Haven't got a clue how to decorate the church, I am not a fan of Tulle Bows and am at a loss as to what else I could do with the pew ends. Any ideas greatly welcome. Thanks :wv

hey j4m...you could do ribbon bows or if bows arent your thing you can just do single flowers which are very elegant or some fern and gyp is nice or you could do berries etc depending on the time of year! hth

Thanks Mental Rebel was thinking of the ribbon bows until the florist told me how Old Fashioned that is now and not the done thing I was left :-8 . Aparently its Tulle all the way.......Might try the flower approach. The florist was trying to get me to put Gerberas on the seats in the tulle bows but I am not a gerbera fan (they are just like a huge daisy to me) Might just go with the ribbon bows and make them myself if i dont get any better ideas/suggestions.

|I'm thinking of having small silver buckets, tied with a ribbon to the pew and filled with hydrangeas. You don't need many blooms as the flowers are so big. Saw it in an issue of martha stewart weddings. Bought it recently in Easons.

I'm growing pots of lavender (which I will pick and dry next summer) and tying them with twine. I'll put a little essential oil in them to enhance the lovely calming smell

In comparison, I had no pew ends and nobody noticed! :o0 Lovely idea though.
