Evening in Paris Backdrop Banner
Money well spent!
I was very pleased with my purchase. Assembly of the backdrop was easy and it met my expectations. Glow lights were added and the overhead lights were turned off for an elegant look. The guests are still talking about it. The bride to be loved it. Thanks Oriental Trading. Elsie Dickerson

Cute but has a lot of creases
I bought this for a "photo booth" for a Paris-themed birthday party. While the backdrop looked just like the photo, the crease marks from the banner being folded in its packaging kind of ruined the look for me. Maybe if we pulled each panel a bit tighter when we hung it that may have eliminated some of the creasing. It didn't help that we had a lot of bright natural light in the room. Perhaps if the lighting was low we wouldn't have seen it. We still had a great party though!

I sponsored a New Years eve party with a Paris theme. The banner made a great back drop for the party and for pictures. I didn't think the banner was going to be delieved in time, but it can the morning of New Years eve.

Great for the price!!!
We had a Paris theme for my daughter's 14th birthday party. We used this as the back drop for the photo booth. I had read the reviews before I purchased it, but didn't quite understand what they meant about the "wrinkles/creases" until we unfolded it to look @ it. They are VERY noticeable and my husband literally used a steamer on VERY LOW heat to get rid of as many as he could so we could use it. Prepping it before we could use it took a LOT of extra time, which we had not planned for. The creases are just like the ones you have when you use a new plastic/vinyl table cloth.
Be prepared....it does not come with anything to hang it with & you need to plan for a wall that is big enough to hang it on.
The girls had a blast with the photo booth and the back drop photographed well!! GREAT price for how big it is.
Hopefully this review will help you be better prepared than we were.

Definitely a fun add to the party
The poster is large and a great backdrop to really set the scene. I gave it three stars because it came folded and the creases would not come out. I tried everything! They should up in all the pictures. They should really package this on a roll instead. However, it did make a great addition to the party!

Worthless - had to throw in the trash
Purchased the backdrop of the Eiffel Tower to use in the photo booth for a Monte Carlo Night fundraising event. Backdrop arrived in 3 pieces, as specified, and each piece was folded multiple times into rectangles for shipping. Taped the pieces together and hung on a wall in my home. The fold wrinkles spanned the entire backdrop and were deep and prominent. We let in hang for 3 days in a sunny room but no change in the fold wrinkles. We heated it with a hair dryer and tried to use our fingers to flatten out the fold wrinkles but they remained. We laid it flat on a table, covered it with a towel and used an iron, both with and without steam, directly on the fold wrinkles - no change. Turned the iron up hot enough to actually melt the plastic of the backdrop through the towel and I got a burned section with a wrinkle still running through it! Took it to the event any way, the professional photographer hung it, used weights to pull it down tight and tried taking pictures from different angles to see if the wrinkles could be blurred out or would fade into the backgroup. Looked horrible and was thrown in the trash before guests arrived at the event. Complete waste of money. Don't buy this unless you are ok with a creased, wrinkled backdrop in your photos.

Perfect back drop
We will probably leave this up even after my daughter's party. It really added to the decor.

This was perfect for our Paris Themed party. It really sets the tone and takes up a lot of space. We had to use packing tape to get it to stay on our walls, but it was hardly noticeable. The poster looked great and was a big hit. Well worth the money.
