Select a Theme

Once you decide on a theme or color scheme for your event, create a simple backdrop for your display. Fabric is the most popular choice, whether it's cut fabric, drapes, a shower curtain or tablecloth. If available, set up in front of a natural backdrop, like trees or flowers, or in front of an architectural element, like a beautiful brick wall. For this engagement dessert table, a floral fabric sets the scene for the yellow and gray color scheme.
