Backed in Plaid
Dress your chairs to impress, but encourage friends to show up in jeans. Wrap chairs in cummerbund fashion, and tack with a stitch to anchor your burlap kilt. Add a single translucent plaid button for decoration. Wrap the Royal Stewart tartan around the middle of the burlap, tie with wide red grosgrain ribbon, and secure all cloth with an oversize laundry pin (available from www.steinlaufandstoller.com). Finish with a few jaunty pheasant feathers.
