You’re at a big event — a wedding, graduation party, holiday celebration or office retreat — and outside of the food and drinks, one of the first things you notice is a photo booth. Next thing you know, you’re gathering up your buddies and telling everyone to hop in and say “Cheese!”
People love taking selfies – period. They can instantly post them on their social media accounts, which they do. Those snapshots taken inside a photo booth show how much the event was worth celebrating.
And while those photos can spice up your Instagram or Facebook pages and help attract new followers, that’s not the only way to enjoy your pictures once the party is over. Whether you end up with digital photos or photo strips, there are fun things to do with those photos. Let’s take a closer look at how photos can become unique decorative items.
What Can You Do With Photo Booth Pictures?
If you have print outs of your photo booth pictures, don’t toss them in your desk drawer. There are some awesome ways to turn your #selfie collection into something lasting — and fun. Chances are if you try even one of these ideas, you’re going to be eager to get to the next special event that has a photo booth.
Photo booths have become enormously popular at special events for a simple reason: they capture on film just how exciting, magical or memorable that particular event was. They can take you back to a day you have fond memories of, and they give you something lasting from that event. You may not be the bride or groom, the graduating student or the executive who just got promoted, but that doesn’t matter: Your photos are yours to cherish forever.
So what else can you do with your photos besides impress your Instagram followers? Here are some creative ideas:
Scrapbooking has been a popular hobby for decades, and that’s no surprise: photo albums are a delightful way to organize your event photos. In fact, scrapbooking is appealing because you’ll not only have a layout for photos for a particular event, place, or even year but can also include other mementos you picked up that remind you of the event. Once filled with all those memories, these scrapbooks can be updated constantly, and are a fun thing to place on your coffee table for guests to browse through.
Chances are we all know someone who has a refrigerator covered with magnets — and you might even be one of them! If that’s the case, did you know your photos are an ideal item for your fridge? Today it’s easy to turn photos into magnets, and they’re a fun conversation piece when you have guests or family arrive for a visit.
What kind of calendars do you normally like? European castles? Cute cats? The great meals of Italy? Here’s another idea: how about 12 of the best photos you took at that last big event with a photo booth, and turning them into your very own twelve-month calendar? Every month, you can relive some joyous memories of how you and your friends had a great time at that celebration.
If you left the celebration with a lot of photos — and we all know how fun photo booths can be, so who wants to take just one or two pictures and call it quits? — then you might not have thought about a poster on your wall as an option. After all, doesn’t that mean you have to narrow down your collection of party photos to just one?
Nope! That’s what’s so appealing about creating a poster out of your photos — you can mix them all together into a unique and intricate collage and create a winning poster that will have all your friends stopping to check it out. Talk about a great conversation piece!
Coffee Table Coasters
You have some friends over, and you ask if anyone would like some coffee. As you’re brewing the java, you place new coasters on the coffee table — and guess what’s on them? Printing a set of coasters using your photo booth pictures is truly enjoyable, and gives your guests something to check out and talk about before the coffee is served.
The bottom line: there’s really a LOT you can do with your photos, whether they’re sweet, wacky, funny, or innovative. Photo booths have been a major hit at parties and other events for years now, and that popularity shows no signs of declining anytime soon. And the good news is your photos can also become a fun diversion, giving your friends and family a bit of added entertainment every time they visit.
