You can place this at the front of the party room, right by the door. Have the guests pose on the way in to announce them to the other guests. This is handy for birthday parties where people are coming together from other groups. That way, they can meet as they come in, and they’ll have a better time. Place the confetti above the area where the guests stand and pull a trigger that lets confetti fall down. Announce them and enjoy the mayhem that ensues. The party favor is the instant picture they get.
Hawaiian Floral Wreaths
Your photo booth props are one of the best ways to create interest in guests using the station. Have them wear Hawaiian wreaths and pose for the picture. This is a great idea for situations where you can’t make tons of props for each guest. Have the guests pick from a few selections and wear them for that picture.
The guests can hold up their chosen Polaroid frame in front of their faces for the picture. Have Velcro pieces that the guests can select and attach to add personalization to the shot. It is one of the most creative photo booth props ever.
You can hand the guests chalk and let them write whatever they want on the board. Then they can pose for their big moment. Guests love this at birthday parties. Make sure to have a washing station right there to wash off the chalk. Make sure to add accents of colors to the background, with frames around various shapes. That way, the guests can fill in the spaces with names and funny things for a laugh.
You can get creative with this. Have character faces that have the center cut out for the guests to hold up to their faces. They can poke their heads through and smile. This is cheaper than those big carnival boards that are similar, and again, you can let the guest keep the props if you like.
This is the easiest one. All you need is a printer to send the pictures from your phone, and boom! You have party favors that guests can keep forever to remember the birthday party.
