I owned a bar once upon a time and we really bootstrapped it. We were short on start up money and needed a bunch of tables. These tables also had to be quite durable as our clientele tended to drink and carry on quite a bit. I'll admit that it wasn't me but my partner Scott that came up with the idea. Industrial spools. We found a place in Montreal that sold and re-sold huge industrial spools, the kind that can carry a few miles of telephone wire, anywhere from two to ten feet in diameter. We rented a van and went down there. The place was totally fine with us helping ourselves to six spools, each about four feet high and four feet in diameter. We simply sanded them down and applied generous amounts of shellac. They turned out beautifully.
When you think about how many chairs are used in the average wedding reception, it becomes clear that this is key area of the overall wedding decor. So many brides make the mistake of overlooking the chairs at their reception, instead of finding ways to make the seating a beautiful addition to the wedding. Take advantage of the design opportunity presented by the seating at your wedding with one of these cute ideas for reception chair decorations.
A typical quality beanbag chair will have a durable muslin inner bag that holds the beans, or filling. Then it has an outer cover that can later be taken off and laundered as needed, this cover has a zipper on it (or Velcro closures). It takes 3-5 yards of fabric each for the inner case and the outer cover of an adult size chair, the outer cover will need a long zipper (or Velcro). Each adult chair requires about 6 cu. feet of filling.
But more importantly, the type of chairs you should use especially if you would sit for prolonged hours in front of a computer are those that can keep your legs and muscles healthy such as an office recliner chair. However, in choosing there types of chair, consider the allowed budget to avoid over expensive stuff.
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.
Chair covers can also be used to help you to upgrade the appearance of your chairs if you are planning a more formal occasion than those which you usually host in your dining room. A high-quality chair cover can allow your chair to look much nicer for your event, and not look out of place in a more formal setting. If you are just planning on getting these covers for a one off event, it may be possible for you to rent the covers for a few days, rather than having to buy them.
