Not quite a customer created ribbon combination, but with the orders for these two ribbons coming back to back, I had to check to make sure they weren’t ordered by the same person since they go so well together! At the right is the all cotton “Wine Bottles and Grapes”, to the left, “Gelato Eggplant”. Gelato comes in a large number of colors, which you can see here.
Surprise, surprise, Navy Blue takes three of the top five spots on the favorite ribbons list for May! Somehow, Iced Plum “Charisma” snuck in there and the large white jingle bell held its own but Navy was the big winner for views in the Cottage Crafts Etsy shop.
Of course, Navy is popular for Americana and patriotic decor, but it’s also trending high with brides, with lace adorning cakes and satin used as a sash and floral wrap. We predict it will remain at the top through June, especially for 4th of July wreaths, floral arrangements and picnic decorations. Speaking of July 4th, keep an eye out for a post with all our new patriotic ribbons coming soon!
#5. Navy blue burlap twine
#4. Iced Plum Charisma
“Charisma” ribbons are gorgeous two tone taffetas that shimmer from one color to the other, creating tones which show on both sides of the ribbon. Iced Plum, 1 1/2″ wide, is a mid-range purple that flashes a soft mossy green – gold, depending on the angle of the light hitting it.
#3. White Jingle Bell
Also versatile, our super-large white jingle bell can fit into almost any color scheme. Pair it up with our red bell for July 4th — oh, you want to add a navy bell to that? Only takes a quick pass with navy spray paint over the white! Or a few brush strokes of navy craft paint for stripes!
#2. Navy Stretch Lace
#1. Navy Blue Burlap
Back on top! Wired navy blue burlap ribbon, 2 1/2″ wide, is available in a 3 yard length, a 10 yard roll and as a 50 yard lot. Don’t forget coordinating 5/8″ cut-edge navy burlap, navy burlap string and heavier weight navy burlap cord! Other excellent navy blue choices include double sided satin, faux dupioni silk Anisha and semi-sheer Kempton.

Eggplant is proving more popular than orchid for wedding ribbon from our vantage at Cottage Crafts. The dark purple may not be “color of the year” officially yet it is among our most requested satin ribbon colors. We’ve added extra widths from narrow to wide. Starting with the narrow 1/4″ width, slightly wider 3/8″, and 5/8″, to the versatile 1 1/2″ and sash wide 2 1/4″, we offer many ways to purchase the width and amount you need. Our signature line of satins is made by Offray Lion Ribbon here in the U.S. The exquisite smooth feel on both sides of the ribbon comes from the high thread count. If Eggplant isn’t your color, there are over 70 others to choose from. Many are kept in stock ready to ship and other sizes and colors can be ordered.
