Welcome Home Baby Banner

Last week our neighbors welcomed a Baby Boy! Each time we brought a new baby home to our neighborhood we had the fortune of having our home decorated by some special people. It was a surprise that I loved each and every time. There is a magic to coming home to welcome signs, blue (or pink) balloons and a showering of love! 

The morning our neighbors came home from the hospital, my kids and I set out on a decorating mission! I had about a 30 minute window to create something and put it up! A few simple supplies made the quick and amazing decorations a breeze!

The welcome home!
I had a spool of retired Grosgrain Ribbon. Perfect tied around the door handle!
Sidewalk Chalk welcome!

DIY Simple Paper Banner:
* Cut Card Stock in half to  5 1/2" x 8 1/2"
* Snip a "V" into the bottom edge of the card stock
(quick tip: Use your scoring tool and angled plate to get a perfect 45 angle)
* Use brads in each corner to attached the flags together
* Finish with some Bakers Twine on the ends to hang up

Krista's Color Scheme:
 * Whisper White
* Soft Sky
* Bermuda Bay
* Basic Gery
* Smoky Slate
* Island Indigo

My favorite part of the Simple Banner is that you can quickly and easily create this too! Minimal tools, no mess and little fuss! I did it in about 20 minutes. 

Creating a surprise always feels amazing! I kept peeking out the window all afternoon, waiting on pins and needles for them to get home! I think we all need a little surprise now and then. Every day is worth celebrating! 

Thank-you for visiting my blog. Have a creative day!
