A Dramatic Chair Garland
Garlands are lovely on the bride and groom chairs, or made longer for a centerpiece or hanging garland. You won’t believe how easy they are to make!
You will need: About 10 -15 stems of fully opened flower blossoms (for a standard Chivari chair), Fishline, A Needle, Scissors, A spray bottle with water, Ziplock bag, Ribbon (around 2 yards)
Clip the stems off all the flowers so they can sit flat. Measure the width of your chair and times it by 2. For the standard Chivari chair that we used, we made about a 12″ garland.
Cut a length of fishline to match your measurement. Thread a needle through the fishline and tie a knot at the end of it. Push the needle through the bottom of the flower and repeat. String together all the flowers until the garland is full.
Tip: Mist the garland with water and keep in the fridge overnight in a ziplock bag.
Your pretty chair garland is complete. This is best made the night before or the morning of your event.
Assign your caterer, wedding planner, or friend to tie the garlands on the chairs before your reception.
Tie each end to the top of the chair and then add ribbon!
Total cost of this garland was $8, including the ribbon! Photographed at The Cleaners at Ace Hotel Portland (www.acehotel.com). Chair and linen rentals courtesy of Party Place PDX(www.thepartyplacepdx.com).
