Ever noticed that the parties that really stand out have that certain extra something? You’ll probably find that extra something is an amazing backdrop, perfectly styled and often expensively out of reach.
Backdrops are certainly are great way to add that big wow factor, but as we will show you, they needn’t cost you an arm and a leg.
Take a look at our top picks.
What’s a party without streamers! Hang them anyway you like, in garlands or hang them from the ceiling, but streamers are the simplest and most cost effective way to create a fabulous backdrop.
A row of balloons across the top adds a bit more fun and interest.
Whether they’re made of paper or fabric buntings really add that finishing touch and best of all they can be used over and over or added to a bedroom for a sweet decorating idea.
Hang in a single length or group together behind your dessert table for a more textural look.
A length of fabric is the perfect instant backdrop. It’s cost effect and even the least creative person can add an amazing backdrop to their party table without having to pull their hair out.
Think stripes for a circus or pirate theme, floral and ginghams for a sweet tea party. There’s a fabric for every party them or style. Just look at your theme and find a print to compliment it.
Stores like Spotlight, Lincraft and Ikea have super cheap lengths of fabric in every colour and print imaginable.
A couple of meters is usually more than enough to drape behind your table and if you really want to create a continual theme, add a strip to the table as a table runner.
