The latest big trend on the party styling scene is the paper garland, and in my opinion they’re a welcome change after the much loved but overdone bunting craze. It’s exciting to see paper art taking on new forms, with a plethora of shapes and styles popping up everywhere.
When wanting to jazz up your party, you can’t go wrong with a paper garland really – they’re inexpensive, easy to make and can make a big impact easily. I’ve been super inspired by the creative ideas spotted around so I had to share my favourites with you!
This gold number is an easy crowd-pleaser. Would look great draped down from the ceiling for a wedding reception or NYE party.
Love the shape of these little droplets for something different.
A gorgeous idea for an outdoor party, wedding or draped around the house any time just because. Made from a mixture of tissue paper and regular green paper
This wedding backdrop idea via Martha Stewart is a stroke of genius and I’m in love with the colour and texture combo. Gorgeous! You can pick up these streamers online here.
Cute little idea using honeycomb balls from Oh Happy Day (also take note of the cute tissue paper detail on the cake!)
Lovely delicate flower design using tissue paper
I love a bit of monochrome, and these mixed-pattern leaves are perfection!
Folded geometric-style fans for something different – they almost look like little butterflies.
Such a clever and super simple idea from Oh Happy Day. Just snip into regular ole tissue paper and drape for a statement fringe feature.
Tape paper fans together for an instant pop of wow-factor colour
What’s not to love about 100’s of colourful triangles and circles?!
Such a beautiful leaf design for Autumn with fold lines down the centre for more of a 3D effect
This incredible geometric garland was used as a backdrop for a colourful wedding. Wouldn’t be the quickest project, but day-am it’s sexy! One of my ultimate favourites. Loving the random touches of gold glitter too for extra pizzazz.
Made so many of these paper chains as a kid, but never quite looked this good! Love this juicy colour combo
Stunning leaf design made from sheets from a book + plain paper. Would look great as a wreath for Christmas too.
Another favourite from school days – still going strong!
Recycle your old maps for this sweet little number
Simple but effective
Last but definitely not least, I am in love with this fringed paper garland/almost bunting, especially layered like this.
All I need now is an excuse for a party.. like, now!
