Thanksgiving Deliciousness from Photo Booth of the Stars!

Thanksgiving – It’s a beautiful holiday chalk full of tradition, loved ones, football, and food. We thought it would be lovely to dedicate a post solely to Thanksgiving deliciousness. After all, we only celebrate it once a year and we at Photo Booth of the Stars concur that in itself deserves its own post!

No Thanksgiving meal is complete without Pumpkin Pie, and we just love these little minis we found over on Home is Where the Boat Is. Aren’t they stunning? Almost too good to eat, but we’d like to be the judge of that!

Here is an idea we thought is really cool that you could even prep prior to your festivities and then complete with your guests. It’s a thankful-garland. The leaves are spray painted gold which gives them a really pretty, almost glow to them. You and your guests can each write something you are thankful for and hang them from the branch, or branches if you’d like to make a thankful tree. Once the garland is complete hang it up in the photo booth and grab some props – time for the fun to begin!

Have you ever sat back and thought, what am I going to do with all of that plywood? We haven’t, but if you have this is for you! Make a light-weight chalkboard backdrop that you can use endlessly at all of your functions. Not only would this be a fantastic with HAPPY THANKSGIVING written on it with typography, but think about little Suzy’s first day of 2nd grade, Jonny’s upcoming birthday, Xmas – you get the point! It’s a splendid idea.
