Party Table Backdrops & 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!

And now for


Some of you may know that I was once a painter- or actually a tole painter, which is essentially a dead art or craft these days. Much of this style of painting is now considered Kitsch.


Not to offend any current and active tole painters- I am sure there a few still out there doing it, but it has become a bit dated now for home decor.  Back in the day (early 1990’s), I painted everything, from home decor, holiday decorations-mostly Christmas ornaments, and I painted on just about anything, but wood was my preference.  It was called Bauernmalerei, Rosemaling, and Hindeloopen.  It is a painting style that came over to the United States from Germany and Austria.  We had so much of this painted stuff by me in our home.


I sold most of it off but by 2004 and I could hardly give it away by that time.  Oh, all those hours and hours of painting little teardrops, dots, swirls, and flourishes.  It was relaxing to say the least.

Shortly after moving to Kansas City,  I was asked by a local Mexican restaurant owner, of  The Salty Iguana, to paint an iguana.  Nope, I did not get paid for it- he has a chain of restaurants in the area and everytime he opens a new location, he calls upon local residents to participate in the interior decorating of the restaurants.  Its kind of brilliant, really – free interior design mostly done by the locals and each resturant has about a hundred or more of these painted or decorated iguanas.  It was certainly fun doing it and reminded me of my old tole painting days.  My iquana was a replica of the famous painting –

The Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh




If you are a local and happen to like The Salty Iguana- you can see my Van Gogh hack at the 8420 W 135th St, Overland Park, KS location. Its way in the back on the West side.
