How to Decorate Your Huppah #6: Wrap Garland Around the Poles

Huppah garland wrapped around poles
One in a series of posts on how to decorate your huppah…

This is another huppah decorating option that works especially well for outdoor weddings. If you are using a huppah or poles from Huppahs.com, attach the garland to the screw at the top of the pole with florist wire. Anchor it to the bottom of the pole with florist tape.

To create a balanced look, always start at the top of the poles and wind the greenery or flowers around all of the poles the same number of times.

Consider carefully the direction in which you wrap the garland or the overall effect could end up looking unbalanced and a bit wonky. The easiest approach is to wrap all the pieces of garland in the same direction — clockwise or counter-clockwise — around the poles.

Alternatively, as in the illustration above, start at the top of the poles and wrap the garland on the two left poles in a clockwise direction, and wrap the garland on the right poles counter-clockwise. In this way, the viewer’s eyes are drawn up and away from the center of the huppah space, creating a light and open feeling under the huppah.
