DIY Bridal Brunch Banner

My brothers fiancĂ©e had her bridal shower last Saturday and it was a lovely event. 

Event planning is one of my favorite things to do, I realized this as I was planning my own wedding. I love to get creative and add my own little touch to things. Since the theme for the shower was a bridal brunch and there were bottomless mimosas, it seemed appropriate to make a banner saying, “Drink up darling”.  

So that’s what I did. I bought the banner at Michaels, it was a pack of 11 (I believe) which came with the yarn to hang it. I loved this one because I had never seen anything like it. It had a rustic feel but was also elegant because of the shape. The letters were from the target dollar spot.  

The letters that spell out “darling” were originally white but I used a glue stick and some glitter (Martha Stewart brand, from Michaels)  to make them a little prettier.

I had to use a hot glue gun to make sure the letters stuck. Then I used a light pink tissue paper to make two flowers, one for each end of the banner. (I’ll make a tutorial for that some other time, as I forgot to take pictures this time) 

It was super easy to make aside from glittering some of the letters which was pretty messy. But I’m sure you could find letter that are already glittery at Michaels and skip that step. 

If you want to make the banner you’ll need:

  • The banner kit from Michaels
  • The letters from target
  • A hot glue gun
  • A glue stick
  • Glitter 
  • Pink tissue paper
  • Scissors
