Backdrops at The Special Event!

January 20th, 2017

We had the pleasure of exhibiting at #TSE2017 last week! The Special Event show is always one of our favorites. What’s to love more than reconnecting with industry professionals and showcasing your product to new and beloved ones in the event industry? Being at the show re-energizes us and reminds us how lucky we are to be a part of a wonderful community of passionate people. We truly had an incredible time meeting new people, chatting about upcoming design trends in the event industry, and connecting with other exhibitors.

The Special Event 2017 - Skateboard Graffiti

We showcased our Skateboard Graffiti backdrop at our booth, which was such a fun and vibrant background to feature. We brought the theme to life with our wet paint cans, yellow ladder, wet paint sign, and paint brushes all around. So many people stopped by our booth and thought it was an actual wall with graffiti! Can you believe it is hand-painted? The technique, detail, and vibrancy make this backdrop a show stopper.

The Special Event 2017 - Skateboard Graffiti

Yes, we brought a skateboard as a prop! How could we not? & this wonderful attendee stopped by our booth & she was absolutely perfect for the backdrop! Skating around our booth was so much fun. The industrial feel of the street art created a unique atmosphere for all that came by our painted Graffiti Skateboard background. Check out the detail of the brick wall, painted skateboarder and artist, and the different colors featured in the backdrop below!

This backdrop was a part of our Custom Rental Service. A client asked us to design a background for a Bar Mitzvah boy that was passionate about graffiti and skateboarding. Our creative and talented designers and artists created this epic masterpiece. Learn more about our Custom Rental Service here.

Backdrops Beautiful Gives Back | A Time For Heroes 2016

November 9th, 2016

The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric Aids Foundation (EGPAF) has quickly become one of our favorite organizations with an incredible annual event that raises awareness for pediatric aids.  The EGPAF annual event, ‘A Time for Heroes’ Family Festival  was filled with fun, games, and celebrity heroes. Some good old fashioned face painted was also involved. This incredibly meaningful event was held at Smashbox Studios in Culver City, CA. We love giving back to a great cause. Check out some of the images from this wonderful event below.

ATFH 2016 - Lab Interior 2

With the event being so close to Halloween, it was so much fun to be a part of this Mad Science area of the event. Our Lab Interior backdrop was featured as the background to an exciting plethora of activities. The skeleton below was quite the complement to our hand-painted backdrop. This part of the event was completely transformed into an spooky interior of a laboratory. Kids and adults alike had so much fun at this remarkable event.

Check out these awesome professional images from the event below. Hint: you may recognize some of these celebrity heroes! We already cannot wait for the #ATFH2017 event to take place next year!

Backdrops as Photo Booth Décor

September 27th, 2016

Who doesn’t love to have fun? That’s why we’re always excited to be the background to exciting and entertaining event ideas. The San Diego Museum of Art hosts their popular sundown series Culture & Cocktails. This series invites their members and attendees to sip on exotic cocktails, dance to the DJ’s beats, and check out the amazing artwork. Last week, the event was all about their Venetian Views Exhibit. This incredible event took the attendees to the one of a kind city of Venice, showcasing the artists that have been inspired by the city.

Gondola Bridge Backdrop - Photo booth

Venice is the city that has been known as the city with many names. The City of Water, the City of Canals, the Floating City, the City of Bridges, the City of Masks. The list could go on. The breathtaking canals, the romantic bridges, and the water flowing through the city makes it feel majestic. This atmosphere was part of the Cocktails & Culture event last week. All of our Venetian inspired backdrops can transform your event into a magical Italian affair. We featured our Gondola Bridge backdrop, which highlighted a gondola, a bridge, and those majestic canals. A 10′ x 10′  backdrop is the ideal size for a photo booth featuring a handful of people. This awesome photo booth was courtesy of CEG Interactive. The result of their photo booth were some seriously amazing pictures and GIFs.

Gondola Bridge 2 Backdrop - Photo booth

As much as we  love our large backdrops because they’re perfect for plays, dance recitals, large auditoriums, and covering that pesky wall in that banquet hall. We also have an affinity for our smaller backdrops. Those that fit perfectly in a home, as a background to a dessert table, under a small tent, or even the scenery for a photo booth. We love how our backdrop enhanced these incredible images and really brought their theme to life.

Tips for Planning a Bar / Bat Mitzvah

September 23rd, 2016

Want to plan an incredible Bar or Bat Mitzvah? We’ve rounded up advice on how to make your event memorable, unique and fun for all of the kids. Over the weekend, we were inspired at our BESA Boogie event. So many amazing vendors and awesome companies came together to put on a fabulous mock Bar Mitzvah.

1. Select a Location / Venue

Think about the how many people you’re expecting, the style you’re going for, and the convenience of the location to the synagogue. These are all important factors to assess when choosing the perfect place to host your event.

Bar or Bat Mitzvah - Lights Camera Action Backdrop

2. Choose A Theme or Style of the Bar or Bat Mitzvah

This is one of the most important elements. When thinking about planning such a simcha, we believe it’s important to think about the theme or style of the event. Does the Bar or Bat Mitzvah have any special interests, hobbies, or movie/ TV show that they love? You want the theme and style to align with the specific interests of the Bar or Bat Mitzvah to showcase their love for whatever it may be. This Bar Mitzvah below showcased his love for skateboarding and his passion for the arts by using our Graffiti Skateboard backdrop. We have thousands of backdrops in so many different scenes and themes that are perfect to bring your theme to life!

3. Book your Vendors

Research is key to book your vendors. Find the right photographers and videographers to capture your special moment. Decide if you need a Florist or Event Planner depending on the size of your event. Decorate your venue with beautiful backdrops that will transform your space into an extravagant themed event! A live band or a DJ is perfect if you’re looking to entertain a dancing crowd. Looking to go above and beyond? Look into caricaturists,magicians, live artists, or a speciality food vendor! The options are truly endless.

3. Rent (or buy) your décor

Decide on the décor elements you want to use for your event. Will you use them again? If the answer is no, we definitely recommend to rent your decor items. Trying to convey a theme for your Bar or Bat Mitzvah? Renting a hand-painted backdrop is an effortless way to transform your space into whatever you desire.

Bat Mitzvah - Candyland Backdrop

5. Invite your Loved Ones!

Make sure that all of your loved ones are there. Your friends, family, congregational members, and colleagues. Send Save the Dates and Formal Invitations to ensure you’ll have an accurate headcount for your event. This is a wonderful, joyous occasion that should be celebrated by your community.

Before & After – Booth Transformation!

August 26th, 2016

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:

Transformation - Casino Booth BizBashLA

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:

Transformation - Casino Booth BizBashLA - After

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.

Transformation - Casino 3 Backdrop - After

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!

Under the Sea Gala @ NACE Experience

July 27th, 2016

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!

Coral Reef 2 - NACE Experience Gala 2016

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.

Coral Reef Backdrop - NACE Experience Gala 2016

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.

Coral Reef Backdrop - NACE Experience Gala 2016

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.
