A Photo Backdrop for any Occasion

Who doesn't love a good party, right? Well, one way to jazz up any party is to have a photo booth where your guests can capture some of the sweet memories they are making. When a good friend of mine was getting married she asked me to help her put together a guest book photo booth and I was more than happy to help her out! Here is a brief overview of what I did.

It all started with scoring some unwanted frames on the cheap at Goodwill.

Then, I fancied them up with some spray paint and gold finishing.

The next few steps are REALLY lacking pictures, but I will do my best to explain.

First, my husband helped me measure and cut PVC pipe in a 5x6 shape, using joints to connect the corners and base. We bolstered the frame with a double sided base.

I then measured out a few yards of fabric and hot-glued seams together to fit it on the pipe. It can easily be taken apart into little pieces and folded up to store.

And, it makes for REALLY cute pictures!

To make their special occasion even more memorable, out friends Matt and Regan used their Polaroid sticky photos to add to their guest book. Look at those cuties.

Hope this is an idea you might be able to find some inspiration from this little post! Sorry about the terrible lack of photos, and the terrible quality of the photos present.

Happy Thursday!

The PVC backdrop is genius...I will be trying that for my niece's Senior pictures. :)
