Are you currently decorating your party for the holidays, New Year’s, or any other special occasion? Are you having guests over to celebrate your son or daughter's graduation, or birthday or just to spend some quality time with family and friends? You want to make the event look as special and unique as possible, but how do you go about it? It's not always easy to decide on a theme ahead of time because it's hard to tell what will happen (special events can bring surprises) and it's difficult to plan.
If you are looking forward to having another party and are thinking about being your decorator, then it is always best to go for high-quality fabrics if you can afford them. Here is everything you need to know:
Choose the right tone for your party's backdrop
We do not have to tell you that decorating a party is a lot of work. However, it is not extremely hard to make your decorations look more professional and high-end. The first step towards achieving that goal is by choosing the right material for your backdrop.
You don’t have to be an interior designer to know that fabric plays an important role in setting the mood of your party. When you are planning to have a party, many things come into consideration such as food, drinks, and music. But one thing that people often forget about is the backdrop for their party.
When choosing fabric for your background, you should consider the theme of your event and whether it will match your guests or not! For example, if you want to throw a birthday party for someone who loves superheroes, then consider going with something inspired by superheroes like Batman or Superman!
Types of fabrics and their uses
If you want to show off your creativity at home parties, then why not try using some DIY ideas with fabric? Decorating with fabric can be fun and exciting if done properly! You can use colorful fabrics as well, for added appeal.
When you are choosing fabrics for decorations, it is best to consider what kind of party you are throwing. Will your guests be sitting in chairs for extended periods? Consider using a breathable fabric like cotton and linen. Will you have children at your party? Consider using a stain-resistant fabric like polyester.
When selecting a fabric for your backdrop, table-cover, or napkins, take into consideration the color of the room and how it will look against your backdrop. Most homes have neutral colors so finding fabrics that match them is easy. If you have a specific color scheme in mind, you can always find fabrics with the same color palette as your theme.
A popular trend is to use colored napkins with white plates and glasses on top of colored tablecloths. You can also add some fun colors to your decor by using colored napkins with white plates and glasses on top of colored tablecloths or even just using colored napkins alone!
For backdrops, we suggest using patterns such as damask or brocade to create a luxury look. Brocade fabric is a type of embroidery made with gold or silver threads on a rich fabric. It can be used for curtains and tablecloths, but it’s also great for backdrops.
If you want something more modern, try velvet or suede. Velvet is made from woven cotton or silk and has a plush texture. Suede is also made from woven cotton or silk, but with a nap (the soft pile) on one side of the fabric. These fabrics are great for any occasion, and they can create an elegant look by themselves or pair with other decorations.
Color coordination is equally important
For napkins, we suggest choosing vibrant colors like red and orange. These colors will make centerpieces and tables more vibrant. If you want something more subtle, then opt for neutral colors like black or white. You can also choose from our polyester-cotton blend fabrics or our polyester satin fabrics which are water-resistant, wrinkle-resistant, and easy to clean!
For table covers, we recommend choosing our polyester satin fabric because it is wrinkle-resistant and easy to clean after the party is over. The satin fabric also has an elegant shimmer that will add glamor to any celebration!
Use contrasting colors between the backdrop and tablecloths to create depth in the room. For example, use a red or orange backdrop with white tablecloths or vice versa.
Set up seating arrangements before guests arrive so that everyone has an unobstructed view of any entertainment at your event (like karaoke). This will allow guests to mingle and enjoy themselves without having to worry about where they sit!
Add some greenery or flowers around the room for added color and texture; these can be hung from the ceiling if there isn’t enough room on the floor.
For table covers, we suggest using more neutral colors such as beige and off-white so that the accent pieces on your table pop more. A dark-colored tablecloth can cover up the decorations on the table and make them appear smaller than they are. We recommend using a lighter-colored fabric so that it doesn't overpower other elements in the room. Table covers can also help create a cohesive look throughout the room by having matching napkins and other elements that tie everything together.
The key to choosing the right fabric is to find one that complements your other decorating elements. For example, if you are using a lot of neutral colors on your tables, we suggest using more neutral colors for your table covers as well.
