Putting Up a Backdrop That Can't Be Attached to the Wall

I am decorating for my sons school banquet and the hall will not allow us to attach anything to the wall or ceiling. We want to hang a backdrop behind a display that stands 9 feet tall. Any ideas?

I use a background stand as a photographer. It is 2 metal light stands on each side and a long bar between them. If you have a photographer friend, they may let you borrow one. The background bar looks like it would be simply to make out of pvc pipes and you can use a portable clothes rack on each side for the stands or something like that. I attach the background with clamps I bought from Home Depot. My stand goes up to 10 feet and is about 10 feet long.

Make a frame out of PVC pipe from the hardware store. It is lightweight, but sturdy enough to hold a curtain. Good luck!

You could try 'starching' it to the wall, you just moisten it to peel it off.
