04-17 at 19.52.45

Nothing screams springtime and celebrations quite like bunting. The Brits have used any excuse to adorn surfaces left, right & centre with bunting since the 17th century and the recent resurgence of vintage-style street parties has brought it back into the spotlight once again.

How apt then that Laura Ashley, one of the great stalwarts of British fashion, have chosen to adorn this cardigan with bunting embroidery, and just in time for 29th April. It's made of 100% cotton to guard against the cool evening air whilst staying firmly in the party spirit.

£56 from Laura Ashley in store and online.
