{Summer Catch-Up} A Party & Photo Booth Fun

I'm behind in sharing some of our best times so far this summer, so I'll be playing a little catch up here this week. Rewind to early July ... my baby turned 10, and celebrated with a Paris-themed, sleepover, pool party with eight of her closest friends! The girls had a blast decorating their own cupcakes, swimming in the pool, holding a pajama dance party, and - the big attraction - dressing up for some photo booth fun.
A photo booth is a fun party activity - but could also provide hours of entertainment on a hot or rainy summer day. Setting up the booth was almost as much fun as doing the photo shoot. We raided our closets and dress up chest for props. For a backdrop, we simply tacked a sheet to the wall and added a wall décor Eiffel Tower from my gal's room. This was such a hit with the party girls, it was repeated at a family celebration a few nights later! And I have a feeling, we'll be doing this again before the summer ends...
Try It! Have some photo booth fun this summer.
  • Get started by selecting a location with good lighting to set up your booth.
  • Next, make a backdrop by hanging a sheet or material on the wall, or alternatively, use a screen, or paint a backdrop on easel paper to tape up.
  • Gather your props - think of things you can wear as well as hold/carry. Get your kids involved in this part - they'll love it! You can make some props too (a cut out mustache and glittery lips on bamboo skewers were among our most faves)!
  • Take turns dressing up and taking pictures - kids like to be the photographer too!
  • Be sure to print some of the best images to send home with guests, or for your family to enjoy.
