Backdrop Bedford

Planning a party can be stressful. But being able to source several of the key components all from one place will have you well on your way to hosting a beautifully decorated, low-stress occasion!

Backdrop Bedford is an event rental business owned by Brooke and Will Gray and created, practically, out of necessity! When planning their own nuptials in 2022, the couple was surprised to find a local hole in this industry. Having just moved back from Charlotte, NC (Brooke is a Lynchburg native), they were unable to find several of the elements they had hoped to include as a part of their big day. Because the pair are collectively both inventive and handy, they made a plan and decided to execute it themselves - all the while thinking about how they might be able to help other area couples (and party-throwers in general!) not have to go through the same sourcing hassle that they did.

A few months after they tied the knot, the Grays launched Backdrop Bedford. Their business provides balloon garlands, towers, and arches; feature walls (as simple or as elaborate as you wish), and backdrops of all shapes and sizes - think: doors, rings, champagne displays, marquee lights, etc.. Oh! I can't forget their latest addition: two white inflatable bounce houses.

Because each celebration is unique, the Grays would love to talk with you about creating a custom package that perfectly suits your event. Just think of not having to worry one bit about decor or entertainment. A few well-placed elements quickly take any space from plain to festive! The backdrops also create amazing photo opportunities for your soiree. Planning a weekend or even week-long event? Never fear. The balloon installations can last in excess of a month if kept indoors and out of extreme temperatures.

One thing Brooke and Will want to be clear about is pricing. You'll find up-front costs for basic rentals right on their website, so you'll know what might fit best within your party budget. Here are just a few of the occasions to which Backdrop Bedford is able add their special touch: birthdays, anniversaries, showers, graduations, weddings, holiday gatherings like Memorial Day, Labor Day, July 4th, Christmas, Thanksgiving, Halloween, and New Year's Eve… They serve all your decor needs from small grab-and-go balloon bouquets to large-scale corporate events.

Did the white bounce houses I mentioned earlier pique your interest? The White Bounce House, is the first and only franchise of the company in Virginia and fits seamlessly into Backdrop Bedford's offerings. Renting high-quality inflatables that do not consist of the typical primary colors allows you to perfectly blend your entertainment with your decor theme. There are sizes appropriate for both adults and children and the houses can even be set up indoors. Of course, the company is fully insured. This interactive touch of whimsy is sure to be a hit with your guests of all ages!

The Grays are full-time residents of Bedford, VA and own property at Smith Mountain Lake as well. Each week they put in their time at individual 9-5s and then can't wait for the opportunity to go to work for their BB clients on the weekends, which, Brooke admits, is way more fun! They provide set up and tear down service with all of their rentals, and will travel throughout Bedford, Lynchburg, and Smith Mountain Lake to help make your next gathering a memorable one.
