Decorate a Dance Venue with Cool Outdoor Effects

Dancing under the stars, cruising to an island paradise, walking in a winter wonderland — how we love to bring the outdoors to our indoor events! Here are a few ideas from Stumps Party for pulling it off.

Stars, Stars & More Stars

Whether a nautical, garden, city or destination theme, nothing is more romantic than a star-lit night. We love the look of combining a star gossamer with twinkle string lights, or try our glow star gossamer on its own! Add holographic shimmer die cut stars or mirror-brite die-cut shimmer stars to the décor to amplify the eye-pleasing effects.

Rock Out
This would be great for a Western or desert theme, and more. Try our seamless paper or other heavy background paper to create rocks and boulders of just about any size! The secret: a pillow of air! Cut two pieces of paper of the same irregular shape but with one sheet larger than the other. Match and staple the edges together so the larger sheet bulges out for some 3D action. The technique can take some practice, so if you haven’t done it before, be sure to experiment with scrap paper first. If you’re going to group them together, remember that odd numbers and staggered sizes look best.

Gaze into Distant Horizons
Use dark green corrugated paper and black corrugated paper to cut rolling hills, silhouettes of trees and/or rocks of different sizes. Place the shapes against a wall to create a landscape in the “distance.”

Take a Walk in the Clouds
Need some light, airy clouds in your outdoor setting? Get a bundle of our white tulle netting! Bunch it up into a cloud and secure your cloud formation with a quick baste stitch or staple. Use mono-filament (fishing) line to suspend your clouds from the ceiling, and/or place them on the floor to suit your event theme.
