Photo Booth Party Activity

Photo booths are popping up all over the place when it comes to celebrating. We've showcased a few in recent months and continue to love the activity idea more and more.

Not only do photo booths enhance the fun factor at a party, or any celebration, they also give you an easy and inexpensive favor to pass along to your guests that truly capture the great time had by all.

Nowadays, sharing party pictures on social channels like Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest is almost a requirement -- I know my friends are sending me notes asking where the photos from a recent event are within 48 hours of it being over! Photo booth shots give friends a glimpse at all the silly and special moments shared at a gathering, but also make for great viewing for those who weren't able to make it.


Ideas to enjoy photo booth fun at your next party:



You don't need to set up an actual booth. A simple piece of fabric to match your decor can be hung from the wall to pose in front of, or you could take the approach our contributor Emily did and hang a basic banner, even still you might set up a themed backdrop like the one above from a Paris theme party.



Props make photo booths even more fun. Emily created printable President beards for her theme party photo booth. And we, the Celebration team, ordered the funniest props we could find at our party store to pose with for our About Us page. Any and all props will amp up the fun, so get creative and pose away!

Camera shy? No need to worry about getting the perfect pose. Take as many shots as you'd like - in the silliest way you want! Camera phones and digital cameras have a near endless supply of memory to fill.

Polaroid cameras make it a take away gift, too. Photos snapped with a Polaroid camera make it so easy to pass pictures off to guests as a party favor.

For bigger parties, like weddings, I've seen couples create scrapbooks with the pictures taken of their guests with a photo booth. Guests take a copy of their shoot as a favor, too!
