Grosh Theatrical Curtains and Back Drop Rentals
*Check ALL the themes- from Mardi Gras to Vegas to European Villages, they've got it!* Grosh is one of the theatrical backdrop supply companies that I run to whenever I have an event. But don't just think "large scale production." Oh no. Your holiday party, office soiree or even Christmas Day celebration is an event in and of itself. So check out a site like this for the quickest, most DRAMATIC way to transform a room into an experience. Whether you are looking for a Dickens' Village atmosphere, a winter snowscape or a grand French parlor, a backdrop in an appropriate size can be rented for a few days, a week or more. But what I run to FIRST on sites like this is the Clearance/Sale section- that's where used stage backdrops (and gorgeous draperies and panels) are actually SOLD at very reasonable prices. So consider investing in some amazing holiday decor this year..... ps You don't need all of the fancy hanging stuff. These bad boys will stay up with just a staple gun under the molding or in the crease of your ceiling....
Why am I telling you about big, white balls? Well, check out how much a store charges for their version of giant outdoor Christmas ornaments and consider doing it yourself instead. http://www.thisnext.com/item/E0930C39/54A8A52...

The bigger ones come in halves you just glue together. Spray paint them in different colors (put a coat of something on underneath or a lot of the paint will be absorbed by the foam) and then use stencils (ie snowflakes) or a loose measuring tape (for stripes) to sketch your pattern. Then spray within the desired design with a strong 3M-like spray epoxy and sprinkle glitter (order online by bulk- very cheap... and "holographic" glitter is the best at catching the twinkling lights) thickly. Shake off the excess and ta da! Congrats! You have fancy balls! p.s. Don't forget to spray them with sealant if they're going outside when finished. You don't want soggy balls.
Whether decorating your own home for the holidays or an office or social event, it's better to invest in items that can be reused year after year instead of buying throw-away things at your local party store.
