Accent A Plain Wall
Venues can often be difficult to decorate if they contain high beams and lots of exposed brick that you can’t hang anything on. Use the tape to make a killer design along a beam and anchor it to the bottom of the wall with a hook for some seriously stunning decor.
Romantic DIY Lighting
Recreate this gorgeous lighting on a budget with pastel flagging tape, fairy lights, clear line, and large metal or bamboo hoop rings at your local craft store. Tie the flagging tape around the hoops like below, affix each hoop to the ceiling of your venue with clear line, and run fairy lights through once the hoops are up.
Decorate Chair Backs
Recreate this gorgeous chair back decor using flagging tape and the same colour palette. Simply cut four to five strands various lengths. Attach them to the chair by tieing them around each side. Affix a bouquet to each seat on the aisle, or every other seat along the aisle, to save on flower costs. Photos Courtesy Pinterest
