Fun Photo Backdrops

It has become a tradition at our school that we teachers host a Daddy/Daughter Dance.  Each year we have a different theme.  This year our theme was “Sweet Heart” dance.  I was talked into creating the backdrops for the dance pics.  I was excited because I have seen numerous ideas that I have been wanting to try out.

Here are the two backdrop ideas that I put into play!  They both turned out SUPER CUTE!

Backdrop #1

I used a variety of pink,white and zebra print streamers for this one!   Just hang the streamers in a row over a piece of picture hanging wire.

Backdrop #2

I used a roll of wrapping paper for the wall background.  The balls are the ever so popular tissue paper balls.  I hung the balls from the ceiling with fishing line.

(I had to play around with the lighting to get just the effect I was looking for.)

Add a simple black frame and we were in business!

These are 2 of my partners in crime! (There are 5 K-teachers in all..we LOVE playing dress up just as much as the kids!)


Here are a couple of other teachers that could not resist getting in on the action! 



(Thanks so much to all of my picture volunteers!)

I made sure that they realized that these would definitely be blog pics!

The pictures of the Daddies and Daughters turned out WAY too SWEET!  Plus, I believe that there was TONS of fun had by all!
