Anticipation & party preparation is half the fun.  To simplify decorations, create classy, cute reusable linens & pennant streamers:

A project for any holiday that conserves resources & relieves right brain energies.  Plus, engaging in traditions solidifies family connections.


  1. decide on runner & napkin size, & pennant quantity 
  2. have fun searching for fabrics!  (3 or 5 or 7 different yet coordinating – the yardage depends on #1, typically 1/2 to 1 yard per fabric will do, with runner requiring more)
  3. cut & hem runner & napkins
  4. for pennant streamers purchase ribbon or rope/cording – think about where the streamers may go, measure accordingly to calculate how much to purchase
  5. cut fabrics into triangles or diamonds (same size or varied) with pinking shears
  6. place & space pennant triangles on ribbon, fold ribbon over flat edge & sew (the ribbon width will be halved for this method)
  7. OR,  fold diamond over ribbon or cord & sew on to ribbon or right next to cord (using zipper foot)
