I got back last night from a short jaunt down to Texas. It was a wonderful few days and even as I enjoyed the sunny weather, the trip got me excited for the holidays. Texans know how to celebrate anything and everything and Christmas is no exception. Returning home, I can’t wait to get cooking, decorating, crafting and hosting. I’ve already worked out the perfect theme for our tree, planned my list of festive baking and started shopping for gifts. With snow on the ground, it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas is coming.
Here's an idea that was a huge hit at our wedding rehearsal dinner and with a few tweaks this would be a blast at a holiday party. All you need is some fabric, mini chalkboards and chalk, a volunteer with a good camera, and you’ve got yourself a DIY photo booth. Most importantly, you’ll also need some awesome party guests waiting to get into the spirit of the season.
At our rehearsal dinner, we hung two pieces of patterned fabric as backdrops, had guests write messages on chalkboards, and pose for photos. A simple concept, but a big success.
I’m seeing festive plaid fabric, sparkly holiday outfits and merry messages to create a Christmas version. Props could be fun too. Think eggnog, mistletoe and Santa hats. Get creative!
I wondered how the photo booth would be received at our dinner, but it turned out to be a great addition to the night and everyone participated from the kids to grandparents. If you add a festive photo booth to your holiday party, send me your snap shots. I’d love to see your version of the fun.
