While providing chairs for guests at an event may seem like a mundane task, there are plenty of opportunities to have fun with it! Decorating chairs is a great, cost-effective way to add to your event décor. Depending on what your event décor style is, there are several ways you can decorate your chairs!
One of the most popular ways to decorate chairs is by using fabric. There is a wide variety of fabrics that you can use including satin, lace, chiffon, or burlap. Chiavari chairs are the best option if you plan on using fabric to decorate. The fabric can be draped over the top of the chair and collected behind it using a decorative tie. It could also be interlaced through the back of the chair in an intricate pattern. Another idea is to wrap the fabric around the back of the chair and tie it in a big bow.
Ribbons are a highly underrated décor piece. They can be used for any number of things, including decorations for your chairs! Ribbons come in a myriad of colors and textures to match whatever the aesthetic of the event is. Try tying several ribbons to the top bar of the chair and allowing them to hang down the back, creating a sort of curtain. Or tie a single ribbon into a bow on one of the top corners of the chair for a simple yet elegant look.
As always, florals are a great way to decorate any event. They are highly versatile and allow you to incorporate natural elements into your décor. When it comes to decorating chairs, one idea is to hang small bouquets or floral wreaths off the back of the chairs. For chairs that won’t be moving during the event, try hanging small vases filled with flowers from one of the top corners of our white padded chairs. For example, if you have rustic event décor, hang a mason jar using twine and fill it with wildflowers.
One of the big trends for events in 2021 is personalized elements. The more personal an event is made to be, the more likely your guests are to remember it! Consider having personalized signs made to hang on the back of the chairs. At the end of the event, let your guests take them home as a party favor!
