Ever since Amy Atlas popularized the infamous dessert table, backdrops are essential to parties, events and weddings. They frame your table, help rid the area of dead space and often create a super duper wow factor. From large printed signs, to fringe garlands, to balloon walls, there are lots of ways to create a diy backdrop. I’ve designed loads of backdrops over the years, but my favorite are always simple, clean and end up being the easiest to create (like this one I created out of coffee filters). I find that using an existing blank wall or fence usually works the best. This particular diy backdrop took all but 15 minutes. I purchased a bundle of greenery at my local grocery store, pulled the pieces apart and pulled leaves off the bottom of the shrubs. Using Washi tape, I taped the greenery to a white wall, framing the dessert table below. This technique works great with flowers too, like in my Sunshine Party.
As always if you end up using this idea, I would love to see it! If you post on your social media sites use hashtag #lovetheday or just email the photos over.
