Backdrops at BizBashLA!

Posted by Elyse

Did you get a chance to see us at BizBash Los Angeles? We had such a wonderful time exhibiting among all of the other innovative vendors. We enjoy any opportunity to see our partners within the industry and meet new and upcoming event professionals. Connecting with so many professionals within the industry reminded us why we love being at tradeshows, especially in Los Angeles.

Backdrops at BizBashLA

We highlighted our 10′ x 10′ Haunted House backdrop as one of our favorite holidays is Halloween (& we remember that even during the summer!). We absolutely love this spooky hand-painted backdrop and the front lighting transformed the backdrop in it’s own distinct way. Remember, front lighting is the way to go in regards to uplighting backdrops! We still celebrated summer by enjoying the beautiful weather in Los Angeles AND extending our Sizzling Summer Sale to all the attendees! We have a wide selection of 10′ x 10′ backdrops that are perfect birthday parties, smaller events, Quinceañerasbar and bat mitzvahs, Sweet 16 parties, or even photoshoots!

It is amazing to exhibit at all of the BizBash expos from Florida to Los Angeles to New York. Each event is extremely unique and each of the attendees brings a new element to the conversation regarding event design and decor. It was lovely connecting with so many event professionals and discussing new ways to bring backdrops to life at any event, wedding, or special affair.

As we put our Florida and California 2015 BizBash experiences behind us, we are looking forward to what’s next. We cannot wait for the last BizBash expo of 2015 in New York and are thrilled that our East Coast Manager will be there to represent us! Read more about our East Coast expansion in our latest newsletter. We are extremely excited to be able to service your needs from both coasts!

We had the honor of being involved in the Love Benefit on June 2nd at the Morgan Run Resort and Club in Rancho Santa Fe, CA. It’s always a pleasure for us to give back to the community, especially when it affects someone so near and dear to the Backdrops Beautiful family. We were among 150 companies that came together to show our love and support for Aaron Feldman, CEO and Founder of True Photography. Aaron is a true visionary and has made a strong impact on our industry and our community, which was evident by the attendance and support at this amazing event.

We had such an incredible night being apart of this event, full of libations, delectable cuisine, a silent auction, opportunity drawings, games and live entertainment. It was so special for us to witness our Beatles 7 backdrop as a main element to the night’s festivities and it was so wonderful to see so many people that care so much about Aaron.

Everything really came full circle for us as our Director of Sales and Marketing, Jonathan Goldstone, used True Photography to document one of the most important days in his life – his wedding. We jumped at the chance to be apart of this event as we viewed it as an opportunity to truly thank and give back to Aaron and his company for all that they did in capturing Jonathan’s wedding. It is incredible how connected all of us are and using our community as a place to give back is essential in facilitating a loving and supportive network.

All proceeds from the event went towards Aaron Feldman’s recovery and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Follow his journey at http://howibeatmycancer.com/. Thank you Aaron for letting us be apart of this meaningful event and thank you to True Photography for these gorgeous photos.

New Hand Painted Backdrops – June 2015

Posted by Elyse

We love having the opportunity to create, design, and paint new backdrops on an ongoing basis – it’s what keeps our creative vibes flowin’ and inspires our team to continue to develop backdrops that push the limits of design. We are often inspired by requests from our clients that are looking to see their ideal vision that will perfectly complement and enhance their event. By working with our clients, our team creates picturesque backdrops that are unique and have the capability to completely transform an event.

Weather1 - 40x20

Our Weather 1 backdrop is one of my personal favorites. A reason I moved to the East Coast from California (where every season is summer) was to truly experience all four seasons. This portrays each season cohesively within one backdrop, highlighting the stark contrast of the seasons while seamlessly transitioning from one season to the next. This backdrop really highlights how beautiful nature is and how transformative it can be!

Bubbles5 Aqua - 20x10

Our Bubbles 5 Aqua backdrop is the ideal backdrop for a corporate event, birthday party, theatrical production, or special event. Our artists have used the ombré technique, using the aqua blue paint to transition to the green hue at the bottom of the backdrop. This backdrop will add a unique, subtle background to any event.

Coral Kingdom4 - 40x20

Looking for an under the sea experience without getting in the ocean? Our Coral Kingdom 4 backdrop brings the sea life to you! The intricate design of the coral kingdom takes you to a fantasy down under, full of a sea of purples, pinks, and blues.

Mansion View15 - 50x30

Our Mansion View 15 backdrop features an inside look at the interior of a stunning mansion, complete with a fireplace and two drape adorned windows. The detailed design of the mansion interior combined with the warmth of the fireplace makes our imagination wander into this beautiful living room.

We are so excited to see how these backdrops will look at your upcoming events! After all the work that our team puts in to creating each backdrop from inception to painting, the process is only complete with your vision on how the backdrop is incorporated into your event/recital.

Every year, we look forward to exhibiting at BizBash South Florida and this year topped all of our expectations! We were so excited to travel to paradise (aka Ft. Lauderdale) to share new ideas with fellow vendors and attendees, inspire and become inspired from all of the other wonderful and innovative event industry leaders, and to connect with so many new and familiar faces. It was so incredible to be a part of the latest and greatest that the event and meeting industry has to offer. One of our favorite things to do is showcase our product and help you figure out different ways to use our backdrops! As always, we love receiving pictures from your events that help showcase the power of using a backdrop to transform your meeting or event! We would love to feature you on our website!

Since Paris, France is always on the top of our destination list, we highlighted our intricate Paris Eiffel Tower backdrop and enhanced the backdrop with our mime costumes à la Marcel Marceau. Our goal was to take you on a trip to France through our costumes and our backdrop, which we were delighted to hear such great feedback regarding our dedication to our theme. Our Paris backdrops come in all different sizes (from 10′ x 10′ to 50′ x 20′) and a variety of scenes.

We had so much fun bringing Paris to Florida and practicing the ‘art of silence’ while our mimes showcased our backdrop. The Eiffel Tower illuminated the night sky and we felt as if we were across the pond enjoying a gorgeous evening in France. Our enthusiasm continues as this is only the first BizBash expo of the year! We are excited for the remaining BizBash expos in 2015 and we are looking forward to seeing you there!

Backdrops at Canadian Special Events!

Posted by Elyse

Last month, we travelled to Toronto, Canada to showcase our backdrops at The Canadian Special Events Show with over 400 other vendors in the event industry. We were overjoyed to collaborate with other vendors, see new and familiar faces, share best practices, and learn from our valued partners and customers.

While Canada is thrilled that the winter weather has finally come to an end, we highlighted our gorgeous Ice Castle Interior 10 backdrop to serve as a reminder that our backdrops can transform your event (and even change your mind about long-lasting winters).

Ice Castle

Our Ice Castle backdrops, available in many sizes, add the fantasy element to an event while accentuating the intricate hand-painted detail by our talented artists. These backdrops can enhance your event, whether your occasion is for a special event, theatrical production, dance recital, or ice king or queen birthday party! Check out our Ice Castle Interior 10 backdrop in action, which is a 10′ by 10′ backdrop ready to be a show stopper!

BB-under

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.

Interior Palace Gold

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.

Interior Palace Gold Wedding

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.

Backdrops at ISES Ultimate Wedding Event

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!

Backdrops at TSE 2015

Posted by Jonathan

Grand Mansion 1

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!

TSE Live Stage 2015

 

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!

 

P.S. Events Are Not Only For Adults

Frozen Backdrop in BizBash NY

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!
