How to hide ugly water barrels on tent

Radhika, on July 5, 2014 at 10:26 PM Posted in Style and Décor 0 7

Our wedding is on a rooftop patio. Dinner will be under a tent that needs decorating. I need ideas to hide/disguise water barrels that hold the tent down. Don't want to do water barrel covers. Help, please.

    You would kind of have to do a cover if you wanna hide them. But maybe take them from tulle or a fabric matching your colors.

    I would do matching fabric tablecloths with some kind of decoration like bouquets of flowers on top or even framed pictures of you.

    Thank you, ladies. Both good ideas on tulle and greenery. Not sure what I should do about the triangle that strap makes...

    I would probably do table clothes as well, with centerpieces on top.

    Can you drape fabric from the corners to cover the whole thing?

    Does anyone have a good solution to this? My stepdaughter's wedding is also on a rooftop and she isn't happy with the tarp-style covers. We found some decent skirting that covers the side, but we're still trying to cover the tops. They aren't flat, so that's a problem, but she ordered lanterns to go on top. We need to cover the curved plastic tops of the barrels with something.. Help!! TIA Smiley smile

    I would start a new discussion as this one was in 2014 and may not receive any responses.
