Networking with Chameleons

I finally made it to a NACE meeting/event in February and I was super excited to learn about a new design trend for weddings & events that is now available at Classic Party Rentals in Charlotte!
There was some fun mingling and I got a chance to meet a few new people in the industry which is always good! I also got the chance to catch up with some vendors I hadn't seen in a while.
After the "cocktail hour" we walked the plush pink carpet into the tent for dinner & the presentation on
Chameleon Chairs. These chairs are amazing and the design options are truly endless!
You start with the basic "skeleton" of the chair {which is certainly pretty enough to stand on its own, in my opinion!} and then choose from dozens of options for covers that come in various colors, materials, patterns and even lengths. You can also change the pad of the chair and add a "sash" or "belt" for that little something extra! I love how you can create a chair that will fit into any color scheme or decor!

Here is the “skeleton” of the chair.
Pretty on its own, I think!

Three great examples of how versatile this product is!
The first example is a more casual fabric & style.
The zebra print is a bit more bold & modern and the
classic ivory ruching with the rhinestone accent
is perfect for a formal affair.

Here is a display of several of the design options that are offered.
Everything is mix & match so the combinations are endless!

There was even a contest for some of the
meeting attendees to participate in!

Check out her fabulous jewelry, headbands, & custom wall decor here! Big thanks to her for taking such great shots of this event and for letting me use them in my blog!

Leave a comment to let me know which one is your favorite or how you might incorporate such fun chairs into your wedding decor
{or even at home- I saw several I would LOVE to find a place for at my house!}
