Have you see the Easy Entertaining piece in the August issue of Living? As we were chanelling the flavors and ease of Mexico, I turned to this great vendor for Mexican banners.
Mexevents.com in San Fransisco has an amazing selection of Mexican banners - wonderful shapes, sizes and colors for whatever occasion you are celebrating. I particularly loved the Papel Picado Banner in large. I ended up using the chocolate color and embellishing the garland by tying on a bit of seam binding.
I also wrapped single pieces of the garland around a large and small votives as an extra touch.
