Take out the gold metal round backdrop stand from the box and start assembling the pieces together to form the round arch. Once the pieces have come together, put on the navy blue metallic shimmer spandex cover.

Step 2: Set Up the Acrylic Stands

Set up three clear acrylic cylinder display stands with varying heights and put on beige spandex covers on each of the stands. The difference in height will create dimension once displayed against the backdrop and the stark contrast of the beige will pop from the deep navy blue background. 

Step 3: Add the Letter and Number Stickers

Using the gold decorative rhinestone letter and number stickers, peel off the plastic from the stickers and stick them to the navy blue spandex cover. Make sure to spell out the ‘CLASS OF 2023’ correctly with proper alignment.

Step 4: Assemble the Balloons

To create an elegant backdrop display, create a balloon garland using navy blue, white, and gold pearl latex balloons. Tie up the balloons together and attach them to one side of the arch for a dramatic effect.

Step 5: Display Treats on the Acrylic Stand

For the finishing touches, use a white round ribbon trim-edged pedestal footed cupcake stand to display your cake and a white scallop edge cupcake holder stand for yummy treats you can serve to the guests. To highlight your academic success, place your diplomas on one of the stands and decorate it with black and silver satin ribbons.
