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.
Spring brings thoughts of warm weather, being outside and hearing birds sing again. Maybe that’s why two of top weekly ribbons, “Bug’s Life” and “Peacock Feather” caught our visitors’ eyes. Let’s see what other items made up the rest of this week’s most viewed and liked!
#5. Pigskin Football Ribbon
It may have been March Madness for basketball, but our football lace ribbon print was a favorite. The 2 1/2″ width in a three yard length won the race this week, but also playing hard were the ten yard roll and the 1 1/2″ width in 3 yards and a ten yard roll.
#4. “Bug’s Day”
Yes, it’s spring and all those critters are coming out of their winter hiding places. Dragonflies are joined by their friends, lady bugs, bees and beetles.
#3. Teal Ombre
Ombre ribbons transition between colors, making them the go-to choice of ribbon flower crafters. The soft blending of colors in “Teal” evoke the ocean and coordinate nicely with “Peacock Feather”, Dark Teal “Anisha” and “Gelato” in Celadon. Teal ombre comes on 3 yard roll as well a cost effective 25 yard roll.
#2. Navy Burlap
#1. Peacock Feather
At the top of the weekly top five ribbons, this week: Gorgeous satin peacock feather print, 1 1/2″ wide, made in the US by Offray Lion Ribbon.

Once again, Navy Burlap heads the pack of the weekly top five ribbons! Will this dominance last through the 4th of July, as a favorite for patriotic USA wreaths and decor? Or is it even longer lasting, popular for weddings and events? When will Halloween and fall ribbons begin to make a regular appearance? Let’s see what other items made up the rest of this week’s most viewed!
#5. Faux Birch Paper Garland
One of our all time best sellers, this paper garland makes a nice wrap for vases and candle jars.
#4. Yellow Measuring Twill Tape
A newcomer to the list, d. stevens yellow twill tape with a measuring tape pattern. The decorative tape is not intended for use as a measuring tape.
#3. Purple Wired Tinsel
Thick, springy wired tinsel makes a great embellishment in florals and decor. Sold in three yard lengths, the versatile color can be used for Halloween, Christmas, Mardi Gras and Easter projects, so it’s worth picking up a cost saving twenty four yard roll.
#2. Bright Navy Blue Mini Stars
The 1 1/2″ width came in at #2, but, in addition, we carry a 1″ width. There’s also red and burgundy, plus two new colors will be listed soon, Silver and Purple. To see the complete mini star collection, click here.

The first group of new fall ribbons gathered for a portrait recently before taking their places on the shelves. It’s a patient group. They’ll wait for you to choose them, but their time is limited. Which will you choose from the shop to create your fall crafts and decor? From the top left, in the first column, meet Monroe a cleanly designed check highlighted in gold metallic, Black Sheer Halloween Check, McKean 2 1/2″, a warm caramel brown and gold metallic plaid, Orange Leaf, featuring delicate brown flocked leaves on orange sheer , and Arietta Purple, with a velvet or suede texture. Second row, Copper Glo, sheer and luminous, McKean Plaid, here in a 1 1/2″ width, Jolene, a no-holds-barred glitter stripe, Jack, wild pumpkins strewn across 4″ black ribbon and Chazy Purple, super-fun metallic wired tinsel. Third row, Fortress Dark Lavender, a gorgeous sheer with elegant sliver highlights, Court Jester Eggplant, elegant and rich beyond belief, Verona Copper, glitter stripes on sheer copper, Calabash, gold, orange and brown glitter stripes on brown sheer and Scarecrow, with friendly scarecrows and pumpkins. Last row, Court Jester Burgundy, deep burgundy criss-crossed with olive green ribbon, Copper Scroll, Forest Plaid, a graphic cranberry, orange and dark moss green checked plaid and Fall Stitch, with yellow “stitches” outlining the cranberry and green stripes as they cross on orange. In the background, Court Jester Gold. Need even more choices? See the entire fall collection in our Etsy shop.
New purple ribbons add glitz and glamour to your fall projects. Purple, the color of grapes and wine, of royalty, of muted colored leaves, of wildly growing loosestrife, sets off other fall colors. It brings life to the oranges, russets and olive greens of nature and punch to Halloween black and orange. Now our just added purple ribbon pair gives you two different textures to create with.
Chazy, a soft, wired fringed tinsel trim brings the glitz and sparkle. Arietta, a velvet-like texture in a wired, weather resistant ribbon, adds the glamour. Wind Chazy around an arrangement, garland or wreath adding fun and catching the light to make them shine. Cut pieces and create spirals and loops that embellish your project. Add texture to your scrapbook pages. Chazy is similar to pipe cleaners but softer, more flexible and classier. Arietta with its’ velvet, suede type finish brings an elegant look to a Halloween wreath or purple themed Christmas decor. Create anything from a simple tie bow to a multi-looped poufy extravaganza. Combine it with a sheer for more dimension. Then add in spirals of Chazy for added punch! Check the shop for other purple ribbon, such as the newly listed Fortress, economically priced sheer Encore, extra wide Rick Rack, luxurious Court Jester, perennial favorites Wired Burlap and Burlap String.

Coming Soon! Chazy in several more colors and Arietta in Cobalt Blue.
I’m excited about our new, limited quantity addition to the Cottage Ribbon Shop. Biarritz is a lighter weight yet full-bodied taffeta ribbon. A lightly wired edge will keep bows, bouquets and ribbon flourishes in place and looking fresh and crisp. Brides and wreath makers won’t have to worry about their carefully arranged bows drooping or losing shape. The texture features a horizontal weave (think grosgrain without the rigidity). The sheen creates highlights and shadows as the ribbon is shaped. The five colors offered – Eggplant Purple, Citrus Green, Dark Pewter Grey, Ruby Red and Black are perfect for fall holidays, events and Christmas.
Biarritz – A Perfect Companion!
A number of other ribbons we carry coordinate and complement Biarritz. For shine, try Contessa (wired) or Double Faced Satin. Options is an unwired sheer and Prelude, a wired semi-sheer. For a more rustic touch, try a narrow Burlap. Use with a Plaid for a sporty or traditional look. Floral prints added to a solid help to unify colors in a wreath or floral arrangement.
Biarritz – A Perfect Price!
At $6.95 for a ten yard roll, it’s affordable even when you need larger quantities. It’s a perfect price when you add a note to your Etsy order requesting the “Biarritz10” discount. You’ll receive an automatic refund of $1.00 off each roll of Biarritz ordered from now until July 31!
