Basic Event Draping Set-Up #1: Simple Drape W/Garland
Pinterest First up, we got what I’d like to call a simple drape w/ garland. This one is easy, yet adds that touch of elegance. All you need is a sheer white fabric and some fake garland from your local craft store, and you’re all set. This look is great for a wedding reception or even a lingerie party. Oh, you didn’t know that people like cute backdrops for their sexy events? Tuh, you better get with it!
Basic Event Draping Set-Up #2: Gold Strike
Next up, we have something that I’m going to call the Gold Strike. As you can see, we got three colors, with a Las Vegas sequin gold and red in the front and white in the back. All you need to do is get your white set up, then come through with your individual pieces of gold and red to create 2 side swags. Then secure each one to your uprights and boom! You got a pretty backdrop for pretty much any occasion
Basic Event Draping Set-Up#3: Classic
The last design is something I’m going to call Classic. It’s a little more advanced than the previous look but you still got this! Yes, the sequin drape is a nice touch, but it’s not necessary. This design can still look great even without it. So, the only things you’ll need are plenty of fabric panels, and three different shades of fabric. Put it all together and you get this beauty. You can purchase this exact same backdrop-in-a-bundle on my website. I hope you enjoyed these 3 super simple basic event draping set-ups that you can use for your next big event.
