Adorn the Reserved Seating with a simple bow and greenery!
When there are special seating for family members in an outdoor Wedding, simplicity is the key. White bows with greenery marks the chairs as reserved.
You Will Need:
#22 Florist Wire
Floral Wrap Tape
For this event, I choose #40 white FloraSatin ribbon. FloraSatin ribbon contains plastic. This allows the ribbon to look great in all weather conditions. I used #40 because it is 2” wide which makes a larger bow.
Make the bow. (Refer to post of February 1, 2018.) Secure with a 18” #22 florist wire wrapped with florist wrap tape. Set aside.
I use Jade and Leatherleaf greenery (available from local florists). Jade leaves are flat. I place one piece of Jade taller than the top of the chair. I turn the next piece of Jade upside down and below the first piece of Jade. Repeat the same pattern using the Leatherleaf greenery. I then take a 18” floral wrapped wire and secure the center of the greenery. Leave the ends of the wire long. Place the greenery against the side of the chair and wrap the wire ends around the chair side. Place the ends of the wire to the bow over the wire of the greenery. Tighten the wire so the bow stands firmly against the side of the chair. Hide all the ends of the wire in the greenery.
