floral backdrop

Transform your romantic wedding into a truly magical event! These cascading floral garlands are ideal for framing the most cherished moments of your ceremony. Read on and we’ll walk you through how to build this incredibly gorgeous flowery backdrop!
Step 1
Start by placing Command™ hooks on your venue’s wall or door, right where you’d like to hang your fabric. Then, hang your sheer fabric from the hooks so that it drapes down on either side of the ceremony space. 
Step 2
On one side, gather the fabric in your hand about halfway down and wrap it with wire. Add a Command™ hook to the wall on that side and place the wrapped wire onto this hook. Repeat for the fabric on the other side.

TIP: After you’ve hung your wire from the hook that’s halfway down, carefully pull up and blouse the fabric right above the wrapped wire. This will make it a drape nicely and help to conceal the wire. 
Step 3
Next, use more Command™ hooks to drape a greenery garland from the top of the fabric to the halfway point at one side. Attach a second garland so that it drapes from the halfway point to the floor. Repeat this step to add two greenery garlands to the other side. 
Step 4
To create the floral arrangements at the top and sides of the backdrop, cut and wire floral and greenery stems together.

TIP: As you add your flowers to the arrangement, mix larger blooms with smaller ones and alternate cream-colored flowers with others in a variety of pink shades. Take a little time to bend the flowers’ stems so that they fall and droop naturally.
Step 5
Fasten each arrangement to the wall by securing its wire to Command™ hooks. Weave in more greenery stems throughout the backdrop and let them hang loosely to cover up the hooks.

TIP: Always make sure you place Command™ hooks on a solid surface, like a wall or door. That way, you’ll be able to wire the floral securely to the hooks. Never attach your floral pieces to the fabric alone, because the weight of the arrangement is too much for it to bear.
