A Creative Backdrop Idea

Sometimes it only takes one simple but creative idea to turn the ordinary into extraordinary. Such is the case with this backdrop to a homemade dessert table, that’s designed with hanging tea cups. The concept is simple: hang pieces of plywood from a frame system or against a wall, attach nails or hooks, and place an array of tea cups row by row.

  • The cups can be utilitarian for a tea party, or purely decorative.
  • Search thrift stores for a variety of patterns to use.
  • Use this idea for a bridal shower and give each guest a tea cup as a favor.
  • Incorporate this idea into escort cards by tying hang tags to each handle {with guests’ names on them}.
