Now that Spring is officially here, we can turn our attention to the events and gatherings that bring us closer to our family and friends! One of the best party decorating ideas is to use Royal Design Studio stencils to customize nearly every aspect of your decor. Tables, flooring, backdrops and even gifts can be stenciled for that extra handmade touch for your guests. Let's take a look at some ideas from our friends and get ready to boogie on down to fantastic stenciled party decor ideas!
Creative customer Regina Garay knows her way around stencils and decorative finishes and when it came time to plan her sister's baby shower, she knew her fave stencils would come in handy. First, she used the Small Moorish Trellis Stencil to add pattern to the tablecloth for the gift table. "I took a plain Jane tablecloth and with the Bright Gold Stencil Creme and a stencil brush, I quickly stenciled the design. Took me no time at all - and what a difference it made!'. Next, she created cupcake holders with clear plastic plates and plastic martini cups. "By flipping the plate over on its back, we positioned various different stencils and spray painted the backs. The effect was a lovely frosted look on the front. It kept the plate a perfectly fine surface to put food on. We glued the martini cups to the bottom of the plates and voila! Instant patterned cupcake stands. All the guests flipped - we made a few Royal Design Studio fans that day!"
Know who else is a fan? Martha Stewart. She said "I do!" to our stencils when creating an aisle runner for a lovely outdoor wedding ceremony. The Large Florence Tile Wall Stencil from the Tile Stencils Collection was stenciled onto a creamy linen with ultramarine and cobalt blue acrylic paints. This beautiful stenciled fabric project was also featured in Martha Stewart Weddings.
Heidi of the events blog, Parties for Pennies, also stenciled a tablecloth for a baby shower she was organizing. She loved the contemporary stylings of the Hollywood Squares Stencil from the Allover Modern Stencils Collection and used a sweet lavender color on a $3.99 IKEA twin sheet. "I LOVE how it turned out. That’s exactly what I wanted for the baby shower," Heidi shares. Be sure to see her full Stenciled Tablecloth How-to on her blog!
Wedding bells were ringing for one of our own here at Royal Design Studio, and she chose the festive and modern Step Up Triangles Stencil for her wedding photo booth backdrop! Doesn't it look fun?? Our little wedding favor for YOU is the complete tutorial on creating this fab DIY Photo Booth Backdrop.
Melissa from the Polka Dot Chair suggested using stencils to create unique ways to gift wrap a present, like this gorgeous gold stenciled hatbox above. She used the Antique Gold Stencil Creme and the Small Polka Party Furniture Stencil to great effect! Vary the stencils and colors to create your own stenciled gift wrap, too!
