Banana leaves add that element of simplicity and homeliness to the function. To top this, they are super duper reasonable and are sure to not burn a hole in your pocket. Whether used in ceiling decor, backdrop, as food menus or for packing favours, these lush green leaves are taking over the decor scene rapidly.

 

While you must already be aware of the fact that banana leaves are used to serve food, owing to the fact that they are thick and waterproof, there is lots more to it.
