Photobooth Ideas

Whenever I throw a big party, I always like to have a photobooth set up where my guest can have their photo taken as a way to remember the night. They always end up being so fun! Here are a few of my favorite ideas from over the years. Do you like having photobooths at your parties?

    That garland back drop is adorable. I’m throwing an “End-of-Summer” party in a few weeks, so I will definitely have to try that one out. Thank you for sharing!

    All of these backdrops are too awesome. My favorite is the sequin one, perfect for a New Year Eve’s party! Can’t wait to begin throwing parties of my own to experiment with ideas like these :)

    I love the garland backdrop… I am helping my friend with her fall wedding and maybe we can use this idea with fall colors, it looks simple… I better get on ordering the paper

    Such a fun idea! Do you print them out then, or send them as a thank you for coming later? Also do you have someone at the party take the pics or do you let everyone just use their own phone?

      So that everyone can access the photos after the party, it’s easiest to use a photo-sharing website (unless you’re using an instant camera.) You can have a photographer friend take all the photos, or have a camera set up for anyone to take photos, or just let everyone use their phones. There are lots of options. :)

    I love a good photobooth! We made a garden version last year from my daughter’s first birthday. We had paper plant headbands and fake shovels and watering cans as props. So fun!

    I absolutely HEART photobooth backdrops! They’re a great way to add WOW to any party. I keep one white wall bare in our dining/living area just for this purpose. There’s always birthdays and what-not going on so it’s nice to have a space set aside especially for it :-) Btw, I LOVE this blog! It’s one of my GO-TO places each morning for creative fuel, so thank you for always inspiring 😉

    I love photobooths and just set one up for Theo’s 1st birthday. Used the same backdrop from Lucas’ 1st birthday but with props from your blog and some others. SO fun! We used our Fuji Instax camera as well as my phone. One of my all time fave backdrops is your hot air balloon one. Brilliant! 😉 Thanks for all the inspiration Jordan!

    My husband and I always wanted to have photobooths but we didn’t really like the digital options so we just bought a vintage camper and put a photobooth and darkroom inside ( but I would still like to try one of these backdrops in our camper!

    I absolutely LOVE the fringe garland backdrop! How wide did you make your fringes? I’ve been trying to figure out the happy medium between being thrifty with my crepe paper and having nice big fringey bits! Also, how would you suggest attaching them to the roof?
