First, open the box and take out the gold metal round backdrop stand. Put the pieces together to create the round arch shape. After that, cover it with the navy blue shiny cloth that comes in the box.

Arrange three clear plastic cylinder stands at different heights. Cover each stand with stretchy beige fabric. The varying heights will make them look 3D against the dark blue background, and the beige covers will stand out strongly against the blue.

Step 3: Add the Letter and Number Stickers

For crafting a sophisticated backdrop arrangement, fashion a balloon garland using latex balloons in shades of navy blue, white, and shimmering gold. Fasten the balloons collectively and affix them to a single side of the arch, producing a captivating and theatrical impact.

To add the final elegant details, utilize a cupcake stand with a white round ribbon-trimmed cupcake stand to showcase your cake.
