Fun Ways To Decorate Standard Folding Chairs For An Event

Posted by on Aug 16, 2016 in Uncategorized

If you are hosting an outdoor event in the near future, and you have several guests attending, chances are you will need to rent several tables and chairs if you plan on serving food or if you wish for attendees to have a place to rest. Many people rent folding chairs from a rental service as they are easy to transport and are relatively inexpensive compared to other models. If you wish to add some spice to your party atmosphere, consider trying one of the following tips to incorporate color and texture to plain folding chairs. Add Some Festive Color With Ribbon One great way to add color to your chair is with the addition of ribbon strands. Measure the height of a chair from the top to bottom and double the number. Measure a strand of ribbon to this amount and subtract an inch or two from the total so the decoration will be an ample distance from the floor after it is attached. Fold the piece of ribbon in half and drape it over the back of the chair. Tie it into place underneath the back rest. The tails will hang down in the back of the chair. Do this with several ribbons for an easy bit of decor without spending a lot to obtain it. Bring Out The Smiles With Balloons If your event involves children, adding balloons to the chair backs is a great way to get attendees into the party spirit. Consider drawing faces or writing guests’ names upon the balloons with a black marker to give them a whimsical appearance. Helium-filled balloons can be tied directly to the chair back or if you would rather, air-filled balloons can be taped to this backs of the chairs instead. To avoid having excited children pop the balloons, inform them that there is a prize hidden inside of each one and everyone will be popping them together to reveal the secret. Wait until the end of the party to let the surprise loose! Give Chairs A Bit Of Beauty When someone hosts a wedding, they may want to stick with an elegant theme throughout their special day. Chairs can be dressed up with silk flowers to give them the aura of romance and togetherness. Purchase several artificial blooms from an area craft store. These can be attached to pieces of taffeta or lace and tied across the backs of the chairs horizontally. Make sure there are no flowers upon the portion facing the seated guest. Accomplish this by tying the material first. Afterward, hot glue the flowers to the knotted portion on the back. To rent the chairs, visit...

Tips For Planning A Memorable Christmas Party

Posted by on Aug 3, 2016 in Uncategorized

If you don’t typically entertain guests in your home, even the thought of planning a Christmas party for your loved ones can be overwhelming. However, you don’t need to plan an elaborate event to host a memorable Christmas party. It’s okay to keep things simple. In fact, because so many people spend the holidays rushing around, your loved ones might appreciate a relaxed, casual gathering. Check out these tips to learn how to plan a simple, yet memorable, Christmas party for your family and friends. Give Your Party a Theme Take your holiday celebration to the next level and make planning simple by having a themed Christmas party. You just need to put a holiday twist on a fun party theme. For example, if you live in an area with a warm climate, you could host a “Christmas at the Coast” backyard beach-themed barbecue by asking your guests to come in beachy attire and decorating your yard with a combination of Christmas and beach-themed decorations. You can also roast a pig instead of serving Christmas ham. Alternatively, you could host a holiday-themed pajama party. Simply ask your guests to come dressed in their best winter pajamas. Then, instead of mingling over glasses of wine and champagne, you and your guests can watch Christmas movies and play board games all evening. Hire a Santa Many people only consider hiring someone to play Santa at their Christmas party if they are planning a party for children. But, what’s a Christmas party without Santa? Your adult guests can have just as much fun posing for pictures with Santa Claus, especially if you have fun props for them to use in their photos. So, consider setting a box filled with reindeer antler headbands, elf hats, and funky scarves out for your guests to play with when Santa arrives. Remember, when you hire a Santa for your party, you should have gifts for him to distribute. If children will be attending your party, purchase and wrap a small gift for each of them. If your Christmas party is “adults only” consider having Santa pass out gift certificates to all of your guests. Entertainment Chances are, your house will already be decorated for the holidays. So, you don’t need to put much effort into party decorations — unless you’re hosting a theme party. Instead, focus your energy on your party entertainment. Christmas carol karaoke is a great way to entertain guests of all ages. Alternatively, having a marshmallow roast, a gingerbread decorating contest, or a white elephant gift exchange are all good ways to keep your guests entertained. Remember, holiday parties are about spending time with your loved ones. So, instead of focusing on minute details while you’re planning your party, focus on things that you can do together. Before you know it, you’ll have a fun, memorable holiday gathering...
