A Holiday Photo Booth

I love pictures. It always seems to me that no party is complete without a photo booth. We usually do photo booths with silly hats and costumes, but with my four-year-old's birthday being so close to Christmas, this year we decided to do a Christmas themed one.
 With Christmas and the four-tiered birthday cake my little begged me to make, I wanted the photo booth to be as simple as possible. I went to the dollar store and a variety of Christmas hats, they had a great selection of Santa hats and some reindeer antlers. The cute elf hats were one I had on hand in my prop box, but I think they were purchased at a place like Wal-mart.
 Instead of setting up all of my drapes (I love my drape stand that my husband made me but it is huge!) I tacked a regular bed sheet to the wall as a back drop. I included some strands of garland for the kids to wrap themselves in if they wanted.
It wasn't the most elaborate photo booth I have ever done, but with the craziness of the holidays it was just the right amount of stress. 
After a party with a photo booth, I take the pictures off my camera and upload them all to a Shutterfly Share Site, so that guests can see all the pictures and download them. I also usually print one 4x6 of each guest so my daughter can write her thank you notes on the back of them.

Photo booths are such a fun way to remember a party, whether it be a birthday, Christmas or family party. They are some of our favorite pictures to looks back on.
