My son turned 14 last week.

And although obviously as a true 14 year old he would rather have a longer lie – family tradition dictates that we must have a special breakfast on morning of his birthday.

Unfortunately Mr PaintSewGlueChew was traveling with work that week, so more important than usual to make it a bit special.

Obviously in our house, that will mean bunting.   This year I also made some cake bunting to go on the breakfast waffles.

I’ve created two pages of bunting phrases in a variety of fonts.  There are 8 different phrases to choose from.

The printables are black, and looks great as a black and white on just standard printer paper.  Or coloured paper is a bit more festive, to brighten things up without using tonnes of printer ink.  You can download them Cake Bunting 1 &  Cake Bunting 2
