Every now and then we like a little party at Saffron Souk. It’s our favourite time to whip out the old bunting, banners and garland! So we were rather excited to hear whispers of Saffron Souk boutique the ‘Wishing Tree‘, branching out into offering gorgeous custom made bunting for Saffron Souk members.

As soon as we got wind of this delightful snippet of information, we got in touch with Dubai based Wishing Tree’s founder Sarah, for a sneak peek and my goodness did we like what we saw…

2. Wishing Tree – your one stop shop for handmade, personalised bunting in the Gulf.

Sarah was amazing. For a flat rate of AED 140, she will provide you with a 5m length of bunting flags (approximately 23 flags in total), with a generous 40cm of tape for tying at either end. If you have something specific in mind, you can tell Wishing Tree what type of colour scheme you are looking for and Sarah will provide you (via the Saffron Souk message system) with a variety of playful fabrics, and header tape colours to select your final bunting prior to production. And the bonus is, there are lovely felt letters stitched spelling out Happy Birthday! If you wish to customise your bunting further for a special occasion such as a birthday, wedding, baby shower, Eid, Christmas, or perhaps even National Day celebrations – you name it and we are almost certain Wishing Tree will give it their best shot to make you the perfect cotton bunting to fit your specific requirements – so don’t hesitate to contact them. 

A string of playful personalised bunting is also a rather impressive addition to any childs room or nursery, especially when it can be matched to your existing colour scheme and felt names incorporated. 

And if you are stuck for ideas, we understand Wishing Tree might even have some standard fabric combinations available, to help the design challenged amongst us or those pushed for time.

6. The quality is amazing…


7. & 8. We quite liked the idea of layering the bunting in different strands to jazz up a bedroom – looks like we need to get shopping for more bunting…

Remember the Wishing Tree was started because it the brands owner, Sarah, wished to produce quality products. Each item is made in Dubai, UAE by Sarah with not only a little love in every stitch but a desire to experiment, so if you have any bunting suggestions please contact her via the Saffron Souk message system on her shopfront.

We know she will be more than happy to help!
