Chair covers for your dining room chairs are an excellent idea, especially if you have young children. With children, accidents do happen, and food can easily get spilled, especially if the food is relatively liquid or has a higher oil content. Some children may even be inclined to wipe their greasy fingers on the chairs after they have eaten, even if they are given a napkin to use! Spills, stains and oily marks can be quite difficult to remove from your chairs, unless you have chair covers. Removable covers will allow you to take off the cover if it gets messy, and then wash it properly, away from the chair. If you have young children, investing in inexpensive, machine washable covers could be a brilliant idea for you.
For simple modification look into pairing a narrow chair rail with two interesting moldings, one top and one at the bottom. By implementing three pieces of pre-shaped wood you can actually come up with complex chair rail without having to do your own routing.
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.
It is not always necessary to cover wedding chairs with slipcovers to make them prettier. If the chair itself is already attractive, you might just want to add a little decoration to it. For a formal evening wedding, gold tassels would be an elegant addition to the backs of the reception chairs. Make the bride's chair extra special by designing a custom tassel made entirely of crystals - all the better to complement her crystal wedding jewelry, of course. The tassel motif would be wonderful to use selectively in other parts of the wedding design, such as on the napkins or as a design motif printed on the place cards.
Looking for more cute ways to decorate your reception chairs? Use your wedding theme as inspiration. Tie sand dollars to the chair backs for a beach wedding or use jeweled snowflake ornaments for a winter wedding. Because there are so many chairs at a wedding reception, paying a little attention to decorating them will pay big dividends in the overall wedding design.
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.
