DIY Party Backdrop by My Insanity

In recent years the dessert/serving table has become the focal point of parties. It can be so much more visually stunning when placed in front of an eye-catching backdrop. Some of the backdrops used in the professionally designed tables look a bit intimidating to those of us throwing our own parties with a small budget. You might think that the only way to achieve that kind of look is to spend big money, but you would be wrong. Today, I'm sharing my simple secrets about how we created cool backdrops for parties like my son's Robot Design Academy Party and the Brooklyn Baby shower for very little money!  

I have to thank my husband (I call him BSB), for figuring out the construction side of it! We put together a basic backdrop frame that we have used for several parties. At the end of each party we take it apart, so it takes very little space to store.
If you'd like to make your own backdrop frame, you'll need some basic tools and four 1"x2"s--available at most any home improvement store. You can use the least expensive wood they sell. It won't be seen anyway. These are pine and cost about $1.50/each.
