Be my Valentine or my Galentine?

February 10th, 2016

Valentine Hearts Backdrop

Love is in the Air, Valentine

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner! We’re excited to celebrate with our loved ones. Valentine’s Day is also known as Saint Valentine’s Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine. Although the holiday didn’t start out about love, in 18th-century England it evolved into a day when people expressed their love to one another through presenting flowers, offering sweets, and sending each other hand written greeting cards (now known as ‘valentines’). We love trading and surprising others with Valentine’s! It’s definitely not only reserved for when we’re younger. We think the more clever, the better. So go grab your supplies and create your own unique valentine for those special someones in your life. It’s time to get creative and show your loved ones what they mean to you! & there’s no better way to do this than a homemade valentine.

Valentine Hearts 3 Love Story backdrop

No Valentine? What about a Galentine?

We affectionately love Galentine’s Day as we know our female best friends are the bees knees & perhaps our absolute favorite type of love story. This term was first coined by Parks & Recreation’s Leslie Knope, who officially made February 13th Galentine’s Day. A pre-Valentines day brunch consisting of ‘ladies celebrating ladies’. Having a gal pal to confide in, a best friend to shop with, and a partner in crime helps make our worlds go round. No matter where you live, it’s easy to find the perfect place for brunch with your girls or you can always have your girls over at your place. & remember: #NoBoysAllowed.

However you are celebrating, we hope you have a weekend full of laughter, spontaneity, love, and definitely brunch. Even though it’s only Wednesday, we’re already counting down to this weekend. There’s no shame in having something to look forward to, right?

Comment below and let us know how you plan to enjoy your weekend!

Mardi Gras – A Time to Celebrate!

February 9th, 2016

Mardi Gras 1 backdrop

Did you know that Mardi Gras is French for Fat Tuesday? The name is to reflect the indulgence that takes place by eating richer foods before Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, the following day. The origins of Mardi Gras can be traced all the way back to Greece and Rome, when early Christians with Pagan roots celebrated and feasted on the days before the somber days of Lent. Mardi Gras is an annual Carnival celebration that is celebrated around the world. The most popular and festive place in the United States to celebrate this occasion is in New Orleans, Louisiana. The first occurrence of the Mardi Gras celebration in Louisiana dates back to March 2nd, 1699.

Celebratory parades and festivities are ongoing for two weeks until and through Fat Tuesday. The parades in New Orleans are organized by Carnival Krewes, which are organizations that put on parades and/or balls during Carnival season. Krewe float riders often throw items to people passing by, most famously colored plastic beads, aluminum or wooden coins called doubloons, decorate plastic cups, and other small plastic toys. The tradition of Krewe riders throwing colorful beads began in the late 19th century. The same parade schedule and route is followed each year by major krewes. It is very common for the krewe members to wear vibrant masks, colorful costumes, and vivid beads.

Mardi Gras 1 Backdrop

The traditional colors of Mardi Gras are purple, green, and gold. All three colors were used by the Catholic Church throughout history. As Mardi Gras is Catholic in origin, these colors have continued to be used during the carnival celebrations and festivities. These colors really do define Mardi Gras and elevate it as its own unique festivals and celebration.

We can all channel our inner #FatTuesday self today & celebrate Mardi Gras as it comes to an end tonight! Be safe and enjoy all of the festivities, wherever you are!

Our BOO-tiful Halloween Backdrops!

September 30th, 2015

We cannot believe that it’s almost October! Of course, that means Fall, cooler weather, and Halloween just around the corner! No matter how you celebrate Halloween, there’s always a hand-painted backdrop that can completely transform your experience.

halloween - haunted house1 - 10x10 i

Are you having a party to celebrate the festivities and you want just the right background for your pictures of the event? If so, you’re in luck! We have many 10 ft x 10 ft backdrops that can cater to your spooky Halloween night. My favorites include the steamy Cauldron in the moonlight, our mysterious Haunted House, our eerie graveyard that will send chills down your spine, and our Wicked Moon backdrop complete with a witch riding her broomstick.

halloween haunted courtyard 1 backdrop

Maybe you want to wrap the room in Halloween backdrops to create an immersive experience for your friends, guests, or customers. In this case, a larger backdrop would satisfy your needs and provide the haunted experience of a lifetime. Our spooky haunted courtyard backdrop can provide the feeling of being lost in an eerie cemetery only to find barren trees, a full moon, and vivid lightning striking down.  I don’t know about you, but I would be pretty afraid to walk through that gate above. This inescapable feeling is immediately brought to your event.

Medieval Castle Interior 4 - Halloween - 40x20 i

Looking to create an upscale experience through a highly sought after event, Halloween gala, or haunted midnight affair? Our Medieval Castle Interior backdrop provides the mysterious and ghostly experience, while inviting you in to walk on the red carpet. The night sky beaming in through the windows atop of the mansion complements the dimly lit interior. The stone interior provides a cold contrast to the warm yellow lights and carpeting throughout the middle of the backdrop. This is a perfect backdrop to transform the interior of any space and provides an amazing depth perception to the eye!

oktoberfest5 - 40x20 i

Prefer Oktoberfest as your event of choice instead of Halloween? We can’t blame you, especially when this festival is focused around beer, quality time with friends, and good food! Looking forward to all of the October festivities!

The fireplace is generously decorated with a greenery and topped with a festive wreath above. This is perfect for any Nutcracker ballets, Holiday events, or Christmas themed performances!

graffiti7 - 20x10 iThis Graffiti backdrop was inspired by our love for street art and the dynamic sport of skateboarding. This backdrop offers so many vibrant colors and an array of different images that creates a seamless and unique design. This was a custom rental that we designed together with a customer for a Bar Mitzvah to celebrate his love for skateboarding and passion for street art. What person that loves skateboarding wouldn’t want this at their event or party? This backdrop creates a fun and playful atmosphere and looks wonderful as a background in pictures, video, and in person!

We can’t wait to see what new backdrops are painted next month! As always, feel free to let us know if you have any ideas of backdrops to add to our ever-growing inventory!

USA FLAG 6 FIREWORKS BACKDROP

We would like to wish all of our friends, partners, and customers a very happy, safe, and enjoyable 4th of July! We love celebrating our Independence Day (especially when it makes for a three day weekend!). It is always filled with special time with our family, barbecuing with our friends, and enjoying the fireworks light up the night sky! We enjoy being a part of and seeing so many pictures of all of the July 4th parades that happen from coast to coast. Each city has it’s own unique take on celebrating the 4th of July! It is amazing seeing all of the red, white, and blue flags waving in the air demonstrating pride for this beautiful country.

July 4th - Fireworks Night 5

FIREWORKS NIGHT 5 BACKDROP

What is your favorite part of celebrating 4th of July? After spending the entire day celebrating with friends and family, our favorite highlight of the night is getting to experience the beautiful array of firework colors (not only red, white, & blue!). It isn’t an Independence Day celebration without fireworks lighting up the sky and I’m always making sure to get the best seat to do so. This year, I’ll be watching the fireworks over the East River in New York City. Most people escape NYC to celebrate the 4th, so I’m excited to see what it has to offer while most people are away!
