Hello there, lovely readers! How can you get a pulled-together elegant look for only a few pounds if you’re planning a summer party but want to stay on a budget?
Adopting a shabby chic’ style will do the trick if you’re up for a little DIY. Your party decor can be as outrageous as you want it to be, and because you’ll be producing the majority of the decorations yourself, it’ll be surprisingly inexpensive.
Adopting a shabby chic theme makes it easy to create a unique event with few resources, whether you’re organizing a wedding, a vintage hen party, a charming birthday party, or simply a summer gathering with friends. Continue reading to learn how.
Because a shabby chic scheme necessitates a lot of mixing and matching, it’s preferable to borrow tables and chairs from friends. Even if you don’t have any shabby chic furniture, you can integrate the chairs you’ve rented to create a unified aesthetic for the party.
If your pals don’t like the thought of spray painting all of their chairs white, simply adorn the backs of the chairs. Use the same color fabric on each chair and hang the linens to cover at least two-thirds of the legs to bring the diverse shapes together. It’s easy to keep the palette neutral by layering several tones of white.
Packets of fabric with complementing colors and designs are commonly found wherever quilting supplies are sold. If these are too costly, gain inspiration from the pre-mixed bundles and purchase patterned fabrics separately.
Mix cottons, linens, and ribbon for a more serious look. Cut them into 2 inch broad strips and tie them to chair backs. It’s all about quantity here: if the backs aren’t completely filled, they’ll appear as an afterthought.
To make a long ruffle, tie the strips horizontally with the ends coming out the centre, or knot them vertically with a bow or flower in the middle.
You’ll want a little less color in the centerpiece if you’ve picked bright materials, so basic foliage is a good option. White chairs, on the other hand, demand to be matched with bright flowers.
Birdcages, lanterns, and white pottery pitchers are all traditional shabby chic centerpiece staples. Cover aluminum cans with patterned paper, wrap ribbon around them, and fill with peonies if you’re feeling crafty (and have the time).
Supermarket flowers are less expensive, and you can choose the most ‘blossomy’ stems to fill vases with less flowers.
Carnations (which are in again these days! ), Sweet Williams, and fragrant stocks are all inexpensive and occupy a lot of space.
Pick your own flowers from the garden; daffodils in the spring, foxgloves in June, and hydrangea in August-September are all good choices. Mix different types of flowers but use the same holders on each table if you want variation but don’t want it to look too ‘over the top.’
Mismatched flatware is shabby chic all over, but keeps it clean by wrapping individual settings in ribbon or storing it in matching receptacles, such as simple ceramic or glass jars. This appealing presentation is much more critical if you’re using throwaway things.
Tea can be served on vintage crockery with attractive flower patterns that can be combined and matched. I’ve attended weddings when the old china was entirely mismatched, and each place setting was stunning.
The games and activities were aimed towards children because this was a children’s party. Cupcake icing was taught to us. Of course, this is dependent on your skill level, but the youngsters just wanted to try it. They each took home decorated cupcakes.
Party Favors & Favor Bags
You can have a lot of fun with this using the Shabby Chic theme. We embellished ordinary brown paper bags with Printable Party Ideas Luggage Tags and Circle Labels with the visitors’ names and jute rope.
Calico bags are another option. Fill the bags with floral swaps or transfers, as well as travel-sized soaps, moisturizers, and shampoos. The majority of these were discovered at $2 stores and emporiums.
We also gave each of the attendees a beautiful Shabby Chic headband to take home and wear.
