There are many ways to style an event, but adding a backdrop has the advantage of immediately uplifting the event from beautiful to spectacular. What makes a backdrop such a glamorous addition to the décor and how can you add this effect to your clients? Here’s a brief overview of the beauty of a backdrop and information on how you can elevate your own events.
Multi-Purpose Use: Backdrops can be used in a variety of different ways. Let’s say that your venue has unfortunate wallpaper or a less-than-desired view. You can use a backdrop to cover up these potential issues that might bring an otherwise perfect location back on to your client’s list. They can also be used in more than one way: you might want to use a backdrop for a photobooth, to add glamour to the sweetheart table, or in a number of other creative ways! This is an opportunity to get creative and add some value for your clients.
A Touch of Drama: Backdrops can also have a sense of the unexpected as it goes beyond just table arrangements. Depending on the design, a backdrop can add glamour and uplift the décor of an entire room. Typically, most people will want to take lots of pictures near a great backdrop, so be sure it’s positioned in a way to provide maximum benefit and allow for easy access to photographs.
Not All Backdrops are Created Equal: While backdrops can indeed add a certain je n’ai c’est quoi to your event, it’s critical that you understand exactly how to construct a good one in order to achieve maximum wow factor. Backdrops can be constructed of a variety of materials, and there is no one-size-fits-all approach. The key is understanding what makes for a good backdrop, getting some hands-on experience in building them so you understand the time and effort it will take to provide one, and enhancing your skills as a designer so that you can deliver the ultimate experience for your clients.
If you’re interested in taking your business to the next level, consider adding backdrop creation to your list of services.
