Here’s what you have to do. First, wrap earthy twine tightly around the mason jar’s neck. Then use a hanging loop to tie it. Next, fill the jar with water, and add white roses and caspia branches. Finally, hang several of the homemade vases over the wedding chairs’ backs along the aisle.

Even if you’re a city slicker, you may want to add some country charm to the seating at your wedding. To add a rustic look to your ceremony or reception, you can throw in some textured bows. This will help to add some elegance to the chair decor.

Follow these basic steps. Place a long/wide strip of burlap fabric, then put a wide lace ribbon strip on top of it. Next, create a big bow around the aisle chair’s backing. Then add the finishing touch by putting some dried baby’s breath flowers behind the knot.

Tulle is a soft nylon/silk cloth whose name originates from a city in southern-central France. This fabric is extremely elegant, so it’s a great option to create an eye-catching display that isn’t too flashy. It’s used for various wedding items, including gowns and veils.

In order to get the best results, use ivory tulle for the chairs. First, wrap the netlike material around the chair’s back. Then use a satin ribbon to tie it. Finally, you can add some texture by attaching a pink millinery flower.

You’ve seen chalkboards in schools and cafés, but how can you use them as chair decor? These message boards are a great way to add a unique look to the reception’s sweetheart table. Get a seamless look by writing with chalk markers.

You can add a special note to your new husband or wife on a hanging chalkboard. Then let them write their own loving note on another board. Another option is to write your favorite love song lyrics on the board. Then add the chalkboards over your dinner-table chairs at the reception with some eucalyptus branches for more texture.
