Masquerade is one of the all-time most popular event themes because of its grandeur and dramatic potential.
Our masquerade collection of backdrops will magically transform your venue into the canals and cobbled laneways of medieval Venice.
The tradition of masquerade balls started in 15th century France. There were often held to celebrate marriages in noble families and amongst royalty.
The trend of masquerade balls soon spread across Europe. They were generally elaborate dances held for members of the upper classes, and were particularly popular in Venice. They have long been associated with the tradition of the Venetian Carnival.
Masquerade balls were sometimes set up as a game among the guests. The masked guests were supposedly dressed so as to be unidentifiable which would then lead to everyone trying to guess who was who.
For a masquerade theme that is not necessarily Venetian, the Carnival Mask 1 Carnival Mask 2 backdrops are perfect and could just as easily be part of a Shakespearean-inspired party or even a Louis XIV-style romp.
