Handcrafted Party Backdrops & Ideas Worth Celebrating

Everyone loves a good party, and this collection of backdrops and party ideas will make you want to throw your own celebration ASAP!

Holy Glam Garden + Butterfly Backdrops

100% handcrafted by Rachel. Excuse us while we pick our jaw up off the floor. Rachel Mulherin is an incredible jewelry designer (check out her work HERE!), and we now know, also an incredible designer of stunning party backdrops!


Rachel created her first photo backdrop wall for the RM Spring Soiree at Ampersea in Baltimore, pulling inspiration from her beautiful photoshoot at Jungle by the Falls by Hilton Carter. It then made another appearance at the RM Holiday Soiree at Four Seasons in November 2018 with some bonus florals! 


The RM Holiday Soiree at Four Seasons was calling for another backdrop, and with one of Rachel's bestselling necklaces featuring a butterfly, she stretched her creative wings and created this stunning, larger-than-life butterfly photo backdrop! Fittingly, the RM team was also spreading their wings last year as they moved to NYC from Baltimore, and we are so excited to see everything she does in the heart of this new city (although we totally miss her here)!

Pool Party Extravaganza at the AKP Retreat

Fantastically Fun Birthday Ideas!

Are these themes perfect for celebrating your child's birthday? YES! Would they also be incredibly fun for adults too? YUP! Just look at all of these colors! We are in love with how adorably joyful these two birthday celebrations are, both captured by Brandy Angel Photography! These sisters hit the jackpot with their mom, who knows how to celebrate a birthday and even started her own events company!

And okay obviously we had to sneak in one of this REAL LIVE UNICORN! ;)

Balloons are always a good idea!

Lola at Tangled Events, Styling & Design shared SO many gorgeous balloon-filled backdrops with us, we thought our hearts might POP! Seriously can't get over the way balloons and a little greenery can make a space feel so festive. Take our word for it, these balloon arches are no joke to install but wow are they pretty! So if you think adding this to your party sounds way overwhelming, make sure to reach out to balloon-extraordinaires such as Lola at Tangled!!

Living for this Swinging Backdrop at Living Lookbook NYC

NYC Wedding and event vendors teamed up to create a party dubbed the "Living Lookbook" and we're loving it! This incredible take on swinging place settings has us drooling! While this might not be your standard photobooth backdrop, we're pretty convinced that we'd all be up for a seflie in front of it!
