Since beginning my blog and studying endless pictures of parties, I have noticed the importance of in party styling.  I don’t know when party backdrops became a ‘thing’, but they obviously have become an important part of a well-designed party.  This is one of my favorite backdrops I have seen, and I plan to use this idea sometime myself.  This was designed by Katie and Alice of Kalice Events.  They used over 50 handmade paper rosettes in designing this backdrop.  This makes an incredible impression as guests enter the party.

Let’s face facts, your walls or wallpaper is not necessarily themed to whatever party you are throwing at the moment.  If you need to create a frame to use for party backdrops, Anders Ruff offers a great tutorial on building a frame you can use again and again right here.

The party backdrop above was made by attaching the tulle onto a curtain rod which was hung on the wall with Command hooks.  I can’t emphasize the importance of the use of Command strips in creating a backdrop without damaging walls.  Command strips can help you create a backdrop anywhere!  If you have not discovered these little wonders, you need to add these to your party decorating tool box!
