These days, no party is complete without a photo booth. They're not only a fun addition to any shindig, but they're a great way to capture memories and they create the most meaningful party favors in the world.
While renting an old-timey booth or hiring a company to run one are both nice options, they cost a pretty penny. The reality is, creating a custom photo booth using the electronics most of us already have around the house (e.g. your computer, digital camera, printer, phone) isn't very complicated. In fact, it's relatively straightforward. And, when you combine the "photo taking device" with some custom photo props or easy DIY backgrounds, your photo booth becomes the life of the party.
Follow along as we share everything you need to know about creating a custom photo booth for the party of your dreams!

So, we enlisted the help of Pinterest and our Silhouette Cameo cutting machine and made it magical. Read on to see what we did.
Our little girl is turning four next week, and we're in full party planning mode. This year's planning is especially interesting since we're living in a house with no kitchen, and in various but consistent states of complete chaos. Nevertheless, it's our four-year-old's birthday, and there will be a rockin' little kids' birthday... in, um, an octogenarian par-tay room.
