Reception venues typically only offer unsightly plastic stacking chairs to their clients. They are ideal because they save space, are cheap, and easy to setup into an arrangement of your liking. Unfortunately, their main drawback is that they are less than attractive and more than likely will clash with your decor. Luckily there are ways to remedy these eyesores and even creatively incorporate them into your reception theme.
Make your Wedding Reception a Win
For wedding receptions, you are going to want to conceal these chairs as much as possible, so they fit into what most people often describe as “the best day of their lives”, because when it comes to weddings, every detail matters. One option is to build a cover with fabric or lace, but truthfully those aren’t ideal materials to use.
Using clothe will only prove to be more work than it’s worth as well as time consuming and expensive. Tulle, on the other hand, is a perfect option for decor. It’s easily available, comes in every color, requires no sewing or hemming, and best of all is dirt cheap. Tulle is also highly forgiving when it comes to how it molds around a shape. Clothe is almost always considered ugly and tacky if it has wrinkles but with tulle the more wrinkles and imperfections the better.
Tulle Chair Covers
To assemble a tulle chair cover, you will need to have a few materials on hand. First is, of course, the tulle itself. One thing to keep in mind is that tulle is transparent and will need multiple layers to conceal the chair underneath thoroughly. It takes roughly 32 inches of tulle to wrap around a standard metal chair once, and you need to plan on having enough to cover each chair 3 to 4 times. Then you need to decide on how you want to attach the tulle. You may wish to have an extra tulle or ribbon to fashion a bow and make sure you get the perfect stackable furniture display. A bow will be decorative and will keep the chair from looking plain while tying the tulle down at the same time. There is the option of sewing the tulle, but you should probably avoid that since tulle is a delicate material that tears easily. Sewing will also take twice as much time to finish, and time is typically limited to rented venues and usually only give you a day to setup. Hot glue will also work, but that too is time-consuming.
The first step for a tulle cover is to drape the layers over the chair. No matter what way you decide on employing to secure the tulle, your primary essential connection point will always be at the back of the chair. To tie it on simply wrap the material around the front part of the backrest and tie the bow in the back. If you want additional decor as well as reinforced attachments, you can also tie bows at the feet of the chair. If your reception is outside, it’s recommended if it’s windy.
The moral of the story is that it’s possible and quite easy to camouflage the cheapest of stackable chairs and transform them into elegant additions to your décor. Find out about this incredible range of tiffany chairs wholesale.
