BOUNCY BALL BIRTHDAY: I created these high chair banners for twin boys recently. The mother was so sweet and had this idea to use the color they associated each boy with, to tell them apart from birth. What a cute idea!

About

Sisters Become "Banana Lala"

Meet Anna. Some call her "Banana" or "Anna Banana."
Meet Mikaelah. Some call her "Lala."

We are sisters from Southern Indiana and the owners of Banana Lala. We create custom party and wedding banners, along with other decorations. We are passionate about what we do!

Q. What got you started in this business?
A. It all kind of goes back to our love of parties! Mikaelah is very talented at party styling, the first of which she ever styled was her niece Avery’s first birthday party in March of 2010. (Avery is Anna’s daughter). For that birthday party, Mikaelah created her very first birthday banner. She remembers someone at the party telling her, “You should really do this as a business.”

Q. Do you do any custom orders?
A. We love working on custom orders! That’s actually a very large portion of our business. We have a variety of celebration banners on our Etsy shop, but a lot of what we sell is based on a bride or a couple’s request for a banner to coordinate with their wedding colors. Or a mother working on putting together a party theme for her child’s birthday party. That’s the kind of thing we love doing, is working with someone to create exactly what they are looking for regarding colors, theme and style.

Q. Where do you get your inspiration?
A. Inspiration from our creations really comes from within, mostly. For as long as we both can remember, Mikaelah and I have been doing all things creative. We love doing anything that really allows us to “make” something. We used to both be heavily into scrapbooking and creative things like that. Anna enjoys photography, and Mikaelah is very creative by nature with her profession as a hairstylist.
As far as outside inspiration, a lot of that comes with each order we receive. We love hearing about party themes and colors from a customer and then be able to brainstorm and come up with a really great styles for a custom banner, or a really great combination of ribbons for a topiary centerpiece.

Q. What is your favorite item ever made?
A. I’m not sure if either of us really has a favorite item, but we each have items that we specialize in. For example, Mikaelah is the one who usually handles creation of ribbon topiaries and wreaths, whereas Anna creates the banners. But it’s really a neat thing to be able to see one of our creations come together from start to finish. Each item we make is so different from everything else, so each custom item is special to us.

** We love giving back and doing what we can to help out charitable organizations. One of our biggest passions is the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life. Mikaelah has been active with the American Cancer Society for many years and is very passionate about the cause.
