It was awesome! The weather was perfect!
Thank you Bryan and Neal! The party was so much fun.
My last post, I showed you a few pictures from the photo booth we created. I put together a fun slideshow to showcase everyone's photo at the party. I used Smilebox. The first song is The Wanderer by Dion. I chose that song, due to my husband's speech. It doesn't mean he is a womanizer...ha ha. He meant he will wander through life and enjoy it, one day at a time.
I can't believe how much fun the photo booth was. People got so silly. It is a sure way to get your party started and get everyone laughing. We had quite a bit of props already, left over from Halloween parties. We added some new props also. The dollar store was a great place to pick up some inexpensive (cheap) props.
It all started with a sheet with a nice pattern to mimic wallpaper. We bought a extra large picture frame to hang. I also bought 2 smaller frames, so people could hold them.
My husband built the hat rack, so we could hang hat and accessories. He also set up spot lights, because the party was at night. We set up the camera on a tripod with a remote camera control.We bought ours on Ebay. Here's one at Overstock.com for $5.99 Just make sure you get the one that is compatible with your camera. That way everyone can take their own pictures.
You can also buy an Eye-Fi card for your camera, and watch the photos on your ipad, still at the party. Get the free ipad app Eye-fi
too! The FREE Eye-Fi App means that you can now shoot wirelessly from your digital camera to an iPad, iPhone or iPod touch without having to have both devices connected to a WiFi hotspot. This is AWESOME NEWS! Even if you're out in the middle of nowhere, you would still be able to shoot and transfer the images to your mobile device.
I finished the photos by cropping them.
Enjoy the tips! Have fun and create your own photo booth. I am sure a lot of you have some cool props sitting in a closet somewhere. Thank you for visiting!
