Dessert Table backdrops – Q & A

Today Ania from 2 Love Birds is guest posting and shedding light on printable backdrops for dessert tables – sharing the great effect they can have and answering some common questions about them:


With the increasing popularity of DIY parties as well as professionally styled celebrations, party backdrops have been one of our most in demand printable products. They can be a great focal point, they can give a dessert or savory table a background, convey a happy message or sometimes even cover a boring or an unsightly wall!

I would like to share a few of my favourite and most successful backdrops and parties.

“Come and make a Splash” – styled by The Sweet Society
Modern and clean but super fun at the same time! Instead of the more traditional “Happy Birthday” message there is call for action, which makes this artwork a little a bit more interactive and entertaining. Great idea for boys parties.





“Sew cute as a Button” – styled by Sweet Coco
This backdrop is cute, sweet and playful. Perfect for a little girls party.





Tropicana Dinner Party – styled by Kendra Plastow Styling
Floral backdrop which matches our Tropicana wedding stationery suite can be easily mistaken for wallpaper. Clever idea from the stylist!




Floral Minnie Mouse party – styled by Miss Deliciouza
Mint and Gold frame backdrop was designed for this Floral Minnie Mouse party. I love the idea of a 3D backdrop. It can be achieved by creating a plainer background and either sticking or hanging real objects in front of the artwork. Perfectly executed here by Miss Deliciouza!




Japanese Tea Party – styled by Sweet Bambini Event Styling
Once again, bringing the artwork to life by introducing real elements! In this case it’s the cherry blossom lights and parasols.




Hawaiian Party – styled by Styled by Belle
Who doesn’t love a Hawaiian party? This backdrop is busy and colourful with an equally opulent dessert table to match!

What are the most common sizes for a party backdrop?
-BO size backdrop (1000 mm height and 1414 mm width)
-Full length backdrop (1000mm by 1800mm)

Where can I print my backdrop?
– Officeworks prints a BO size backdrop as well as any length by 1m high
so they can print 1000mm by 1800mm (full width of a trestle table). It’s not on their standard service list, but it can be done upon request. Both of these sizes can be printed on 160gsm paper.
– If you would prefer to print the backdrop on canvas which is more durable, you can send the artwork to Buggyboo (link
– Your local printer may have the ability to print large format artwork as well!

How can I hang my backdrop?
If the backdrop is printed on paper and is being stuck to a clean wall, Blu Tac is usually sufficient. If your backdrop is printed on a heavier stock 3M strips may be better.

Can I re-use it?
Of course! It’s a shame sometimes for the backdrop to be thrown out after the party. If the backdrop says your child’s name you can hang it in their bedroom as a personalised poster. You can also re-print the file if you like.
