How To Create an Outdoor Event Space Backdrop

Dressing up indoor venues is fun, but outdoor event spaces can be particularly elegant. When you’re working with the elements, there’s immense creativity you can bring to the décor, such as backdrops. Whether your fabric display is sprucing up a business event, church gathering, or wedding, use the elements to your advantage. The helpful tips below will show you how to create an outdoor event space backdrop.

Incorporate Natural Décor

Using event backdrops outdoors gives you the chance to accent the fabric with natural décor. A floral arrangement cascading across the top of the backdrop panel is a warm, stylish touch. On the other hand, you can take a similar approach using bright, green leaves instead. The smoothness and toughness of wood make it a perfect contrast to the soft fabric display. You can integrate wood by setting the backdrop up near a tree or other event décor made from wood. Natural materials such as wood and plant life bring tranquility to any area you set them up. By layering a backdrop with some delightful natural décor, you can bring an amazing visual depth to outdoor event spaces.

Remember the Theme

Creating a stunning backdrop that stands out is great. However, if you don’t weave the backdrop into the overall event theme and color palette, it’ll look obtrusive instead of attractive. Luckily, there’s a bevy of backdrop panels to choose from. For example, our Poly Premier drapes come in 12 different colors, such as purple, red, blue, white, black, and burgundy. Whatever your event theme is, there’s a lavish backdrop panel out there that will make the perfect match. Event backdrops should be a brilliant showcase of your theme; color plays a big role in achieving the right balance.

As you can see, learning how to create an outdoor event space backdrop is relatively straightforward. The tips above are essential for weaving backdrops into your event space naturally and elegantly. With these tips under your belt, you can begin collecting materials such as a backdrop rod and event fabric for your next gathering.
