I’m so excited to share our newest addition to the shop…Hodge Podge Birthday Banners!

Piggy Bank Parties Hodge Podge HB Banner

The Hodge Podge Birthday Banners were inspired by two things—a big sister request and The Magnolia Market’s awesome marquee letter sign seen here. A few weeks ago my sister asked me to create a few banners for a church music department event. She knew I didn’t have a lot of extra time because we’re still getting settled into our new apartment and studio so she said, “Just use what you have.”

So I did.

One of my new favorite shows is Fixer Upper on HGTV. I’m inspired by Joanna Gaines’ decorating style and love the fact that she’s head over heels in love with her husband. Such a refreshing view of a couple who works together and one I can relate to!

But I digress.

My point was…Joanna uses a lot of recycled marquee and metal letters in her designs which I adore. All different shapes and colors are used to create a unique display. When I pulled out the “leftovers” stash from recent banners, I had lots of letters and panels but nothing matched.

Why not create banners using all different letter and panel styles and a variety of colors just like those amazing recycled displays Joanna creates?

My sister loved the idea and they turned out so great that I couldn’t wait to add them to the shop! I love that we’re able to recycle the excess materials that would just sit in a storage box until we could find a banner to use them on.
