My mom really feels the first few pews at the church need some kind of decoration to designate them for family. I’m trying to keep church decor simple and don’t want to spend a lot of money.
Anyone have any cheap/simple ideas for something to go at the end of the pew? I’m not a HUGE fan of bows, but if they are the cheapest/easiest, I would do it.
Does anyone have any photos they could share of their pew decor?
Any and all ideas appreciated!

Hm…what about a ribbon across with a nice printed Reserved sign on it? I am having trouble thinking of much…sorry!

Maybe you can make DIY pomanders? Then you can hang them from each of the pews. Several bees have posted tutorials – here is one from Mrs. Peep Toe. (If you put “DIY pomander” into the search field, a whole bunch of other posts come up as well, if you’re interested.)

We’re doing pew bows for the family. Simple and easy. My Mom is making them.

Thanks! I am pretty much decorating my entire reception with the tissue poms – so cheap, so easy! Maybe I will just make a few extra for the church. Thanks for the input!

I used great big black tassels with a clear bead…at least I think they got put up! lol…by the time I was close enough to see I only had eyes for Mr. CurlyQ. (my colors were black, white and pale pink)
They were for curtain tie backs but fit in perfectly. Got them at Hobby Lobby 1/2 off. I’m not much for bows either. 😉

We had bows on all the rows but had the groomsmen escort people down and keep the front for family.

The florist is decorating my pews, but I’m still making a little hanging sign that says “reserved” since most of the aisles will have flowers. I’m attaching it with some left over baker’s twine.

My pews are curved and have some scroll work, so its almost impossible to hang things from them. I’ll just make little signs out of cardstock, fold them, and sit them on the seats of the reserved pews.
