How to Decorate Your Backdrop for your Event

The backdrop you choose for your event can set the tone, create a focal point, and elevate the overall atmosphere. Whether you’re planning a wedding, a corporate event, a birthday party, or any type of celebration, the right backdrop can make a world of difference. We will give you some tips below on how to decorate your backdrop, and we’ll provide links to backdrops and neon signs to help you find the perfect decor for your event.

Choose the Right Backdrop:

  • Theme and Colour Scheme: The first step in decorating your backdrop is to choose a theme and colour scheme that aligns with your event. For example, if you’re hosting a wedding, a simple hoop backdrop with florals and chiffon might be ideal. If it’s a corporate event, consider a mesh backdrop to decorate with your company’s logo and brand colours.

  • Size Matters: Measure the space where you plan to set up the backdrop. Ensure the backdrop’s dimensions are appropriate for the venue and won’t overwhelm or underwhelm the area.

Incorporate Neon Signs:

  • Neon Signs: Neon signs can add a unique and personalised touch to your backdrop. They are available in various colours, fonts, and designs. A popular one amongst parties is our “Lets Party” neon sign and for weddings and engagements “All you need is Love
  • Colour Coordination: Ensure that the colour of your neon sign complements the backdrop and overall event colour scheme.
  • Placement: Our neon signs can be mounted directly on the backdrop with cable ties or fishing wire or can be displayed separately.

Add Decorative Elements:

  • Flower Arrangements: Fresh or artificial silk flowers can be used to decorate the backdrop. Flower arrangements are most popular for weddings, milestone birthdays, proposals and engagements.
  • Banners and Garlands: Consider hanging banners, garlands, or streamers that align with your event theme. These decorations can be used to frame the backdrop or add an extra touch.
  • Fairy Lights: Fairy lights can create a romantic and enchanting backdrop, especially for evening events. They work well with various backdrops and add a warm glow.
  • Balloons: Balloons can create a fun element to your backdrop, especially for kids parties or grand openings.

Personalise Your Backdrop:

  • Photos and Graphics: Incorporate photos onto your backdrop of the guest of honour, or the couple. Photo backdrops are especially popular for weddings, birthdays, and anniversary celebrations.
  • Custom Prints: You can have custom prints or decals made for your backdrop, featuring your event’s date, or milestone.

Test the Setup:

  • Before the event, set up your backdrop and neon signs to ensure everything looks as planned. Check the lighting, the placement of decorative elements, and any cords for neon signs.


Decorating your backdrop for your event with neon signs is a creative way to enhance the ambiance of your event. With the right planning and the right decorations, you can transform any space into a captivating and memorable backdrop for your special occasion.
