It’s Kentucky Derby Time!

It’s time to get prepared for the Kentucky Derby! It’s by far, one of Photo Booth of the Stars’ favorite events to celebrate. The fashion, mint juleps, roses, and of course the beautiful thoroughbreds – there is so much to love! We’ve put together the ultimate inspiration that will have you ready to join in on the festivities!

This Rose Derby Wreath makes the perfect entrance as your guests enter the Derby Party – we love it! Stacy over at She’s Kinda Crafty made this beauty by cutting a styrofoam wreath form into the shape of a U. She glued pretty ribbon along the sides and back to camouflage the foam, and hot glued faux roses all along the front of the wreath. Awesome idea and it turned out beautifully.

Stacy made her gorgeous wreath to present to the hostess of a Derby Party. What a great gift idea!

We found the above picture along with several lovely party tips for the Kentucky Derby over on Homes.com. We adore the centerpiece idea shown up above – especially that moss mat runner! The little toy horses are from the Dollar Tree and are wearing a piece of cloth with attached felt number stuck to them. It’s a stunning centerpiece arrangement and we can’t wait to mimic it! You can head over to check it out, as well as all of the great ideas for your spread by clicking HERE.

The Mint Julep is THE traditional cocktail enjoyed at the Kentucky derby – it’s only right to include them at your party! Guests of all ages can ‘wet their whistles’ with these Mock Mint Juleps that we found on Taste of Home. It’s always fun to honor a signature drink at an event, and it’s even better to have an alternative non-alcoholic option for people to enjoy as well. You can check out the recipe for the mock-tails by clicking HERE.

Celebrate Easter in A Big Way!

Easter Sunday is almost here! Photo Booth of the Stars is ready to have some fun and celebrate – are you? Today we’re sharing some awesome ways to celebrate this year!

Frugal Coupon Living

Easter is all about egg hunting, candy, and treats. These Easter Carrot Treats couldn’t be easier, or more fun to make! Since the recipe only includes three ingredients – these are a must! They are adorable and add such a fun pop of color to the table. We found these little snacks on Frugal Coupon Living and you can get the recipe by clicking HERE.

Food Family Finds

We’re pretty sure it is obvious why we wanted to share this Easter Bunny Dirt Cake…its delightful! It’s so bright and spring-like that we might not even want to devour it. Nah, we definitely still want to devour it!

Get the recipe from Food Family Finds by clicking HERE and be sure to let us know how long it lasted at your get together.

Crafty Endeavor

Dyeing eggs is a wonderful tradition, however the process can get a little messy and stain your fingers and everything else in sight. Now you can create these string egg shells and pass on the residual stained fingertips for days to come. One of our Photo Booth staff members brought up a great point that we have to agree with, these eggs won’t crack! You can use them year after year. We think they would make a pretty stellar photo booth back drop as well.

Head on over to Crafty Endeavor by clicking HERE to check out the tutorial and string together some egg garland just in time for Easter.

Surviving the Stores

It’s funny how life works. Right after we were having our discussion about the messiness of dyeing eggs, we came across these tips on how to do it without the mess. For those of you who would enjoy a little guidance for keeping your dyeing clean, you are going to love these suggestions. Head over to Surviving the Stores by clicking HERE and discover the secret behind it.
