Stumps Party has all of the supplies that you need to set the stage for the rest of all your prom decorations. The following ideas can be used for your background or can serve as the genesis of your own personalized backdrop achieved through changing fabrics, colors and accessories.

REALISTIC BACKDROP
The first backdrop idea provides a visual representation of what could be seen far off into the horizon of your destination theme location. This backdrop makes everyone feel like they are on the pristine beaches of the mediterranean by focusing on whites, blues and beach images. Begin the backdrop with the Aegean Islands photo mural. As the mural shows the edge of a balcony then make the framing elements of this mural appear to be the elegant trimmings of a french door-like opening. Accomplish this by draping premium tulle-white between two or three white pedestal & columns that measure 8′ tall. Purchase a couple of white balustrades to angle off of the mural in order to give depth to the mural. For more drama, use the metal gossamer hanger with lights from which to hang additional white tulle. To pull out the beautiful blue of the mural, add bermuda blue gossamer to the white tulle on the hanger with lights. Enlarge the look of a balcony that leads into an ocean-view room, cover the floor with glossy white marble corrugated paper. Incorporate the lush green of the mural into the whole look of the backdrop by placing plastic potted english ivy near the base of the columns.

MOOD BACKDROP
This backdrop idea relies on beautiful fabrics that are layered, draped and accented with lights. Begin the backdrop by covering the wall with neutral gray seamless paper decorating material. Gossamer fabrics will serve to add the drama while the neutral gray paper wall covering provides a rich base to this very sheer fabric. Drape decorative panels from the ceiling using metallic purple gossamer. This gossamer is silver on the opposite side. Use both sides of the gossamer to create a gorgeous look. From the ceiling, hang 19″ wide panels of the gossamer with the purple side out. Next, center 9 1/2″ wide panels of gossamer with the silver side out over the 19″ wide panels. Secure the panels together by tying 9 1/2″ bands of the gossamer around the panels. Space the panels in such a way as to be able to hang one of the two decorative strands that come in the large silver dots curtain set. These bright silver dots accentuate the metallic glow of the gossamer and the silver accent of the gossamer. For an even more dramatic effect, hang one or more disc chandeliers nearby. Make all of the silver accents pop even more with the use of backlights. One more touch to subtly add more drama would be to overlay a very sheer layer of purple gossamer in front of the neutral gray seamless paper. This would give a purple hue to the foundation of the whole backdrop.
