Party Table Backdrops & Backgrounds

PARTY TABLE BACKDROPS AND BACKGROUNDS

Today is a roundup of inspiration for party table backdrops and backgrounds.  These tablescapes should give you some ideas for setting up your dessert or food table at your next party. Let’s get started with this adorable ladybug party.  How creative are those honeycomb balls with added punched black paper circles made into the ladybug head and antennae and the ladybug spots.  So cute!  Ladybugs are a perfect theme for a summer party too!

This background is a giant printed graphic poster just added to an even larger fabric covered board. I love this idea, but the printing cost may get a little pricey.  Another alternative that would cost less is the fabric covered board below with a small framed birthday sign or letter banner centered in the middle.

I love that they used part of the green vinyl tablecloth as a valance topper at the top of the fabric background. The polka dot balloons in a small bouquet create a balanced height at each side too.

Confetti balloons are all the rage- and just two flanking the back sides of each end of the table create a stunning background with height!  The added floor length balloon tissue tassel garland add a finishing touch.

This bride has simple giant white balloons arranged in an arch with added greenery and florals for a beautiful, yet neutral, photo background.

Paper fans on the wall are always an easy go-to for a party table background- but they can be dressed up with custom cut designs available in The Party Fetti Shop.

A mix of all sizes of pinwheels are so whimsical and super easy to create a party table background.  So easy to create this random arrangement on the wall. Create your own with pinwheels from Pinwheel Pretties.

Last are two entirely simple diy backdrops made with crepe paper streamers.  The added tissue fan above, for the sun, is adorable.  The rainbow streamer backdrop below is so easy too! Seven bright strips of crepe streamer taped to the back of the wall and simply run across the top and front of a basic white tablecloth- would take five minutes to make and so inexpensive.  The top could feature small white balloons or use my cloud tutorial from a previous blog post for  making your own cloud topper.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today.  I hope these party backdrops have inspired you to start planning your next party!

15 WEDDING SEND OFF IDEAS

WEDDING SEND OFF IDEAS THAT BREAK TRADITION
Throwing birdseed at the bride and groom for their send off is so yesterday.  There are so many new inventive less traditional send offs that create a fun experience for the wedding guests and lifelong memory for the newly married couple.
Streamer-Ribbon-Wand-Send-Off-600x400
SPARKLERS are, by far, one of the the most popular wedding send offs couples choose these days. Followed right behind the new fad of releasing lanterns into the night sky.

Wedding-Heart-Shaped-Sparklers-Set-of-12_1024x1024

Fireworks

 It can be something as simple as a few roman candles for your car to drive through, or guests can use projectiles. Country venues are ideal for this send off.  Be sure to clear it with the venue and make sure to get proper permits and hire the correct staff, and remember to always have a fire extinguisher near by.

Sequins/Glitter Confetti

Just remember you’ll be finding GLITTER CONFETTI on your body and clothing for weeks after your wedding. Not the most eco-friendly option, but gorgeous nonetheless! And the photos will truly sparkle!  Don’t skimp on the packaging for your confetti, lots or CUSTOM CONFETTI ENVELOPES are available and make the guests feel like they are opening a little gift too!

​Cap Guns

Really cute idea, especially if you are gun aficionados. The smoke will capture the flash from the photo and can have a cool effect, plus who doesn’t love a good cap gun?

Snow

Perfect for the winter wedding.  Fake snow will look great in photos and your friends will have a wonderful time playing in the snow.

Pinata

Okay, this is not really a typical send-off, but is a totally a fun and amazing way to end your wedding. You can fill the pinata with something like candy, or with little liquor bottles, or any fun adult themed favor. If you are going that route, just make sure that there are no kids at the party.

Balloons

Balloons are the hottest alternative to sending lanterns off. You can put different colored TISSUE CONFETTI CIRCLES , glow sticks or cheap led lights inside the balloons to really let the night shine. You’ll be able to get beautiful photos while they are still on the ground, and then capture the lift off for an ultra spectacular end to your night.

​Lavender

Lavender, lavender, lavender. Perfect for purple themed weddings, or for those looking out for the environment, or for those who just love lavender in general. Bonus? It smells really nice!

Picture

​Airplanes

I think this idea is super cute for a teacher or a pilot bride or groom, the white paper will shine in the flash of the camera, and you’ll get a amazing action photos. The most important part is that everyone will have a really great time throwing them at you; this is something very unique and memorable.

​Oatmeal

Oatmeal is actually not bad at all for the environment, it won’t get stuck in hard to reach places for weeks to come, and it’s great for hair (in case some lands all up in there).

​Glow Sticks

Glow sticks are super fun and your wedding guests will love waving them in the air long after you leave. You can choose the rainbow colored ones, or coordinate the color to your wedding color scheme.

​Silly String

This is going to get messy, but what’s more fun to do at the end of the wedding than drowning your friend in silly string. You won’t be able to walk directly in to the limo at the end of the night, but everyone will be talking about this for years to come.

​Confetti

Who doesn’t want their fairy tale ending with a movie finish? CONFETTI is the original throwing super star and no one can deny how spectacular it looks in photos.  There are a bunch of creative ways to shoot the confetti too, like these PUSH POPS.

​Flowers

Flower petals are biodegradable and great for the environment and so classy chic.

​Marshmallows

SUPER fun, and the bigger the marshmallows, the bigger the impact in the photos. Beware, this send off will leave behind a gooey mess, so be sure to put someone in the wedding party in charge of clean up after you are long gone.

Bubbles

BUBBLES create the most whimsical send off. Easy and elegant and clean and beautiful. Giving guests single BUBBLE WANDS is very cost effective, but if you wanted to splurge for a few people, maybe the wedding party, to have bubble guns, your pictures can look purely magical.

So go on out there, think outside the box and give your friends a billion reasons to never forget your wedding.
