This year Justin and I are in charge of our church Christmas party. Justin has been a live saver! He’s headed up giving out all the assignments and getting it all organized, while I have been creating 12 days worth of posts, and trying my darnedest not to go crazy! (it is HARD) Anyway, at the party, we are doing a breakfast, a short program and then letting families take a walk through Bethlehem to see a live nativity.
We are really excited about it, and I am sort of counting down the day still I can focus just on the party… and be done with all my Christmas projects. Well, so the plan was all complete until I saw something that I couldn’t leave out on instagram. I noticed that another blogger, Mallory from Classy Clutter did a Christmas photo booth for her Church’s party and I realized I had to do one (just keeping up with the Joneses… I kid, it just looked so great and SO fun, I had to include it!) I am SO excited about putting it together!
Today, I thought I would share it with you the research I’ve been doing to prep the booth! This photo booth idea would be great for a family party, an ugly sweater party, birthday party, new years… just switch out some props and colors!
Christmas Photo Booth Ideas
We don’t like to make any holes in the walls of the church, to keep the building as nice as possible. So we have to have solutions that can be made without attaching anything to the walls.
I love how this mom, used a rigid sheet of Styrofoam from the local home store, and just pinned some fabric to it…! PERFECTO!
I love the painterly effect on this background (source is missing on pinterest, sorry). You could paint some Canvas drop cloths… then pin them to the stryofoam!
You can build a pipe structure, and attach some hanging streamers like this one:
This tablecloth backdrop could be done in any color combos that you love!
Background Decor Ideas:
This Santa and Reindeer garland would be cute layered over a backdrop.
Love this sequin garland available on Etsy!
Buy this cute printable garland for about $5 bucks! Done! (comes with 2 other garlands)
Photo Prop Options:
I don’t know about you, but time is always an issue around here. While I would LOVE to be able to make everything by hand…it is SO nice to be able to just download and print some props.
Another fun option at Talk Crafty to Me.
Or you can buy this cute set from Etsy, I love the top hats.
Hope this helps get your Christmas Photo Booth together in a snap!
