We are having chiavari chairs at our reception (or Tiffany, as we call them on México). At the beginning I was leaning towards the gold ones, but neither my FI or my mom liked them.
Oh well. So instead, I think we are having the brown ones:
I think the chairs are beautiful, even tough I suspect they are plastic instead of wood… Anyway, I was looking at some inspiration photos on how to beautify them a bit more.
For our chairs, we’ve all seen all this gorgeous pictures:

I had to have something like that!! For this super easy project I used:
- Thick cardboard letters
- Electric drill
- Washi tape (mt brand)
- Thin ribbon
First, using the drill, I punched two holes on top of each letter. (Keep in mind we will not be a Mr. and Mrs., we will be a Sr. Y Sra., as in señor y señora)
I started covering the letters, stripe by stripe with the tape.
I folded the corners and covered the back of the letters. Then the sides.
Of course after I was finished I realized the color was all wrong!! It was orange, not coral, so, I peel them of and started all over again.
There, this is more like it.
After that, I simply tied the ribbon on each hole.
And voilà, my chair decors are done! (Ohhh, I’m so embarrassed, my bright pink Croc is showing! I swear I only wear them when I’m home alone!)
Then I started to think about the guest chairs. I found some lovely inspiration pics:
But I wonder…. isn’t doing sashes for 250+ chairs a lot? Would it look saturated? Maybe I could do it alternating, one chair with, one without.
What do you think? Are you doing something with your chairs?
