Chair sashes make ordinary chair look special and beautiful. Usually we see well-decorated and covered chairs on big and formal events; chair covers are used according to the theme of the functions.

When we arrange a small function at our home for close family members, we often ignore this type of decoration and leave the chairs naked. But really you can make your close friends feel more welcomed if you put a little effort in the dιcor. Nicely arranged chairs with a sash brighten the whole scenario. You can even hide the worn out areas of your chairs by tying chair sashes on them.

Tying a sash on chair is an art. For a big function you can ask your party rental to provide you with well decorated and set chairs but if you want to do it yourself for your small gathering then you must learn how to tie the sash nicely. If the strip of cloth is not tied up neatly it would make your chair look even more untidy.
