    I’d go with white, maybe gold.  I think the white will look better on the red floor, and the gold will look better outside, but either of those will probably work in both locations.  I think red would be too much red.

    The satin sashes are probably polyester satin.  Silk satin would be very expensive just for tables.

    I’d go with white or gold, not red. I guess I’d lean towards gold so it doesn’t look red, white, and blue (4th of July). But really you can’t go wrong with either one. I don’t think the shininess is an issue, although you could also use ribbon instead of a sash, which would be a bit less shiny. (I used wide ribbon for mine).

     

    As PP said, those sashes are most likely polyester satin, but I am guessing you are referring to the weave rather than the material (so you re asking if the material should be more like polyester tablecloths that are matte).

    I love the white matte bows, like in the inspiration picture. It looks really elegant.

    I love the inspiration picture of the cocktail tables as well. I personally would nix the chair sashes.

    Sakari87:  Are the polyester and satin ones from different companies, or the same?  It’s confusing, because just knowing it’s polyester doesn’t say much about what kind of fabric it is.  Polyester can be shiny, matte etc., depending on the weave of the fabric.  Even polyester satin can be matte or shiny.  Just knowing it’s made of polyester doesn’t tell you enough.  They could be the exact same thing, just described differently if they’re from different companies.
