@bluebird615: I was also looking for an inexpensive and pretty way to decorate the chairs for my outdoor reception.  I found chair sashes on the Smarty Had a Party website that were very reasonably priced.  Satin sashes are 5 for $4.25, organza sashes are 5 for $2.95, and taffeta sashes are 5 for $5.95.  I think I’m going to order green sashes for my spring peony wedding.

Below are links to Satin, Organza, and Taffeta sashes.  They also have chair covers.




Hope this helps!

I think the ribbon flower idea could work. What about buying chair covers used on here?

Are they in bad shape or a terrible color? If they’re OK as they are, I wouldn’t do anything to them. If you do decide to dress them in some way, do you have people to do it for you? Our venue wanted to charge us $1. each to tie on the sashes, so we did it ourselves..but it still took a pretty long time.

I think the chairs look nice as is. However, if you wanna add a little something I would do a sash tied in a bow at the back of the chair. We also are using sashes from smarty had a party. We’re using the organza one which comes in a variety of color and is only 2.95 for a pack of 5!

They are much better than what we had. Ours were dirty blue and they even suggested we cover them….they knew they were bad.  Chivari chairs were $10. each plus the cushion rental, so we defintely weren’t getting them. Our venue provided no linens at all (or anything else) so it all had to be rented. I ended up buying most of the linens and chair covers, but it doesn’t look like an option for you.

What are the colors you’ll be using everywhere else? If they will go together, I honestly wouldn’t do anything to them since they look so nice. The sashes won’t look very nice unless they’re simple or maybe tied and knotted to the side, and the only other place to tie anything is the top (and another expense if the florist is suggesting ribbon and a flower). Remember many people will remove jackets or bring sweaters or hang purses, and all that work will be for nothing and covered up.
