Is your house a mess? Do you have a video call this afternoon? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Forget cleaning, instead, hide the mess with one of these home backgrounds. Is your house spotless, but you want to spice up your next virtual class? Surprise your peers with a fun change of scenery. Add accessories and props to put a smile on everyone’s face.
1. Tropical Oasis
We all could use a vacation right now. Take your co-workers or fellow students to the tropics with this island scene background. Pretend you are on the beaches of Miami, or display a beautiful tropical sunset. Make sure you dress the part as well. Put on a straw beachcomber hat and leis with some sunglasses and people will be convinced you are soaking up the sun on the beach!
If you are finding yourself eating macaroons all day because you are bored and over social distancing, why not take your meetings to Paris! This Paris at night background has a sort of je ne sais quoi? Become runway chic with Paris wearables like berets, top hats and boas. So, fire up your computer, jump into your virtual meeting and ask, Parlez-vous francais?
3. Ski Mountain
If you are more of the adventurous type, set up this ski mountain backdrop. Pretend you are in Aspen or the Alps and take your video call on the mountain. We must warn you though, you never know what you might find on the mountain. There could be a fishing polar bear, or some playful penguins also in the background. Or, become a yodeler on the mountain with these Bavarian suspenders and German Alpine hat. Create blizzard conditions with these hanging snowflakes and maybe you will be able to convince your boss that you need a snow day?!
4. Waterfall Jungle
There’s been a lot of talk about Tigers lately, why not jump on the bandwagon and head out into the jungle. Create your own watering hole with this waterfall video backdrop and show up to your next video meeting as a safari guide in your safari vehicle! Set up some animal standees but assure your co-workers and friends that you have it under control. Working with the kids at home? No worries! Get them involved with this safari guide and lion cub costume!
5. New York
The city may be shut down, but you can have your meeting downtown with this Statue of Liberty background or New York City at night backdrop. This background allows you to play any role. Be a taxi cab driver, own a hotdog stand or go uptown and be followed by paparazzi. Conduct business in the big city from the comfort of your own home.
Bonus Tip: Miss your boss?
Feel like you just can’t work properly without him or her watching your every move? Shindigz has a solution for you. Order a life-size custom cutout of your boss and set it up in the corner. You will become productive in no time! The best part about these backgrounds is that they work with all video conferencing platforms including Skype, Zoom and Google Hangouts. So put on your best pajama pants and spice up your meetings at home.
