What You Need to Do

Step 1: Hang the Curtains

Setting up the gold Chiara stand for the backdrop for 4th of July celebrations.

Hang the dusty blue polyester backdrop curtains. Let the curtains flow to the ground, creating a soft and dreamy effect. Next, roll out the green artificial grass carpet rug in front of your backdrop. This will add a touch of nature and create a pleasant contrast with the blue curtains. Plus, it offers a comfortable and stylish area for guests to stand on while taking photos.

Step 2: Assemble the Backdrop Stand

Attaching the navy blue spandex cover to the backdrop for 4th of July celebration.

Set up the gold metal wedding arch chiara backdrop stand. Position it in the area where you want your backdrop to be. Ensure the base is stable and the arch is secure, as this will be the foundation of your backdrop. Next, take the matte navy blue spandex wedding arch covers and drape them over the arch. These covers will provide a sleek and elegant background color, perfect for the patriotic theme. Stretch the spandex tightly over the arch to avoid wrinkles and secure the covers in place.

Step 3: Add the Neon Light Sign

Hanging a 'Let's Party' LED sign on the navy blue backdrop for 4th of July festivities.

Finally, hang the "Let's Party" neon light sign in the center of the arch and secure it using clips. This eye-catching element will be the focal point of your backdrop, drawing attention and adding a fun, celebratory vibe. Ensure the sign is securely fastened and plug it in to light it up.

Step 4:  Create the Balloon Garland

Creating a balloon garland with beige, white, and red balloons for a stunning backdrop for 4th of July.

Assemble the balloon garland by tying the inflated balloons together using the provided garland strip. Start with the assorted white beige balloons as the base, then add in the shiny pearl red balloons for pops of color. Distribute the metallic gold and silver star balloons evenly throughout the garland to add sparkle and shine. Position the garland so that it cascades down one side of the arch, creating an asymmetrical yet balanced look. Adjust the balloons as needed to fill any gaps and ensure a full appearance.
