Here’s what confuses me. Why in tarnation are bath towels and chair covers so flipping expensive?! I’m talking about the chair covers for party times and weddings. I shopped around last year for my daughter’s birthday party and nearly soiled myself at the sheer magnitude of the cost. Even the rentals were stupid!
So I sat around for about a week looking like the “Thinker” sculpture. I thought of everything…sewing them myself. Uh no. Too much work and stress. Crepe paper. Nah…too fragile. Table covers? Too slippery. Pillowcases? Hmm. That could work. That could work!!
So I went to Sam’s Club and bought a case of 24 white Riegel pillowcases for $30, then trotted over to Michaels and got a couple rolls of tulle ($10 each) and ran home with my fingers and toes crossed. How ’bout the pillowcases were a perfect fit for your standard rental folding chair?! Who knew?! Plus they were mine to keep for future party times!
And here’s the final result! On a side note, 90% of the party decor was loot from the Dollar Store!
