If you plan on hosting a huge party, chances are that there will be tons of pictures taken. Therefore, to make sure you give your guests the perfect selfie; it’s essential to make a good backdrop. 

A perfect picture will mean nothing if the background is shabby. And similarly; even a poorly taken picture can be made to look aesthetic if the background is really neat and fashionable. Inspiration can be derived from pretty much anywhere to get that perfect Instagram-able background.

There can be an extensive number of backdrops to choose from for different events. They can be personalized as per the festival. For instance, Halloween events may have spooky backgrounds using pumpkin props or design, and Christmas may have a huge Christmas tree in the background along with a reindeer. While these are examples that may not work for all occasions; there are also a few designs that work perfectly regardless of the occasion. 

Here are 20 backdrops that will liven up your party and make it a hotspot for guest’s photographs. These work well on most events.
