Bunting has become a rather ubiquitous accessory for party decorating in the past few years. From weddings to baby showers to backyard barbecues, bunting can be found framing doorways or strung between trees, flapping in the breeze. Don't get me wrong — I still love bunting. I'm just craving something a little different. My first choice for an alternative to triangular bunting is this Hanging Lace Tassel Garland ($64). Made in Sweden, this lovely hanging lace garland is comprised of 21 delicate lace tassels. Each tassel is made from strips of lace that has been individually hand cut, bundled together, and fastened to a silky ivory, double-sided, thick satin ribbon.

Brooklyn dwellers and other fans of brownstone buildings will likely love this Illustrated Brownstone Houses Banner ($23). This paper banner is made from original illustrations and features seven brownstone and tenement-style houses, which are joined by brass fasteners. It's printed on 110-lb. card stock, so it'll stand up to wear and tear. Can you imagine how perfect it would be for a housewarming party?
