In The Heights - School Decorations

how to create a removable/decorative canopy

This week I was giving a helping hand at my daughter's school with their newest production:

My daughter is one of the junior sound engineers. They all have worked so hard and have done such a good job, I am so ready to go and watch the show, tonight is the opening!

But this post is about my job, I was in charge of giving the concession stand a more festive look.

During the week my family room was the one that looked pretty festive with the banners I was assembling.

A canopy for the front window was the most important item in my plan. The materials I used were cheap plastic tablecloths.

Wooden supports were nailed together.

Painted, and then the canopy was stapled to them.

With strong pieces of Velcro it was attached to the wall.

Some wall signs and that was it!

The spirit of The Heights came right there to the concession stand  :)

Have a great weekend, every one!


  1. You are TOO much Cristina! I'll bet they are so glad to have a mom like you around to do stuff like that. They probably all call you super mom! ;) It looks awesome. Great job!


  2. You did a wonderful job. I love how festive it looks and was time consuming but cheap to put together. Isn't theater fun? I used to do costuming for local theaters and loved it. I was also involved in children's theater here and that was a blast- xo Diana

  3. It looks so wonderful! You definitely gave the store a much needed face-lift. Is there anything you can't do, Cristina?! :) Have a great weekend!

  4. Wonderful work! Your daughter must be very proud of you.


  5. Love the store front! What an amazing job you have done Cristina.

  6. Holy Cow! That looks amazing! I never would have come up with a cool canopy like that, you are so creative! What a fun way to dress things up your daughter must have been so happy, you are an awesome Mom! I love it! And thanks for your sweet comments on my blog!
