Ocean Horizon Backdrop
Fill your party space with ocean views as far as the eye can see with this super-easy seaside horizon backdrop.
This simple optical illusion can fill any size space with two shades of blue bulletin board paper or fabric and makes a great bar background.
1 roll sky-blue bulletin board paper
1 roll navy-blue bulletin board paper
We really like the "Better Than Paper" brand of bulletin board paper because it has a plastic coating that makes it so much easier to use.
Add a single layer of light blue tulle over the paper to even out the color and reduce glare (optional).
Add the navy blue paper bulletin board paper with the top edge at eye level.
Add a single layer of glittered, turquoise or blue tulle over the paper to even out the color and add a shimmer to the water's surface (optional).
Add a ship, sailboat, lighthouse, or island to your horizon (optional).
Use tulle, sheers, curtains, or fabric if you need to transition any of the edges.
And, that's all it takes to create an ocean horizon backdrop!
For reference, this is the real-life ocean horizon photo that we used for inspiration.
Make a big impression on your guests when you include a sweeping view of the ocean on a distant wall, at the end of a hallway, or behind the bar.
