My venue has a large tin shop on the premesis and the only place that has enough space for the tables is outside. The head table will be next to a chain link fence (which i will be hanging glass bottles with flowers in them on) but also it has to be next to the giant off white tin shop. How do i draw attention away from this giant eyesore or somehow decorate it to fit my vintage fair theme? Any suggestions are SUPER appreciated!

cassandra_reyne: As the pp has said, a pic would be valuable. Keep in mind though, that sometimes the more you try to hide something, the more attention is drawn to it.

cassandra_reyne: Can you use it as a backdrop for a photobooth?
Typically the more you try to cover something up, the more peoples eyes are drawn towards it.

cassandra_reyne: I honestly don’t see anything wrong with that wall.
I think it would be a waste of time and money to try to cover it up. You can, of course, hang anything on it that you like, that is in line with your theme.
I’m not sure that I have a correct understanding of your theme. Is it a vintage fair- meaning a fair that occurred in times gone by
or a vintage fair where they sell vintage things?
If it is the former, you can do many different things , including painting some backdrops like the pic above and placing them along that wall so your guests can take pics.

Previous… And I love painting so the photo booth with painted props shown in the first picture would be really cool! Thanks!

Do you know about scene setters? they are long prints, either on plastic or paper that you can apply to walls to set the scene for various themed parties.
If it is a carnival theme, you could use a striped scene setter like this between the cutouts
It’s only 4 feet high but you can easily do it double height to get 8 feet of backdrop.

I think a nice backdrop and some fair lights they use to light up the midway would be cool…or just the lights, they won’t ruin tin.
