Magical Birthday Backdrops

Everywhere in the world, we enjoy organizing themed photoshoots to celebrate our milestones–whether it’s an anniversary, a gender reveal or baby shower, a family reunion and most especially, our child’s birthday. We may have constraints during this time of the pandemic, but it should not stop us from putting together something special to celebrate occasions and create beautiful memories.

This week, we decided to share our ideas for fun, themed Birthday Backdrops that little girls would surely love for their birthday celebration, virtual party, and photoshoot at home. We created two magical birthday backdrops for you – our signature magical and dreamy Unicorn and Fairytale Birthday Themes. These birthday backdrops are so versatile that they can be wonderfully integrated into the nursery or kids’ room after the celebration and photo shoot.

A Unicorn Birthday Backdrop

The color palette we selected for this set up are light pink hues and white as the base colors with a dash of lilac accents. For the background, we chose the Flower Box wall decals by Blond Noir which was perfect for the theme. Our key piece is The Dreamy Canopy in Light Pink which we dressed up with three cascading Marbled Pom Garland in Lilac which combine the classic unicorn colors and of course, our lovely Unicorn Bust Canopy Garland.

For the foreground, we brought out our Furniture set: The Butterfly Chair, The Clip Stool and Table. We also distributed Large Sparkle Poms in Light Pink and White around the space, which create the magical feeling of floating on clouds. Any girl would love to play around this set with Princess Sparkles.

A Fairytale Birthday Backdrop

For this set up, we started out with the same Flower Box wall decals from our first set up and decided to build a dreamy colorway with champagne combined with soft pink hues and white with lots of sparkle. Our central piece is the Dreamy Canopy in Champagne and we hung two Damselfly fairy dolls as garlands with a nylon string to make them look like they are floating. To create the absolute fairytale look, we created a couple of cascading Large Sparkle Poms around the canopy.

On the foreground, we placed an array of Swan Princesses with our Charmeuse Silk Star Pillows in Oyster, Pale Gold and Light Pink on top of a white faux fur rug to create the look of a magical swan lake. Your little fairy will look lovely in this backdrop standing under the canopy and sitting down in the company of swans.

A Magical Bedroom

The best part about these birthday backdrops is that you are still able to reuse them elements in your daughter’s room.

The Dreamy Canopy in Champagne along with Damselfly fairy doll garlands and Large Sparkle Poms from the Fairytale Birthday Backdrop will look beautiful over a white-framed bed. Complete the room with our Clip Table and Butterfly Chair which are perfect for different activities such as reading, playing, and doing art.

For extra comfort while sitting on the floor or in bed, you can finish off the space by adding our Star Pillows in soft and skin-caring Charmeuse Silk.

We hope you and your daughter enjoy these Magical Birthday Backdrop ideas and do them together one day!
