We’re so excited to relive this booth transformation that happened at BizBashLA last month. So many people ask us how our backdrops can transform a space. We think pictures do us the best justice. While setting up our booth for BizBashLA, we noticed an exhibitor next to us renting casino tables and all the gambling fixings. What a fun concept! We loved seeing their Casino rentals. However, we knew something was missing from their booth. Check out the before picture of ACE High Casino Rentals booth below:
The tables looks great, right? However, the white background completely takes away from their product when it should be enhancing it. With our extensive inventory, we knew we had the perfect Casino backdrop that would transform their booth. We offered to ship our backdrop overnight to be at the show the very next day. ACE High Casino Rentals was more than welcoming to our suggestion. They were eager to see how our backdrop could enhance their booth. Our backdrop arrived in the morning before the Expo. We quickly hung our Casino backdrop at their booth and it was effortlessly transformed. See the after picture below:
It was so fun to see this booth come to life. The vibrant backdrop complemented the Casino tables perfectly. It enhanced their product and easily conveyed to all of the attendees exactly what they do. For us, we love seeing a transformation like this because we’re able to enhance a fellow exhibitors’ booth and convey their product in the best way possible.
This transformation inspires us to continue to create more backdrops. Ones that will enhance many trade shows, events, recitals, and performances to come! Have you had an incredible transformation because of our backdrops? Share the before and after pictures with us and we’ll feature them on a future blog post!

Have you ever planned a themed event & thought about an effortless way to instantly transform your space? Maybe you thought that it didn’t exist? Once you see these images from the Under the Sea themed Awards Gala at NACE Experience in Ft. Lauderdale it may change your mind. This was such a stunning event and we are overjoyed that we could be a part of it!
Our Coral Reef Series adorned the walls of the gala creating a the perfect background for the event. Our underwater backdrops complemented the beautiful décor elements, from the furniture (AFR Furniture Rental) to the linens (Creative Coverings) to the bar (Just Bars) and beyond (Quest Drape). The wonderful Susan Jaffe of Pieces of Dreams Events, Chad Everett from Galaxy Productions , and Jamie Oristano from Just Bars put on this incredible event. The design elements were incredible and theme made the event even that much more fun.
As the night progressed, the lights dimmed and the laser show began in conjunction with the incredible music. It is truly amazing to see how lighting can not only completely alter the mood of the function, but how it can also transform the look of our hand-painted backdrops. We loved witnessing the before and after of how the mood and lighting enhanced this event to the next level.
The Under the Sea theme was perfect as the NACE Experience Gala was held at the Diplomat Resort and Spa in Hollywood, Florida. This resort is on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean with many of the rooms overlooking the expansive, beautiful ocean. It’s an oasis that instantly makes you feel like you’re on vacation. With the ocean so close, the Under the Sea theme couldn’t be more appropriate. This was such a fabulous night and such an incredible event. It was wonderful to be a part of the Awards Gala and to see so many wonderful people in the industry be honored for their talents! We are so excited to see what NACE has in store for next year at NACE Experience in Houston.

Last month we had the pleasure of exhibiting at BizBash Florida in Fort Lauderdale. We were so excited to travel to Florida to connect with attendees and other exhibitors. We showcased our gorgeous Garden Gazebo backdrop. This backdrop was painted side by side with our Garden Fountain backdrop. We had such fun connecting with event professionals. We talked all things events – décor, design, planning, & much more. We love discussing unique concepts and developing transformative design ideas to impact future events.
This backdrop was a product of our Custom Rental Service. This service gives you the creativity and ability to Create your Own backdrop to rent! We worked with an Event Planner to develop the concept of two 10′ x 10′ backdrops painted side by side. This makes a beautiful 20′ x 10′ garden scene with the ability to use these backdrops in different ways. You can use them next to each other or in different places at the same event. This can create a cohesive, beautiful look at your next event!
There are so many reasons we love exhibiting at BizBash. One of them is connecting with other amazing exhibitors and our esteemed partners. Quest Drape is an absolutely fabulous company and they provided us with our pipe and base. Pipe and base rental is key when renting a backdrop and Quest Drape has locations nationwide to do so! Quest Drape makes it as easy as possible. They deliver pipe and base directly to the doorstep of your event. It’s so easy to use their pipe and base to effortlessly hang our backdrops! Our backdrops come with grommets along the top and ties to easily fasten the backdrop to the pipe. Our backdrops also have pole pockets along the bottom to easily weigh down the backdrop to minimize wrinkles! We’re already looking forward to the next BizBash in Los Angeles!

After some looking, we definitely can. After all, traditional magic isn’t magic without rabbits coming out of a hat!
Our Pond 3 Bridge backdrop is the perfect Spring scene in a romantic, lush garden. The sun peaking through providing the perfect lighting within the background. This serene pond full of water lilies and surrounded by lush plants and beautiful flowers. The bridge provides the perfect access to walk over the pond into the deep edges of the garden. This new backdrop is completely romantic and utterly gorgeous.
This Stage Skyline backdrop sets the Hollywood style stage with a stunning skyline. When you stand in the center of this new backdrop, the spotlight is directly on you. It’s an easy way to bring the Hollywood life to your next event. All of your attendees will get to live the red carpet life for the night.

We traveled to Salt Lake City to be a part of one of our favorite theater trade shows, USITT. We loved meeting so many students with passionate aspirations and talented theater directors and stage managers. The heartbeat of the theater industry can be felt through the many USITT Sessions and, of course, on the stage expo floor.
For the backdrop showcase, we chose to highlight our Paris Opera House backdrop. It showcases the high-detail and intricate work of our designers and artists. This backdrop is truly a show stopper. We were so excited that our hand-painted backdrop was next to the Electronic Theatre Controls booth. We loved the student session ETC held, which educated those passionate about following their dreams of being in the theater industry. Check out the short video showcasing our backdrop on our Facebook page.
Our Haunted House backdrop was an awesome theatrical background to feature at USITT. We had so much fun with featuring this backdrop. So many of the attendees could not believe that it was hand-painted. It is such an inviting, spooky, and colorful backdrop that instantly caught the eye of onlookers. We loved talking to so many lighting designers that provided such positive feedback on how their techniques could enhance our backdrop. It’s so fun to see how the different color lighting can completely transform the look of the backdrop. With one backdrop, you can create multiple different moods depending on the lighting and what is focused on.
We may have even gotten a little silly in front our our backdrop with OSF Costume Rentals. Check out how fabulous their seriously awesome costumes look in front of our hand-painted background.
It was an amazing experience to be surrounded by the best in the theater industry. We’re already looking forward to next year’s USITT show.

Last week we were in Las Vegas for the Catersource / Event Solutions Conference & Tradeshow! We had such an amazing time meeting so many new catering professionals, continuing our relationships with awesome exhibitors, and being involved in many of the exciting events.
We decided to create a different look this year with the set up of our backdrops. We’re always innovating, thinking of different ways to present our product to best fit your future events. We created two corners of our booth, both adorned with backdrops on each side. On one side we had a vibrant, energetic Moroccan Street Market, which you can see above. The goal of this set up was to educate the attendees on how backdrops can effortlessly bring the type of food you’re serving to life.
In the other corner, we showcased our Italian Street Scene backdrop that could easily enhance any Italian-inspired serving station. We love that caterers have serious input in the way their food is featured to ensure the best presentation possible. We all know that we first eat with our eyes and this is an easy way to leave a lasting impression.
On the outside of our booth, we featured our Coral Kingdom backdrop perfect for a fun play on serving seafood. We partnered with the lovely Air Dimensional Design (AirDD) to enhance our booth with their amazing inflatables by showcasing their large purple sprout and fun mini light centerpieces.
We were so excited to be a part of so many events during the Catersource Conference and Expo in Vegas. Our Havana Streets backdrops enhanced the CORT Welcome Reception at The Mirage Resort & Casino. The lounge was impeccably decorated. We were so happy to see how the amazing event designers utilized our backdrops. There were so many fabulous partners and sponsors that made this lounge a success. We couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of it.
The Monday Night Party, 5 @ TAO, was an incredible display of delicious and delectable food, awesome menu presentations, and an exciting atmosphere. We painted this Pop Art Duck backdrop specifically for the event as the geniuses from Catering by Design were looking for a fun backdrop to enhance their duck-centric menu. It was so much fun to be involved in this creation of this backdrop, from inception to the event.
We’re already looking forward to next year’s Catersource in New Orleans! Can’t wait to see what all of the talented #eventprofs come up with next year!
