We are having Chiavari chairs at our reception (or Tiffany, as we call them in México). At the beginning I was leaning toward the gold ones, but neither my FI nor my mom liked them.

Oh well. So instead, I think we are having the brown ones:

I think the chairs are beautiful, even though 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 the couple, we’ve all seen all these 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 at the top of each letter. (Keep in mind we will not be a Mr. and Mrs.—we will be a “Sr. Y Sra.” as in seÃ±or y seÃ±ora.)
I started covering the letters, strip by strip, with the tape.
I folded the corners and covered the backs 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 peeled the tape off and started all over again.
There, this is more like it.
After that, I simply strung the ribbon through each hole and tied it.
And voilÃ , my chair decor is 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-plus 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?
