Have you seen all the lovely bunting springing up in shop windows, on Christmas trees and in period UK dramas? It’s everywhere at the moment and it’s so cute and festive!
Here’s what the Wikipedia Gods have to say about bunting:
Today, “bunting” is a term for any festive decorations made of fabric, or of plastic, paper or even cardboard in imitation of fabric. Typical forms of bunting are strings of colorful triangular flags and lengths of fabric in the colors of national flags gathered and draped into swags or pleated into fan shapes.
