There are many exquisite ways to decorate the rest of the chairs for a wedding reception. Slipcovers are one popular idea. Full slipcovers are ideal for dressing up less-than-attractive rental chairs. They add a feminine look to the reception, and are a great place to bring more color into the room. The entire slipcover can be in your signature wedding color, or you can opt for white slipcovers with colored sashes. If your venue has pretty seating, such as chiavari chairs, consider a sheer tailored organza slipcover which will allow the chair underneath to show through a bit.
The first thing that you will notice when you own one of these chairs is that they tend to collect dust and dirt. The wicker just being the nature of the material has a lot of little cracks and surface areas that dirt and dust can collect. This can become a large problem because even inside these chairs can start to look dirty and grimy really quickly with normal usage. Especially on everyone's country style favorite color that has been a number one seller; white. It is just not a good idea to have wicker dining room chairs. Along with this fact, leads directly into another problem with maintenance of these chairs. If they are close or in the kitchen or nook off of the kitchen they tend to collect any grease that may splatter up in the air from cooking. This mixed with dust and grime really can cause this kind of furniture to be hard to clean.
These fun-loving chairs are quite popular and easy to make. If you enjoy sewing, this is a 'business idea' that might appeal to you. The profits are quite good too; these chairs are just a big bag full of stuffing or beans. The popular filling these days is polystyrene pellets because they are lightweight. So there isn't a lot of sewing required, you don't even need to put a zipper on it, unless you want to.
I wrote a piece recently on cool chairs. It got me to thinking how easy it would be to set up a little business creating really funky chairs out of materials found for free or nearly free just about anywhere. It is a lot easier to find used industrial parts than people realize. Often these parts can be cleaned up, polished, stained or painted and with a little creativity, turned into beautiful pieces of furniture that double as terrific conversation items.
For a garden wedding, it would be fantastic to decorate the reception chairs with fresh flowers. Swags of greens and flowers are a beautiful way to dress up the backs of white chairs. If it is too costly to do for the entire wedding, at least think about draping swags on the chairs at the head table. Floral pomanders are another cute decoration to hang on the backs of the wedding chairs. Create the pomanders in a cheerful color like bright pink or yellow so they really stand out against the white chairs. Add a colorful ribbon in a polka dot or gingham pattern for a whimsical touch.
If you are preparing a baby's room or play room, think about devoting one wall or part of a wall to pegged molding. In a child's room such pegs could substitute closets, or allow a wide range of packs, bags, and looped toys to be hung up out of the way. Keep in mind that chair molding could include practical attributes such as this.
