Ribbons of Dreams

If you are planning any DIY project for your wedding, or just need some glorious ribbons, sequins or trim for your programs or napkins, Threadart is the site to check out. They stock a gazillion colors of silk and satin ribbon, organzas, threads, appliques, fringes, and all the tools you’ll need to put those beauties to work. My favorite is the hand dyed silk ribbon. Available in a myriad of colors, it would be beautiful to tie your programs, decorate your napkins, festoon your bridesmaids gifts (or your bridesmaids, for that matter), or accent your invitations.  These beautiful ombre and variegated ribbons are dyed by hand, which adds a richness and character that can not be duplicated by machine. Many of the color combinations have an lush antique feeling. “Sage Meadows” is an evocative and smoky mix of celedon greens, peach and greys; “Sunrise Burst” gives you a tropical feeling with fuscia, purple, and orange.  Their selections may even compel you to rethink your color scheme (although “Lemon Surprise” and “Maize” will cover you for yellow, this years wedding color!
