Happy Monday everyone! I wanted to share an easy and versatile dessert table backdrop with you. This wooden backdrop was made in under 30 minutes with alternating six and twelve-inch board. I love the neutral backdrop this creates. It gives just enough interest without being over powering. I first used it at my Bourbon and Bluegrass Party and then painted it white for my Preppy Pony party. I’m thinking about distressing it and using it at a party I’m doing this summer.
Generally I like my backdrops to be 40″ above the table. You will need to figure out how high you want you backdrop to be.
- 1×6 boards
- 1×12 board
- 3 2×2 posts
- screws and a drill
- clear varnish or paint and a roller
Have the 1×6 inch and 1×12 inch boards cut the length of your table at the store you buy wood from. They will do this for free. I alternated 2 of the 1×12 with one of the 1×6 boards for added interest. Use a drill and screws to attach the board to two by two posts. Use a paint roller to apply clear varnish or any color paint.
Although the cost for this is a little more than some backdrops, I think you’ll use it over and over again. Can you think of any other party theme you may use it for?
Off to a great week.
