Bunting In The Village Hall

We all need a bit of colour in our lives don't we?......and I have been wanting to buy some vintage bunting for the Flower Show for ages now. Yesterday the first lot was delivered, and this morning on a glum and overcast Friday , Sailor John , the Show Treasurer and I played around measuring yards of pretty cotton flags from window to window.
I think the bunting is perfect! It will transform the Show back to the 1950s where I want it to be!
Waiting for the drizzle outside to stop, I took a few photos around the Hall, mentally working out where everything was to placed at show time.

  6. Back to the 1950's? Trilbies and Oxford bags. Black and white TV's flickering. Radio announcers with plums in their gobs. Aunt Gladys even more youthful and rationing at the shops. There'll Always be an England...and Wales of course!

  9. It's going to be another successful year. I'm very sorry I didn't have a veggie critter to submit. Apparently last year was the only idea I have about such things.

  12. Love your bunting! I had some colour this morning... beetroot face! Postie seemed a bit taken aback as I opened the door, Probably due to the biscuit crumbs covering my left eyebrow! I had rammed the last biccy in quickly before the dogs saw it, and it exploded slightly. The tales of a greedy person!

  19. Lovely secret shot of Aunt Gladys (delivering a batch of scones??). I love bunting - it jollies the place up no end.

  21. WHERE DID YOU GET THE BUNTING? I need some.
    I love these pictures. Oh John Gray- you do live in a magical place. Thanks for the shot of Auntie Glad especially.

  22. Bunting is a relatively new thing here in the US. I absolutely love it. It all looks so sweet. Rain can't dampen the spirit of the place.

  24. OMG those chairs! To die for!

  25. Drizzle is all we keep getting here ... my potatoes in the veggie patch need RAIN, proper Welsh RAIN ... where is it when you need it. A good downpour overnight for the next two or three nights would be perfect.

    The bunting looks lovely and really will give the hall a very 1950's feel on the day. I hope it's not hanging as low as it looks like it is in the photos or you'll be garrotting a few folk!!

  26. You can't beat a good string of bunting, and that looks like it to me. The hall looks lovely John, will definitely add to the flower shows atmosphere.

  27. Nothing to do with bunting really, but good news from the USA on marriage! Looks as though they're moving into the 21 st century at last!

  30. The old Eisteddfod chairs are magnificent. Judging by the cushion, not too comfortable though.

    cheers, parsnip
