Welcome to part two of Ro’s second birthday party, the photo booth! I love photo booths. Call them cliche, call them basic, I don’t care because they are so much fun. Whether they’re full of props or just a place to document who was there, I think a photo booth is a always great idea.
The hardest part of all of this was definitely getting the little ones to cooperate. But you do the best you can with what you’ve got which is why the picture of both my boys is Gav with a helmet on from bike riding and Ro trying desperately to get the sunglasses to go on his face. For my props, I found a few things round the house (i.e. the gold frame and left over party favor glasses).
To make the back drop, I took two black tri-fold presentation boards, wrote on the top, and splattered both with white paint. I stuck them to our car port wall with some command picture hanging strips and they held up for the entire party. If you’re not into DIY then you can get party photo booth rentals from Austin’s Best DJs (if you live in the area), but I always find doing it myself makes it more personalised.
One of my props was a chalkboard that brave guests could fill in with how many times they’ve been around the sun. Go figure, two of our oldest guests were more than happy to share! For the most part though, guests really just had fun taking pictures with their loved ones. ENJOY!
Next up is part three, the special note we added in our inviation. I’m so excited about this and can’t wait to share!
