4TH OF JULY AND BIRTHDAY PICNIC PARTY IDEAS

Who doesn’t love red and white checkered gingham at any outdoor birthday party or at a 4th of July celebration? It’s easy enough to add a little blue into your Independence Day party or barbecue with a picnic theme too!  This theme is so versatile for any outdoor event.  Let’s get to some great picnic styled party tables –

This creative combination of polka dots and gingham at this Teddy Bears Picnic party is so on the spot! How easy is that to pull off too- they ran a few yards of cut red gingham fabric vertically over the white tablecloth for the food table.  The added height in the back is a great idea too.  Get all your gingham party decorations at The Party Fetti Shop!

This picnic party features fun coordinating pinwheels – perfect for outdoors in the sunshine!

That tissue tassel garland swaying in the breeze are perfect for an outdoor table backdrop.

This gazebo features red white and blue hanging fans and fans are always an easy way to decorate at any picnic party or 4th of July party.  They can be hung anywhere or layered on a wall behind a food table.

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!
