When people rent chairs from party chairs rentals, they are always complaining that the chairs look too basic and dry. This can be a problem if you are having an elegant event. Did you know you can uplift the look of the chairs? You only need to decorate them. Wondering how to do it? Here are ideas to put into practice:
Slip-on plain pillow covers
This is thrifty and clever idea and you can easily find pillow covers in your home. If you don’t have enough covers, borrow from a friend or neighbor. For you to transform your chairs all you need are plain pillow covers and satin ribbon.
Slip the cover over the backrest of your chair and tie in a bow with a satin ribbon. For a uniform look, go for pillow covers of the same color. When it comes to the ribbon, go for a brightly colored one that will draw attention to the chair. Do you want a classy finish? Pin in a lace ribbon.
Wire a spray of flowers
Whether having a chic city event or country garden wedding, flower corsages will look in place. To create a midsummer night’s dream effect, ask your florist to wire a spray of flowers along the sides of the chairs.
The color you choose should match the venue and theme. If having a city event, go with deep red or white roses. For a rural look, mix up the available wildflowers. To maintain a fresh look, ensure that the flowers are well-misted with water.
Tie satin ribbons
If you don’t have pillow covers you should go ahead and use the satin ribbons on their own. Trim the ribbons and tie one end up to the back of the chairs. The wind will blow them giving the chairs a unique look.
If you have the skills, tie the ribbons in different patterns. You can even hire an expert to help you out. Just like with the flowers, ensure that the color you choose matches the party theme. You also should ensure that the ribbon material is tough so that it doesn’t tear when blown by the wind or pulled by children.
Sign the chairs
This works well when you are having a small party with people that are intimate to you and know them well. If you know popular sayings or verses used by the people attending the event, ask your stationer to create signs bearing the sayings or verses then place them on the chairs.
For a great look, ensure that the signs you choose fit your chair and they are easy to read. If the sign is too hard and official-looking, soften it by placing some greenery on the side of the party chair.
Blow and pin balloons
In addition to being easily available and cheap, balloons also come in a wide range of colors for you to choose from. All you need to do is to blow the balloons and pin them to the chairs. Add a few flowers to the balloons and you will have great looking chairs at a small cost.
If you are creative and have the time, create a balloon arch with small and large balloons. For a great look, ensure that the balloons are all of the same colors.
The main challenge of using balloons is that they blow out. Always have extra balloons for replacement. To minimize those that blow out, fill them at only half their air capacity.
Go wild with pipe cleaners
On first look, pipe cleaners look useless but there is so much you can do to improve not only the look of the chairs, but of the entire event. Pipe cleaners are highly flexible and at the same time retain their shape.
These features make it possible to create any shape you want. From Mickey Mouse ears to magic wands, animals, and flowers, you can create it all with the cleaners.
Make use of wreaths
Wreaths not only fit a wide range of themes, they are also easy to hang behind the chairs. You have many options to choose from. Choose from leaves, tulle, paper flowers, pool noodles, and even ribbons.
