@lovelyduckie:  Those look great! Do you know how much ribbon you ended up using for the arbor garland? I’m planning on doing something similar but I wasn’t sure how much ribbon to buy.

These look awesome! We’re looking at doing something similar with our chairs – just the back row, though!

OMG – I’m sooooooooooooooooooo happy you posted this. 

I’ve got those same ugly fanback chairs for my ceremony, and have been trying really hard how to figure out what to do to make those chairs look decent. I’m not willing to pay so much extra for those nice garden chairs. I’d rather spend it on food, music and drinks. 


Maybe I could make a few just for the back row of my ceremony. I would be a cute way to incorporate the Renfaire ribbon feel.

@lovelyduckie:  Hopefully you’re still around! If I’m doing 50 chairs, how many total yards of ribbon/lace should I buy? I’m thinking of doing 4 different colours, with different widths and mixing double sided satin ribbon with lace.
