My Ghoul’s Night Out party table really stood out with an easy and inexpensive draped plastic backdrop. I pulled off the whole look (backdrop and table) with only two hot pink table covers, three black table covers, some pink tissue paper, and a Ghoul’s Night Out Halloween Party Theme Banner. If you’re designing a party table like mine, try drawing your guests’ attention with vertical streamers, a bright border, or other interesting banners, too. You can make a big impact by adding Halloween Ghouls Night Out Invitations and Party Favors as well.
Black and hot pink were the theme's colors, and they worked perfectly for a Ghoul's Night Out bachelorette party I threw for my friend Amber. Duct tape was my best friend as I hung and draped the light weight plastic table covers. First, I hung, taped, and cut the pink backdrop before moving onto the black draping.
To make the draping, I gathered a black table cover and tied it with black string right in the middle. One table cover was long enough to drape one side of the table, so you'll have to do this twice.
I then taped the gathered middle to the corner of the backdrop (love duct tape!), and spread out the part I was planning on draping.
After gathering the ends, I taped them to the middle of the backdrop and then repeated the process on the other side.
To hide the ends at the center of the backdrop, I just folded over some of the extra table cover and secured with duct tape.
I taped a half-fluffed tissue paper pom pom to each corner of the backdrop to hide the strings. There are a lot of easy pom pom video tutorials if you need to learn how to make them.
The tissue poms were simple to make and looked amazing! Plus, they were inexpensive - I just used supplies I already had lying around the house.
Don't forget to drape your table, too! I layered a pink and black table cover and just used duct tape to bring up the corners of the black plastic for a finished look.
I loved the dramatic effect of the backdrop and banner and so did the bride-to-be Amber! My Ghoul's Night Out table was a hit, and so were my other party favors, desserts, and decorations. Check them out:
