Sweet and Lovely Life

Ok, so this post was originally going to be something totally different, but this morning I came across some awesome ideas for easy DIY party photo backdrops, and wanted to share them with you.  One, in particular, looks super quick and easy and could certainly be put together before your New Year’s Eve party tonight.  (The second seems a little more involved, but still worth sharing for your next party.)

1. Tinsel Garland Backdrop: Check out this site for step-by-step directions.  But, essentially, all you need to do it stock up on some shiny garland at the post-Christmas clearances that are going on right now, attach the garland to a dowel, and hang.  Then strike a pose.  This would be a fun addition to any New Year’s party (or, file it away for your next birthday party, Christmas party, office holiday party, or random Tuesday that needs some excitement.)

2. Large Sequin Backdrop: This one takes a little more advance planning — these sequins might be tricky to track down — but, gosh, the end result is so totally awesome!  I just sort of want to cover one of the walls of my apartment in these large sequins.  Some instant glam “wallpaper.”  I’m inspired to throw a New Year’s party next year just so I can make this photo backdrop wall. (It would help me get some pretty, sparkly photos to add to my 2012 photo book resolution.)
