As the name of my blog indicates, I spend a lot of time thinking about home. Of course, my Heavenly Home is the one that is eternal, so that’s where I need to lay up my treasures, and that’s the one I’m striving for. But in the meantime, I have been given this tiny piece of the here-and-now—this nearly six-acre tract of land, this farmhouse, this domain—in which to serve Him. And, though this is in the earthly realm, I want the things that happen here to be investments in the Heavenly realm.

CeLeBRaTe!! {Day 14 ~ Party Buntings and a Giveaway}






A few years ago, I fell in love with buntings!

A bunting says "CeLeBRaTe!!"
A bunting is a show-stopper. It's usually the first thing you notice in the party room.


I made one for a special birthday celebration, using the colors in the party plates and napkins.




Kati repurposed this same bunting to fit the Cute as a Button theme for the baby shower she gave for her friend Britni.




Last spring, I made a new one for Bekah's 12th birthday party.




When we freshened up Bekah's room in July, the bunting found a new home on her wall.



For our nautical themed Father's Day celebration this summer, we made a bunting from scrapbook paper and twine.





Today, I am opening up a giveaway for a fall bunting!

You could hang this bunting at an autumn birthday party.
(We gave it a test run at my dad's birthday party yesterday.)

You could use this fall bunting to decorate for any autumn bash.

You could even hang it somewhere in your house just to celebrate fall!


If you'd like to win this fall bunting,
simply leave a comment at the end of THIS post saying you want to have your name in the hat (or brown stoneware bowl).

You have until 5 pm on Thursday to enter your name.
I'll have Ron choose a name, and I'll announce the winner on Friday!



This is Day 14 in the series CeLeBRaTe!!  Click ~here~ to see more.

  4. Adorable! I'd love to have my name tossed into the cap. I was going to make a bunting for our recent party and plum ran out of time. It would have been cut from some cheesy plastic autumn tablecloth from the dollar store and not one bit as pretty as this.

  14. Might as well add my name. :-) I made a bunting for Brian's mom's party in the spring. I used scrapbook paper and a zigzag stitch on the sewing machine.

  20. Oh, yes, I would love to have my name in the bowl! I am also a fan of buntings. We have one that we use to celebrate our daughters' birthdays, but I love the idea of a seasonal one.

    Thank you for your great "31 Days" series. After following your series for the last couple of years, I knew I didn't want to miss this one. This is a busy season for our family, and you are the only 31 Days blogger I am following this year!
