How to Decorate a Wedding Reception With Tobacco Canvas


When presented thoughtfully, light tan tobacco canvas can add rustic-yet-chic flair to wedding decor. Tobacco canvas is very lightweight and often inexpensive, which can help you stretch your wedding budget. The rustic look and feel of the canvas can transform your wedding into a laid-back-but-country-casual affair.

Things You'll Need

  • Tobacco canvas
  • Scissors
  • Ribbon
  • Wind sheets of the tobacco canvas around the wedding arch or gazebo to add a soft touch to the area above where the bride and groom will exchange their vows.

  • Wind the tobacco canvas around lighting fixtures, railings and any poles or pillars present in the wedding venue.

  • Drape the tobacco canvas in trees so it blows and billows in the wind during the wedding ceremony and pictures.

  • Use the tobacco canvas as a substitute for traditional table linens, laying it over tables and chairs as tablecloths and chair covers.

  • Tie a strip of tobacco canvas around the middle of each chair back and tie it into a bow as a rustic chair sash.

  • Cut small squares out of the tobacco canvas and use it to cover favor boxes and jars. For example, if you are giving mason jars full of homemade jam for a wedding favor, drape the square of canvas over the jar lid and tie it down with a ribbon or strands of straw.
