And the table centerpieces were coordinating mini diaper cakes decked out in the same burberry inspired ribbon.. so clever!

The Look For Less: Lalaloopsy Party Button Backdrop

cute as a button lalaloopsy inspired backdrop with paper plates

Tonya Coleman here from Soireé Event Design, and I’m back with a {Lalaloopsy Dolls} Inspired Button Backdrop guest post where I share with you my tips on how you can have a fabulous, high-end looking event for less! Today’s post is all about how to create an amazing wow-factor using a high-impact, low-cost backdrop.

Backdrops, when used correctly should visually wow your guests as soon as they enter the room. They can be as pricey as fabric draping with uplights for hundreds of dollars to as simple as using paper plates for a few dollars! First of all, let me say that I would have never thought of putting a paper plate on a wall until I saw Piggy Bank Parties begin this trend. Now… I’m hooked!
