HOW TO: STYLE YOUR OWN BACKDROP.

HOW TO: STYLE YOUR OWN BACKDROP.

Discover your inner styling and follow these 4 simple steps to creating a beautiful photo moment. Perfect for any theme or event, simply pick your hanging element, backdrop, furniture and decorative props for a snap-happy display.

Overhead elements are a magical way to set the ambience for an event. From fairy lights and vintage festoons to vibrant lanterns and even abstract shapes or cloud forms. Adding something overhead brings the viewers eye up into the space, elongating the venue and an illusion that it is bigger than it is. Hanging elements overhead is another way to enhance the colour or theme of an event. To revamp your sensible soiree to a circus themed party, subtle changes such as swapping warm bulbs for multicoloured is sure to enhance overall look.

Adding backdrops to your event create focal points. With the power of social media, it’s important to capture moments for marketing if your event is a promotional occasion. Media walls, floral backdrops and styled arbours created photo moments for not only personal memories, but to be shared online and create free promotion. These zones act as mini activities for people to be involved in and create entertainment for the night when a photobooth is added into the equation.

An important part of any event is the furniture. Not only for guests to rest and relax, but also to carry through the theme. The introduction of cane furniture can suggest a tropical, beach or Hampton vibe while velvet lounges or leather Chesterfield’s transport guests into an elegant setting. The importance of furniture layout is creating pods or zones. This expands the space, allowing people to spread out into the venue and use all of the designated areas without bunching into one spot.

The final touches of decorations are the parts that really can bring an event to life. For heavily themed events such as jungle escapes or Mexican fiestas, the addition of animals and giant palm trees will transport guests while parties with lawn games adds fun and excitement. Mirror balls for a disco dance and neon signage for a cocktail function, every little bit adds life and colour to your event. Don’t forget the centrepieces for your gala dinner. Not only a talking point for strangers, centrepieces can be custom creations to communicate the messaging of your event.
