You could get some plain black fabric and put it over a backdrop, then use white christmas/twinkly lights over that. To diffuse the lights, put another layer of fabric (chiffon or tulle in black color) over that. Voila! Sounds like it would go well with your parisian/elegant/simple theme.

@MissCountryGirl727:  Glad I could be of help!  It should be really easy to set up. You don’t even need it to be that wide. 5 ft. width is perfectly fine.

We rented pipe and drape (that doubled as our ceremony backdrop)

I am also doing a faux-to booth! For my backdrop, I’m going to make a ribbon backdrop. Get one piece of string and/or ribbon and tie different colors of ribbon to it. Then I’m going to hang that on the wall with the long ribbon strips hanging down. Does that make sense? You could do one with teal, black, and white ribbon! Simple and clean.

I use curtain panels. Get 72 long and get at least 3 panels if you go that route. One wedding I used a blanket and I sewed the top into a curtain loop, it happen to work for the color perfectly! I match my couples wedding colors.

I made mine as we wanted a bold pattern and color to match our wedding colors.  It was about $60 for fabric but I an going to use it to make a duvex cover for my spare room.

Here is what the color looked like.

You could do the same demask print or a coordinating black and white pattern.  Pretty much anything goes.  Good luck!  🙂

@MissCountryGirl727:  Whenever I read you post, this is immediately what I thought of.

Chevron is really popular right now, and in teal it would look good and fit your colors.

 

I have seen pins on pinterest where people have used wallpaper as a photobooth back drop, and just remember PVC piping is amazing.

Or if you have left over programs or invitations you can make a back drop with that
