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!

Remember to stop by any of my shops for all your diy crafting supplies, party decorations and favors and wedding decor.

Wedding Color Schemes Using Pantone’s 2017 Color Of The Year

WEDDING COLOR SCHEMES USING PANTONE’S COLOR OF THE YEAR

The colors you choose for your wedding day can come from anywhere — it’s all about discovering the best reflection of your style. Maybe you have one color in mind, but are wondering what combination will create a harmonious palette? That’s where I come in with wedding color inspiration to help you with your wedding planning.

Although the greens shown here are not an exact match to Pantone’s color of the year for 2017, Greenery, shown below

A bride in 2017 can substitute Greenery in the color schemes represented here and it would look stunning paired with any of these other colors.  In case you are wondering why you would include any shade of green at a wedding?  It may seem like an odd color choice for a wedding but actually it is one of the best colors for easily incorporating into a multi-color palette.  Pantone says this about their pick for the color of the year,  “Greenery is a versatile “trans-seasonal” shade that lends itself to many color combinations and pairs well with neutrals, brights, deeper shades, pastels, metallic colors and leaves an enduring presence.”  So, it is actually an ideal color at a wedding this year.

No worries, if this intense brighter shade of green does not appeal to you, I have added a few deeper shades below that might make adding the color green to your wedding celebration more comfortable.

First, feel free to stop by my I DO Wedding & Bridal Shop to browse stunning custom made pinwheels, favors, and other wedding decor for your special day coming up-

After much research, these are a few of the popular wedding color schemes for 2017 that include a shade of green.  So, grab a cup of coffee and let’s get started!

This color palette of gold, burgundy and a deep hunter green is traditional yet the inclusion of the color of gold is trendy right now.  Glitter gold and metallic foil accents are popular and easy to add at the reception tables.  Like these easy DIY painted wine bottle vases filled with fresh flowers –

Banners, favors and other wedding decor in gold are great at the bachelorette party or bridal shower as well.

Add these fun glitter gold diamond rings to cupcakes!

Now for the last wedding palette color schemes that include shades of green. . .  love this sage, blush and rose wedding color palette-

And finally, the popular color of gold again paired with peach and a deep shade of green.

  I hope you 2017 brides are starting to plan your spring and summer weddings now – to countdown to your wedding date.  Remember, early planning is less stress, as you get closer to the big day.
