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.

Create Craft Love

Boy-oh-boy! We hit the mother-load when we came across this Ultimate Guide to Easter Printables! You have got to check out this group of festive freebies. There is something for every occasion and they are all equally brilliant. We can’t wait to see them all inside our photo booth rentals. Check out all of the awesome finds over at Create Craft Love by clicking HERE.

Get Prepared For St. Patrick’s Day!

Never iron a four-leaf clover, because you don’t want to press your luck!

St. Patrick’s Day is in the air around the Photo Booth of the Stars. In fact, we are almost positive a Leprechaun snuck in and left behind some lucky photo booth props – we are not complaining!

We thought it would be fun to join in the celebration and share some really neat ideas that we found on the web that will have you feeling “green” for the festivities. These ideas were each hand-picked by our Photo Booth of the Stars Staff and we think you will enjoy them!

Landee See Landee Do

This Burlap Mantel Décor from Landee See Landee Do is the perfect décor for St. Patty’s Day! We were drawn to the greens and the gold that really seem to pop. Because it is minimal décor, it is just enough and doesn’t feel overdone. It really gives off a fun, positive, vibe. You should definitely check out how she did it HERE.

Five Heart Home

Of course, Photo Booth of the Stars just loves a good printable and every event should include some of them! We love this Irish Blessings Printable we found from Five Heart Home.   Head on over and grab your own cheerful little printable HERE.

Picture found on The Busy Budgeting Mama

In need of some festive party or wedding favors? These adorably dressed chocolate kisses are great! We think that they would be widely appreciated as classroom favors as well. The kids are going to love getting these lucky little kisses!

We found the cute picture of the favors over on The Busy Budgeting Mama, who had originally came across this idea from It Is What It Is – Pictures, Projects, and Printables. Great work ladies! We are glad we came across this! You can head over by clicking HERE to get your own free little printables so you can whip up some of these little favor bags yourself.

Untitled

There is a really fun game we have been playing with everyone at Photo Booth of the Stars and you are going to love it! It’s called “What’s Your Leprechaun Name?”

We found it over on Learning Station Music. They have put together a fun little chart so you can figure out your Leprechaun Name from the first letter of your name, and the month you were born. Head over and try it out HERE, but be forewarned by your trusty friend at Photo Booth of the Stars, you might get addicted. We sure did!

Chocolate Covered Oreos are a delicious and easy treat to make that everyone loves! They are a hit at every party and always the first to go!

If you haven’t tried your hand at these sweet little treats, you can find a complete tutorial (with pictures and a printable!!!) over at See Vanessa Craft. She makes it look very unintimidating! Check it out HERE and be sure to send some our way after you make them.

We hope this inspires you helps you prepare for whatever it is you are planning for St. Patty’s Day. Stay tuned for green photo booth props, backdrops, and more fun coming your way!!!

Celebrate Mardi Gras In Style!

Are you ready to get festive for Mardi Gras? Photo Booth of the Stars is and we are thrilled to share some really cool ideas with you that you can enjoy this Fat Tuesday.

First, though, we want to share some knowledge about the history of Mardi Gras so you know why you are celebrating in the first place. Mardi Gras originally came about to mark the end of a time that Roman Catholics called “Carnival Season.” It ended just before the beginning of Lent which starts on Ash Wednesday. Lent is a time where those who observe withhold and repent, so the Tuesday before is known sort of as a last hurrah!

Now that you know why you’re celebrating, enjoy these great DIY’s to get you into the Mardi Gras spirit!

Southern Charm Wreaths

Wow! We can’t get enough of this Deco Mesh Mardi Gras Jester Mask Door Wreath and Garland we found from Southern Charm Wreaths. They are breathtakingly beautiful and everyone at Photo Booth of the Stars agreed that these might just stop traffic!

Want to see how it is done? You are in luck, because there is a step-by-step video that shows exactly how she made her wreath as well as that garland. You can see the videos HERE and make your own.

Purple Patch DIY

We saw these DIY centerpieces and immediately thought they could do double-duty as photo booth prop holders as well as really cool centerpieces. This is a great way to recycle empty wine or various bottles too. You can head over for the tutorial as well as a brilliant tip to get those pesky labels off of you bottles in a snap HERE.

Kids Activities Blog

The whole family will be able to get in on the fun with these Printable Mardi Gras Mask Craft from Kids Activities Blog. Once you have printed and created these fun little masks, they will make the perfect accessory for the photo booth. You can make your own HERE, why not make several different colors so that you will have a variety to choose from in the photo booth rental?

They come complete with a Mardi Gras Sign, Bourbon Street Sign, Fleur de Lis, Comedy Masks, and Green and Purple Masks with Feathers. These will be so fun for everyone to grab and pose away!

Don’t worry about getting out the sewing machine, there are so many ways that you can attach the circles and hang them. You could use a needle and thread, or fishing wire, or even get out the hot glue gun and attach them that way. Hang them and enjoy!
