If you are renting a photo booth for your next party, props are a fun way to make sure you end up with some really memorable photos. If you are short on time, the easiest way to get great props for your party is to purchase a props package from the photo booth company you are working with. These packages may include hats, wigs, sunglasses, boas, masks, and other props sure to spark your guests’ creativity.
Most photo booth rental companies will also let you bring your own props. If your party has a specific theme, such as a luau or pirate party, you can tailor the props to fit with your theme to help your guests get into the spirit of the party. Party stores are a good place to find fun costumes and props, but they can be pricey. To get a good selection of props on a budget, try shopping right after a holiday, when many seasonal items will be on clearance.
If you’re the creative type, you can even save some money by making your own props. Mustaches on a stick, empty picture frames for your guests to put their faces through, and sock puppets are all simple to make and fun to bring into a photo booth.
If you want to keep copies of your guests’ photo strips, you can give them the chance to leave you a message right in the picture by providing a small chalkboard or dry erase board. Just make sure it is small enough to fit in the photo frame!
When putting together your prop kit, don’t worry about what the typical props are. Choose what you think will be the most fun! Just make sure all of your props are visible from the waist up. Hula skirts and funky shoes may be a hit at a costume party, but are not good props for a photo booth.
No matter what you choose to do, props can definitely add that extra something to your photo booth experience.
