Chiavari Chairs have long been known as the most popular choice of seating for special occasions such as weddings, and upscale events such as the Grammy Awards and even Dancing With The Stars! Chiavari chairs are so elegant and beautiful on its own but if you want to create something different try dressing up the chiavari chairs with satin ribbons, organza sashes or fresh flowers.

Give your room an open feel & highlights the table décor

When your guests walk into a room filled with chiavari chairs, it is a refreshing and dynamic utilization of space. Since chiavari chairs entail a non-enclosure design, your table cloth and décor can be highlighted with a refine balance that you and your guest can appreciate. Regular banquet chairs can cover the table setup and linens can sometime suffocate space and make the setup look cluttered, chiavari chairs simply opens the entire room up.

 Ideal design for limitless creativity

If you’re a bride with an insatiable desire to decorate, chiavari chairs provides a perfect canvas. Decorate till your heart’s content! Add colorful sashes of satin or organza, loop it around vertically or horizontally, double the sashes for contrasting colors, use different color accents either with flowers or even jewelry, truly the skies the limit. Really there are no rules, you are the artist of your own event.


However, Chiavari Chairs are already perfect as they are – bare and beautiful. An ideal ingredient that doesn’t need enhancement or further accentuation. Brides don’t have to spend more on accessories when you’ve already said everything with the ideal wedding chair. With this essential component in place, now you can focus on the table, the dinnerware, and the centerpiece. Chiavari chairs provide the perfect foundation to elevate your décor to a totally new level.

Birmingham Venue Offers Bachelorette Party and Bachelor Party Suggestions

Posted in: Bachelor and Bachelorette Parties | No Comments »

Bachelor and Bachelorette Parties have a reputation that they do not deserve! In the past they were full of seductive games and activities, lots of alcohol and bad memories. They have even been memorialized by Hollywood in this manner. But, most are actually rather low key events.

The friends of the groom-to-be or the bride-to-be would love to have some special “sending off time” just prior to the wedding. There are lots of ideas to make this time special.

Here are a few:

This event is free for the groom or bride! It is paid for by the attendees or the bridal party members!

It should not offend the bride or groom in any way. That includes the bride for a bachelor party and the groom for the bachelorette party! No one wants to bail out their soon to be spouse because a few of his or her friends got carried away!

They should be fun! There is no rule that a party cannot be fun without sex and booze! Plenty of fun things can be done that are sensible and at the same time amusing… be creative!

All people invited to this party should also be invited to the actual wedding… whether or not they can attend.

These parties SHOULD NOT be the night prior to the wedding! Remember the wedding sets the stage for a marriage. Both the bride and groom are nervous enough. They should not need extra strength Tylenol to get through their wedding day!

The party can be an all day event starting with a sporting event for the groom or a spa day for the bride followed by the actual party at a special venue.

Food should be planned and tasty.

The venue should be interesting.

Entertainment should be modest and non-touching… no reason to give either a memory they are afraid to share with their future spouse.

Take care of “over-the-limit” issues. Provide safe transportation back home. Nothing would create a worse memory for all than an auto accident or a DUI!

Finally, consider inviting the spouse to be! Have the girls hold their party one place and the guys another and then meet up!

This is not necessarily a bad idea. Given that these events can be lots of fun, offer a “late arrival” time for the better-half so both can be reassured that “nothing happened” ☺!

Birmingham Bachelorette or Bachelor Party: Choosing the Perfect Venue for Your Party!

Posted in: Bachelor and Bachelorette Parties | No Comments »

It is traditional for a soon-to-be-married guy or gal to have a bachelor or bachelorette party, hosted by the groomsmen or bridesmaids. Some of these are surprises, others are known in advance. No matter which you are having, if you would like to host this party at a private venue, you need to find the perfect place!

In my mind, the perfect venue for a Bachelor Party or a Bachelorette Party is first and foremost… PRIVATE! No party in my mind should be in a restaurant or bar. Too Many Witnesses!

It also should have plenty of space for all of the partying, a great sound system, lots of on-site parking, easy to find and most of all a discrete staff.

We are not suggesting a party full of debauchery, but no use having your neighbor come up to you a few weeks later to tell you about how they saw you partying at the local hotel, or sports bar!

Is should have a stage for the band or DJ.

It also should be affordable, have easy access to a variety of alcohol packages and have a great atmosphere.

The Venue should be interesting and have a history of hosting parties!

Woodrow Hall is pleased to offer just such a place. This venue has been hosting parties for nearly a century!

Our newly opened Magnolia Room offers a private entrance, lots of space for up to about 100 seated guests, a great sound system, vintage atmosphere with a hundred years of partying experience! Larger parties can be held in the grand ballroom: Woodrow Hall and the associated Foyer, where up to 350 people can easily be hosted for your affair.
