Bunting and party kit

Bunting is such a traditional part of a British street party, it's practically compulsory! A burst of colourful flags will transform your street and the more there are, the better. See our Street Party Guide for Residents for advice on how to organise a party.

History of bunting

The use of bunting developed from street dressing which is the origin of street parties. Street dressing at some unknown early time came to be dominated by what we now call bunting. This is usually made of strings of triangular 'pennants' which were probably originally based on naval signal flags. See more detail here.
