How to Decorate Your Huppah #5: Hang Ribbons from Poles

Huppah decorated with ribbonsOne in a series of posts on how to decorate your huppah…

Add color and movement to your huppah with long ribbons that catch the breeze. Ribbons make simple and inexpensive wedding decorations.

You can keep the look simple with one color, or combine ribbons in all the colors of your wedding to draw the huppah into the rest of your wedding décor.

To create the best effect, ribbons should hang down one-half to two-thirds the length of the huppah poles. And rather than matching up the ends of the ribbons, vary their lengths by a half inch or so to encourage them to move independently of each other.

Hoffman Huppah RibbonsTake a look at the joyous combination of ribbon colors that Barbara Hoffman of Maryland chose for her daughter’s Simplicity Huppah earlier this month. Each pole was tied with three ribbons chosen from a palette of orange, baby blue, ivory, pink, white, and apple green.

Here’s another decorative option that works well in combination with ribbons: Scatter Flower Petals on the Ground

How to Decorate Your Huppah #3: Drape Swags of Garland Between the Poles

Huppah decorated with garland swagsOne in a series of posts on how to decorate your huppah…

If your huppah has valances, that is, fabric pieces hanging at the sides, draping garland from pole to pole in front of the valances creates an interesting visual interplay of color and texture.

This is another approach that works best with fairly light garland, otherwise the huppah can look top heavy. Use greenery, flowers, or leafy herbs.

Use florist wire to attach the two ends of a length of garland to the tops of adjacent poles. Let the garland drape across the face of the valance.

For a more formal look, leave some garland hanging down at the poles. The ends of the garland should hang slightly lower than the lowest point of the draped section.

Huppahs.com’s poles, both the huppah poles for sale and huppah poles for rent, have circular screws at the top that are used for attaching the canopy and can also be used for attaching garland or other decorations.

How to Decorate Your Huppah #2: Attach Bouquets to Poles

chuppah-with-bouquetsOne in a series of posts on how to decorate your huppah…

You can evoke a world of different wedding styles depending on the types of flowers and other elements in the bouquets: romantic roses, shabby chic lavender, rustic sunflowers, wheat stalks tied with gingham ribbon, simple white hypericum berries, or bright pink and orange gerberas for full-on fun.

To make this work, your poles will have to have a good anchor to attach the bouquet; either an indentation at the top of the pole to which you can tightly tie ribbons or florist wire, or an anchor attached to the pole.

Huppahs.com’s poles, both huppah poles for sale and huppah poles for rent, have finials with indentations at the top that are often used to attach bouquets. The poles also have circular screws at the top that are used for attaching the canopy that can also be used to attach bouquets or other decorations.

How to Decorate a Huppah #1: Attach Garland to the Edge of the Canopy

The first in a series of huppah decorating ideas…

A garland of fresh leaves or flowers around the edge of the huppah canopy brings a bright energy to the wedding space. The garland should be fairly light-weight. Use light flowering branches, wildflowers, or herbs. You can DIY the garland or have your florist make it. Garland is also available from online florists.

Huppahs.com’s Simplicity Huppah was designed to make this type of decoration easy. The canopy has small loops around the edges to which you can easily attach your own garland with florist wire.
