About Us

Ribbons & Bows is a small, family run business which offers a professional yet truly personal service.

Ribbons & Bows was set up by Sarah and her mother Barbara. Sarah has extensive experience in event planning and Barbara has long been involved in the wedding industry having previously made wedding cakes for a number of hotels across the North East and Derbyshire.

Originally based in Oxfordshire, we were the preferred provider for some of the region’s finest hotels. Upon starting a family Sarah put the business on hold and returned to the North East. She and her mother have now re-established Ribbons & Bows and are looking forward to providing a first class service.

We pride ourselves on our attention to detail and personal touch – the service we provide is second to none.


Chair Covers

Our chair covers are made of the highest quality fabric and have a soft, cotton feel which drapes beautifully. The covers are available in classic white and ivory and have been tailor made to fit a number of banqueting chairs. We also provide lycra covers in white which will fit almost any style of chair.


We provide beautiful organza sashes and these are available in over 100 colours. If we do not stock your desired colour, we will source the sashes for you. We are confident that our sashes can be matched to your chosen colour theme.

All of our sashes are over-locked to prevent fraying

Your Wedding

Why not make your chosen wedding venue even more special by transforming the chairs with our elegant white or ivory covers. These striking finishing touches will really create the ‘wow’ factor for you and your guests.

With over 100 colours to choose from in our organza sashes, we are sure we can match and complement your chosen colour theme.

We do not hold all of our colours in stock but if you let us know the colour you would like we can source the sashes and send you samples to help you to make your selection.

The covers and sashes work wonders on their own to transform your venue. However, if you want to add an extra special touch we can work with you to incorporate other aspects of your chosen theme, for example, including flowers, butterflies or diamante brooches on the chair backs.

We know that you have much more important things to focus on on your big day and that you do not need the added stress of fitting chair covers. We want to ensure you enjoy your day to the full and so take the stress away from you by providing a full fitting and collection service.


We can provide chair covers and sashes for any special event or occasion. With a range of different colours and fabrics to choose from we are sure to be able to match your chosen colour scheme and create that memorable first impression for you and your guests.

As chair covers and sashes can be tailor made they are an ideal addition to any corporate function. Just let us know your corporate colours or chosen colour scheme and we will source the appropriate covers and sashes for your event.
