This past week we had the honor of being a continuing supporter and exhibitor at the 2015 USITT Conference and Stage Expo. USITT which stands for the United States Institute of Theater and Technology, is the premier annual event for the theatre industry. We were so excited to highlight our beautiful backdrops to such a multi faceted industry. It was such a pleasure meeting and learning with individuals and companies throughout the three days of the #USITT Stage Expo. We highlighted the intricate detail of our hand painted backdrops by showcasing our 40’ x 20’ Palace Interior 3B Gold backdrop along the wall of the Stage Expo and our smaller 10’ by 10’ Palace Interior 6 Gold backdrop at our booth. All our hand painted backdrops utilize brush and airbrush techniques.
Our hand painted backdrops (available in many sizes) are the perfect complement to any theatrical production, no matter the size of the theater. Utilizing the ideal hand painted backdrop for your production provides and creates the visual imagery that makes the scene come to life. In our opinion, there is nothing that compares to the sight of your actors in front of our hand painted, highly detailed backdrops! For those of you interested in different themes for shows, we are more than happy to work with you to provide you a listing of all of our beautiful backdrops that will transform your theatrical production.
Our Palace Interior Gold backdrop is an extraordinary example of our custom backdrop rental services in action. A valued customer wanted to create their own unique custom backdrop to transform their wedding reception, which in time has become a popular rental among many of our customers. We view you as the trendsetters and the innovators and are always looking to accommodate your needs with our custom backdrop rental services.

This past month Backdrops Beautiful had the absolute pleasure of sponsoring the ISES Ultimate Wedding Event at RAIN in the Palms Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, NV. This event, which was organized and designed by the talented Patrick Peel of Hello Las Vegas, utilized eight of our 40′ x 10′ Rain Forest Backdrops to create a lush and all encompassing event. Using this many backdrops we were able to wrap the entire room and surround all the attendees in beautiful rain forest scenery. To fully create this complete immersive experience caterers, florists, dancers and decorators all came together under Patrick’s guidance to create what truly lived up to its name as the ULTIMATE wedding event! No wonder this was the only event at this years Catersource EventSolutions Conference and Expo to sell out weeks before the event!
Backdrops can add to your event from a small 10′ x 10′ photo op to eight 40′ x 10′ backdrops to wrap a room as was done in Las Vegas. Whether you are wrapping a nightclub in Las Vegas, an outside pavilion or a conference hall, wrapping allows you to immerse your guests in any style of decor and transform your venue into anything from a tropical forest to a Beachside resort.
Interested in wrapping your next event? We have several backdrop sets that are all designed as panels to flow together as one, thus wrapping your venue to transport your attendees to wherever your ideas take them. Give us a call or shoot us an email!

Last month, while the entire country was covered in snow we spent two amazing days at the The Special Events conference and expo in Anaheim, CA. This year marked another huge success and it was significant to see how the events industry is constantly changing and evolving and as always connecting with existing and new customers and event professionals from around the world is gratifying.
This year we showcased our Grand Mansion 1 backdrop which was inspired by the Casino Royale in Monte Carlo. We decided to showcase this particular backdrop as this years’ TSE theme was southern California and what screams so-cal more than grand mansions like those found in the Hollywood Hills! To further embellish on that ‘oh-so-famous’ ambiance of the grandeur and decadence of Hollywood, we drove up our founder’s 1955 Jaguar XK120 roadster, this was the car that the likes of Marilyn Monroe, James Dean and other celebrities owned and drove in the 50’s. Driving the car out of the Anaheim convention center was quite a thrill as exhibitors were like the paparazzi snapping photos and applauding, perhaps just as James Dean may have in the 50s!
This year we showcased our new Stylized Beach 1 backdrop on the TSE Live! Performance Stage. This backdrop was inspired by both the beauty of southern California as well as this years TSE logo featuring orange, green, and blue palm trees. The amazing performances at this years show included Three Waiters International, Paint Jam!, The Singers in Disguise, and a beautiful violin trio (featured above).
We would also like to congratulate Patricia Daniel of The Northside Hospital Foundation who won our Free Backdrop Rental Raffle!
Thank you to everyone who stopped by our booth and registered to win.
See you next year at TSE in Fort Lauderdale, FL!

This week we exhibited in New York for BizBash and we decided on showcasing our Frozen backdrop. It is evident that nowadays kids have a say in the decision making of their event just as much as adults do. I remember growing up and having no real “say” in what I wanted for my parties. Actually, I had no say – Period!. My parents would take care of pretty much everything themselves. They would handle everything from the décor to the invitation list. I would be lucky if I ever saw any of my school friends there. In reality, I saw none. It was always family and family friends. Well, my parents friends and their children whom instantly would become my friends. Thinking of it now makes me realize how things have changed and quiet honestly I’m okay that I didn’t have to stress over that in my childhood.
I now see my sister on how she goes on about planning her two girl’s events. Specifically my god-daughter’s birthday parties and how involved she is with everything. She is given the option of choosing her own theme all the way to what she wants to eat. Let’s face it; kids are now playing the role of event planners regardless if parents want to admit it. They control us- the end!
