Graduation Party Ideas

Whether it is high school or college, graduation is a milestone that everyone looks forward to. So why not make your special occasion even more memorable?  Throwing a celebration bash for your child will show them how proud you are of their hard work and dedication. So, where do you start?

An easy way to get things rolling is to pick a theme.  Is your child involved in sports or plays and performances? Or are they traveling in the upcoming year?  Any of these will be perfect for a graduation theme.  Once you pick something that reflects your child’s personality you can easily find decorations and party supplies to match.

Giving out party favors is always an excellent party technique as well.  This is a time to remember your child’s final high school or college days and giving a party favor will help your guests remember the event as well.

The most important part of any party has to be the entertainment.  It can make or break whether your party is a fun time or a dull time.  Including a photo booth at your party will not only create lasting memories but will provide tons of amusement throughout the entire evening!  With unlimited options, these booths can now be customized to fit any theme and event. Don’t see anything that fits the theme of your party, perfectly? Not a problem! Either design the logo on your own or put the staff to work! Complete with props, green screens, customizable captions and enough room for up to eight guests – a photo booth at your celebration is sure to put your party on the map.  It can be a great favor for your guests.  Top Hat Photo Booth assures innovation and reliability so you can relax and enjoy the special day with your guests and one less thing to worry about helps in every way.

Not only will you and your guests enjoy the fun while taking the photos but you will be able to look back fondly and laugh at the memories you have made. Most photo booth packages include a print for the guests and a print for the graduate of honor to keep in a scrapbook! Now you can throw the best graduation party to honor all your child’s achievements.

Photo Booths & Weddings

March 8th, 2013

From Contributing Blogger Sofia Angeli:

 

You see them in most events these days.  And they’re often there to add fun to the occasions.   They’ve actually become a trend for parties, especially wedding receptions. Photo booths have definitely come a long way from the early kiosks that were mainly there to provide instant ID photos and, at times, fun to kids and kids-at-heart.  But how did the photo booth reach its new status of becoming almost a staple in weddings today?

A bit of history

The curtained photo booth that most people remember today is attributed to Russian Anatol Josepho.  The one standing on Broadway, New York City, USA in 1925 is said to be the first of the many photo booths to come later.

images

In those days, digital cameras were never thought of and it took days for regular consumers to have their photos printed out.  But this novelty machine generated photo prints in about 10 minutes.  For those who needed to have their faces on ID cards, necessary documents, application forms, etc., it was a very welcome convenience.  And for those who wanted a new kind of entertainment or fun souvenir, well, it was also a very welcome convenience.

Photo sticker booths

The Japanese introduced a version of the photo booth that made the machine more entertaining than it was before.  In the 1990s, the photo sticker booth came about in Japan and also became a trend in South Korea, Taiwan, the Philippines and other Asian countries. It was also introduced in Australia, Europe and North America.

This opened up the people’s minds to the idea of the photo booth being used mainly for fun and souvenir purposes.   For a minimal amount, you can have your solo or group photo taken and have them printed on sticker paper.  You can also pick the design or background that you want.

The main reason why most adults didn’t fully embrace this purikura, the Japanese shortened word for “print club,” is that it features mostly animé designs that are quite juvenile for the tastes of many.  Customers of these Japanese photo sticker booths are mostly teenagers.

Photo booths and engagement rings

Then came someone who had this ingenious idea of using the enclosed photo booth as the venue for his marriage proposal.  Now, it’s become a logical choice for those who’d like to ask someone to marry them.

As long as you’ve got good timing, the photo booth will provide you an image capture series of the surprise, happiness and, possibly, tears when you popped the question and presented the ring to her.  And it provides a good amount of privacy, too.

Wedding fun and favours

As mentioned earlier, the photo booth is now a famous entertainment alternative in wedding celebrations.  Most photo booth rentals can now even offer you a selection of outputs – usually black-and-white prints, stickers and full-colour photos.

You can use them not just for you and your guests to get wacky photos with props and a themed backdrop.  Some photo booth services also offer image albums that can replace the old-school store-bought guest book.  Your guests can write their wishes and notes to you on that album.  You can even hold a contest for the most hilarious pose or any other category that would go with your theme.

Decades ago, you probably won’t see photo booths and weddings in the same sentence.  But now, this image capture machine attracts the second longest queue in a wedding – next to the buffet.

If you’re considering having a photo booth in your own wedding reception, talk to the rental company about your theme and your plans for the party.  Remember how the current photo booth craze came about, and don’t be surprised if they can offer you some ideas you never thought were possible.

Who needs another candle, bottle opener, or coaster.  The best wedding favor is the guests experience of a photo booth and capturing the fun on their photo strips. Everyone keeps coming back and posing in front of the camera using our upscale props to enhance their photo fun.  They go back to the tables laughing and showing off their photos.  Not only do they get  a photo but the second print is put into a memory album/guest book for the bride and groom to enjoy  and remind them of their special day.
