Tonya Coleman here from Soireé Event Design, and I’m back with the “Trend Alert” where I share with you some of the hottest trends in party planning! Today’s guest post is all about the hot new trend — Personalized Backdrops.
Leading the way in this trend is Kate Aspen who now makes vinyl backdrops in many different styles and themes that can be personalized to add that special touch to your next party, bridal shower or wedding. Any of these would also be perfect as a backdrop for a photo booth! Check out how I used these personalized backdrops 3 different ways for 3 different types of events…
Use a Personalized Backdrop for a Bridal Shower Candy Table!
How fabulous is this “Something Blue” backdrop!? Perfect for a Tiffany’s themed bridal shower when personalized with the bride’s name and shower date. Here, I hung it behind a candy table and added a variety of white and blue candy to match the backdrop. I like to use clear containers to hold the candy so that the backdrop isn’t hidden too much since it adds such a wow factor to the table. I also kept the height of the items on the table low so the fabulous white bow wouldn’t be blocked.
Use a Personalized Backdrop for a Birthday Party Favor Table!
Next, I used their “Rustic Birthday” backdrop to create a scene for a dinosaur themed favor table for a first birthday party. The colors of the backdrop allow the bright vibrant colors of the dinosaur plush toys to pop! This backdrop comes personalized with the birthday boy/girl’s name.
Use a Personalized Backdrop for a Wine & Chocolate Wedding Bar!
Finally, I used this “Rustic Chalkboard” backdrop behind a self-serve wine and chocolate bar for a wedding. It comes personalized with the bride and groom’s names and wedding date which adds such a high-end touch to this bar. I also used many of Kate Aspen’s themed favors on the table that guests could pick up as they poured themselves a glass of wine or helped themselves to some sweet chocolate. How perfect are those personalized glittery gold hand fans that say “Love is Sweet”!?
