Ribbon as a table runner?

I can think of so many variations on this idea.
  • Table names matched to ribbon colour
  • Same coloured-ribbon in different patterns on each table
  • Matching the ribbon to a family plaid pattern

Sawyer and Sprout is open for business

I keep seeing all these super fabulous items on the blogosphere but getting them in Canada is so difficult! So I have spent the last few months hunting down some of my favourite party-related items so that other Canadians -- heck, anyone! -- can get their hands on them. 

Visit my new little shop on Big Cartel: Sawyer and Sprout

I've started with 36" latex balloons in five colours. Wooden utensils are next. Then cupcake accessories like flags and bunting.

36" ruby red balloon, $4.75

In Ottawa, like Toronto, we have a green bin to collect compostable/biodegradable items. My goal is that once you are done with your newly purchased goods that you can simply toss them in the green bin.

Why balloons are AWESOME

You may not know this, but I like balloons.

I like small balloons. I like big balloons. I like metallic balloons. I like chains of balloons. I like balloons of all kinds, shapes and sizes.

Why are balloons so fabulous?
  1. They come in all shapes and sizes.
  2. People giggle at the sight of them.
  3. They are unexpected.
  4. They make a gathering a party!
