I would leave off the burlap chair bows, especially if you mean to tie it around the back of the chair. It’s very itchy and sheds like crazy.

I would just do a burlap flower on the back of the chair.

Can you really have too much burlap? I think not. lol

I don’t personally think what you’ve described sounds like too much since its balanced with the white. But, it might be scratchy so try it out first.

Just an FYI new burlap stinks something awful so be sure to give yourself enough time to air it out first.

As long as you incorperate them right, it should look great! I would add a little more pink but that’s just me 🙂 I know how you feel about burlap though, when I first started planning I HATED the though of using the stuff! But now, I’m using it as much as I can LOL

My tables will have white linines, and the centerpieces are a round of wood, a little burlap laid ontop with three mason jars w/ candles inside. around the jars I’ll have burlap flowers…here’s how to make them http://mayamade.blogspot.com/2009/11/simple-gifts-monogrammed-napkin-ring-in.html  …too cute!! Oh and my colours are Chocolate Brown with a little Blue and Fuschia

We did burlap table runners on white table cloths and I think they looked great!  It’s such an easy, inexepensive fabric to work with – and totally re-purposable!

Our table runners being made:


At the wedding:


Re-purposed after the wedding:



We also made some burlap flags to hang behind our cake table and pillow cases for the ceremony’s quilts/blankets on the green seating.
