A high chair usually consists of a frame of molded plastic or metal tubing and an attached seat with a safety belt and a footrest. There are still a few old-fashioned wooden high chairs out there with a removable tray or arms that lift the tray over a baby's head, although they aren't always as comfortable for babies as the modern, form-fitting models on the market now, and most of them aren't certified as meeting the latest safety standards. You'll also find a few hybrid units, which can double as a swing or convert into other types of gear, such as a chair for an older child or a play table.
Want an inexpensive yet elegant touch to your table decor? Chair sashes add a lovely accent to a dinner table and don't cost too much to rent. You can tie the sash horizontally with a bow or knot, or as I did, tie the sash vertically to change up the look on the chair. Another wedding chair decor idea is to make Just Married signs and place them on the back of the bride and groom chairs. For our wedding, we took two photos, superimposed Just Married on them and then enlarged and mounted the photos on foam core and placed the signs over the chair sashes.
You'll want a stable, sturdy model that can stand up to spilling, kicking, and regular cleaning for at least a year (some babies can't bear to sit in a high chair after that). A chair with a tray that can be released with one hand is also a plus. Picture your baby occupying your other arm while you're opening and closing the tray; it's just one of the many physical feats you'll be asked to master as a parent.
Being practical (isn't that a nice word for cheap, or Scottish?), I have used whatever chair I had available in the house for my office chair. I've been doing that since 1985 when I started working at home. Being practical isn't always so practical, based on my discomfort and back problems.
Perhaps the greatest contribution stacking chairs have to offer is their versatility in both design and function. They have a lightweight design which allows them to be moved from one place to another with minimal effort and are small enough to fit in just about anywhere. Many stacking chairs are also designed for both indoor or outdoor usage, allowing the purchaser to get the most for their money whether they are needed for an indoor lunch one day or for an outdoor wedding the next. They are designed to be able to hold up to continuous moving and shifting with their rugged construction, although some materials are better than others for this. Not matter the size of the event, their small foot print allows for these chairs to accommodate more guests than other pieces of furniture would.
