Choosing Greenery for Your Backdrop

Choose from several greenery styles. Each adds a unique feel to your party, so mix and combine them to get the luscious look you want.

Fresh Greenery

This provides a vivid and natural aesthetic. Create a naturally charming and fragrant backdrop with lush ferns, eucalyptus leaves, and live foliage. Fresh greenery is perfect for outdoor weddings, garden parties, and rustic-themed celebrations.

Artificial Greenery

Faux greenery offers the same exquisite look while being durable and flexible. These come in a variety of styles, colors, and textures. They are long-lasting and low maintenance, making them ideal for setting up a lush, vibrant backdrop with ease.

Dried Greenery

Dried leaves, branches, and flowers lend an earthy, unique appeal to your events. Dried greeneries make great backdrops for rustic or bohemian-themed occasions. Use dried eucalyptus, twigs, and grasses to add a relaxed, intimate feel to the space.

Preparation Before Attaching Greenery Wall

Before arranging the greenery for your backdrop, make sure the foliage is properly prepared so it looks its best and lasts throughout your event. Follow these steps:

  1. Inspect the greenery for dirt, debris, or damaged leaves especially if you're using fresh ones. Remove damaged parts and make sure everything looks clean and polished. 
  2. If you're using fresh greenery, water the stems to keep them looking vibrant. Mist the foliage with water to prevent it from wilting. For a faux greenery wall, spray it with water and wipe it down to ensure it is clean.
  3. Use scissors to trim fresh greenery to the desired lengths. To enhance the beauty of artificial greenery, fluff and shape the foliage. Arrange it to create fullness and volume while maintaining a realistic look.
  4. Gather all the tools you'll need to attach the greenery. This could include floral wire, zip ties, and adhesive hooks. Have everything on hand to help streamline setting things up.

Attachment Methods and Techniques

Greeneries can be securely attached to the backdrop frames using a variety of methods. Here are the common options you can use to achieve stunning results:


Use floral or paddle wires to attach individual stems or wall panels of greenery to the backdrop structure. Wrap them around the stem or panel and frame, twisting them tightly to keep the foliage in place. This allows you to place the greenery exactly where you want it.


Apply a little amount of floral adhesive or glue to the back of the greenery or straight to the backdrop. Allow the adhesive to dry completely to ensure a firm binding. Use a grade adhesive that is appropriate for the materials you are working on.

Zip Ties or Twist Ties

This method is ideal for attaching larger or heavier items, such as greenery bundles or garlands, to your backdrop. Wrap the tie around the greenery and the frame, then pull it tight to keep the decor in place.

Command Hooks

These are perfect for temporary or detachable greenery. They allow simple installation and removal without damaging the backdrop. Place the hooks onto the backdrop frame then hang the garlands, swags, or panels from them.

Adding Accents and Final Touches

Enhance the beauty of your backdrop by adding floral accents and decorations. Here are some recommendations to jazz up your backdrop:

  • Tuck in fresh flowers to add brilliant colors to your greenery arrangement. Choose blooms that will match any event theme and color scheme such as roses, hydrangeas, or peonies. You may also use silk flowers to add dimensions to your backdrop with their lifelike looks.
  • Add a whimsical touch to your foliage by weaving satin ribbons or string lights through it. These embellishments give texture to your backdrop, making it an eye-catching focal point.
  • Before you finalize your backdrop, check that the attachment points are sturdy and secured. Reinforce weak points to avoid issues during the event. This ensures your backdrop stays intact and flawless throughout the celebration.

Follow these guidelines to create a captivating greenery background that will serve as a gorgeous centerpiece in your event space.
