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.
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.
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.
However, the reason's you can't think of is why you should just opt to get office chair casters. You'll never know when they are going to come in handy. Whether holidays, or office gatherings the need to remain mobile is a good interest for anything these days.
Here are a couple chair ideas. Go exploring your own town and see where you can find discarded wooden window blinds. Cut them to about three feet wide stain and generously clear-coat them. You'll need to cut out a support form which you should find easily enough on the web by searching for 'window blind chair'. Cheap plywood will do the job. Cut the two support forms and glue/nail it all in place. After a few cracks at it you'll end up being able to build wonderfully cool chairs that cost next to nothing and can easily be sold for $100.00. The second is simply an old steel drum. These can be found anywhere for free and only need a good cleaning and some clear coat finish. Take a look at the photo. You only need to make a good cut, cover the edge with rubber edging and add a cheap cushion and some $10.00 legs. Again - this should sell for $100.00 easy.
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.
