If the space or venue you're using won't allow any kind of hanging or taping, what's the best way to solve this matter? Today, I want to show you the easy & simple way to make a backdrop. You can easily create this look without having to do too much work. Plus, you can also reuse this backdrop and just change the color of the fabric for any events/parties you may have in the future. :)
Before I share some tips with you, I wanted to show you a before & after picture of our veggie/fruit bar. Having a backdrop makes quite a difference, don't you think?
AFTER Including a backdrop definitely pulls the look all together and makes such a difference in photos!!
Just wanted to share a few pictures I took w/ my iPhone while getting ready for the shoot
Here's how it looked before we began our table..
laid out some few props to evenly position the dessert stands...
finishing up on all the tags..
I also purchased a green damask pattern fabric to give a bit of contrast to our table
Here's what you'll need
Any type of iron, Fabric ($20), Spray glue ($7.99), foam board ($20)= Total: less than $50 bucks
This simple project can be done in less than 20 min!
1) Buy a foam board that's big enough to cover a 6ft table. The biggest one I found was a 5 ft wide at Michael's so as you can see, I had to connect one more ft with a duck tape (tip: you can always make the backdrop bigger than the table)
2) Purchase a fabric of your choice (best to buy a thicker fabric to reduce any ) and iron the fabric before you spray glue it to the foam board.
3) Carefully spray glue the fabric and press it real hard as you go down so you don't get
4) After you're done gluing the entire fabric, you want to iron it out AGAIN to make the backdrop smoother. Any kind of may show up on the pictures so make sure you don't have
