Photo Backdrops and Theming

For an event that will have jaws dropping in amazement, you have to really go the extra mile. Recently we’ve found a surefire way to do just this, and that is with a stunning photo backdrop! There isn’t a better way to create enormous visual impact with just one item. We have a range of scenic backdrops in stock – from woodland, to alpine, to wild west – but we pride ourselves on bringing our clients’ unique visions to life, so get in touch to discuss your bespoke order! Here are a few creative ways to use photo backdrops…

Set Pieces

We have enough props and furniture in our stores to build a set piece for almost any theme you could dream up, but some of our most beloved sets include: the Alpine Chalet Set Piece (perfect for Christmas parties!); our brand new Woodland Set Piece (complete with rustic bench, life-sized artificial tree and real birch trees); the Wild West Set Piece (with barrels, saloon doors and wagon wheels) and a James Bond Set Piece (featuring games, gadgets, guns and much more!) Really,  just ask and we will have something to suit your needs.

Interactive Props

Combine backdrops with games and props to create a fun, interactive experience for your guests. We’ve recently built a range of bespoke steady-hand games for different themes, and a created a colourful 60’s theme VW Camper-van cutout. One of the classic and most popular themes around is 007, so we have a wonderful range of items to create an unforgettable Bond party! The DB5 photoflat goes beautifully in front of the Alpine backdrop, and we’ve got a very exciting new game that Bond aficionados will recognise from Goldfinger…

Lighting and Foliage

Lighting, fake foliage and subtle props can provide tons of atmosphere and turn your scenic backdrop into something really special! We have a range of artificial ivy, wisteria, Christmas trees and even a brand new full-sized artificial tree for a wonderful woodland theme. Our Tuscan backdrop looks wonderful with Mediterranean bay trees and herb pots… and just add pealights to give any foliage a little extra magic! A gobo will project any pattern or text you like onto the walls – we’ve had a dappled sunlight effect for a woodland theme, and snowflakes are fantastic for a winter-wonderland Christmas party!
