Remember a few weeks ago whenÂ Brooke KeeganÂ pulled out her magic wand and put together a glamorous surprise backyard bridal shower for her friend Megan? A dreamy event that was filled with fabulous decor, including the prettiestÂ ribbon chair we have ever seen. If you did not see the event, you must have a look.
Lucky for us,Â BrookeÂ shares exactly how sheÂ reinvented the chair into a completely glamorous accessory for the shower.Â A doable project that takes a little time, a whole lot of ribbon and of course a chair. We can already see the photo of the two of you in your fancy chairs.Â Read on for complete instructions fromÂ Brooke. The lovely chairs were provided byÂ Chiavari Chair RentalsÂ and all of the ribbon was purchased from BB Crafts.
We are sure the woven purple, plum, lavender, lilac and silver ribbon on a Clear Chiavari chairÂ will be a total hit! Purple is the most searched color on our Style Search.Â Ten different ribbon types were used in shades of purple and silver ranging in size fromÂ 1/4 in. to 3/8 in.
*Note: You can stop after tying the ribbons horizontally for a super cute simple look, or continue on with the verticals for the woven look.
If you would like to continue to weave your fancy purple chair you can start with your vertical pieces and weave through the horizontal ribbons. Â After you tie the ribbons vertically, tuck in the excess ribbon between the two woven sections from the bottom.
Trailing Mint, White, Ivory, Gold Ribbon tied on a White Chiavari chairÂ is definitely add a sophisticated touchÂ for your wedding. We used 9 different ribbon colors and widths ranging from 1/8 in. to 5/8 in.
How much do you love ribbon? Ribbon just makes everything prettier.Â BB CraftsÂ has pretty much every style and color of ribbon you can imagine and they ship super fast. Don’t you think a decorated chair or chairs would spruce up any event? We sure do and can’t wait to see them at your wedding.
