I finally started to make tulle pew bows tonight. Here are some pics of the six I have done so far (one is larger than the others, so might get scrapped…it was the first one I did). I plan to attach a length of ivory ribbon to the back to hang over the pew. (Forgive the cell phone pics, and focus on these)
Here is a picture of the interior of the church. It is a small country church with 14 pews (7 each side). Should I do a bow on each pew? I am lining the aisle with silk petals, and tha altar will just have a single floral arrangement with a candle on each side (the altar cloth and white riser will be removed, so the flowers and candle will be direclty on the wooden altar). Flags will be removed. There will be a small candle in each window also (votive).

What a lovely little church!
I would do every other row.
Had you thought of inserting a sprig of silk flowers in your colors into the center of the bow?

@julies1949: Thank you. My colors are black and ivory. I don’t want any black in the bows, so decided on just the bow alone since I don’t want to bring in any accent color in the flowers (all other flowers are white/ivory in bouquets and arrangements).

Anymore opinions Bees. Be honest, are they looking okay… Need to do over… How many should I use?

I think the bows look good. If I were to do it, I think since there are not many pews I would put one on each. In our church there is about 24 pews on each side so we are only doing every other.

Good morning ladies. So as I was finishing up the bows, I added a thin black ribbon (since that is what I had) that I imagined I would use to hang the pew bows over the pews; but now I am thinking that I like the very small black accent. Thoughts, better with or without the black ribbon?
Also, if I leave the black ribbon as an accent, has anyone just sewn in fishing line to the knot in the back and used that to hang their bows?
