Turn Any Party Into a Mini Photo Booth With CaptivatingCreation3's Photo Props

Have you ever been to a wedding or a party that had a mobile photo booth complete with props? You know the kind where you step into the Photo Booth wearing crazy hats, flashy feather boa's, and huge sunglasses? As you make silly or funny faces, multiple pictures of you are taken at once.  I recently went to a wedding that had one in April and it was so much fun.  As I was planning Scarlett's birthday party, I knew she'd enjoy Sesame Street themed photo props!

CaptivatingCreation3 is an Etsy shop ran by owner Isabel.  The very talented Isabel creates banners and photo props for your upcoming special occasion.  Whether you're having a baby shower, New Year's Eve party, Bachelorette party or any other themed shindig, Isabel will create exactly what you're looking for if you don't see it in her shop already.  All photo props are hand made on card stock and lollipop sticks.  Ribbons and glitter are optional and entirely up to you.  The props are durable and will truly be a fun addition to any party.  If you're looking to make your next event one to remember, photo props will certainly make that a possibility.

When I was in the planning stages of Scarlett's party, I knew that it would be exciting if the kids had something interesting and interactive to do.  I had a face painter and balloon twister coming to the party to entertain the kids, but I thought they'd enjoy something else creative on top of that.  When I found out that Isabel creates custom Sesame Street photo props, I knew it was just what the party needed!

I worked with Isabel to give her my specifications on exactly what I was looking for, and she was very happy to create precisely what I wanted.  In the end, I received 15 Sesame themed photo props that I absolutely loved including Elmo's Face, a cookie for Cookie Monster, Oscar the Grouch's trashcan lid etc, as well as two that said Scarlett Street and Happy Birthday.  Each prop is related to Sesame Street. 

On the day of the party, I had all of the brightly colored props in a red bucket ready for the party guests to use.  Of course the adults had to get in on all of the action too! I enjoyed turning the lower half of my face into Elmo, as did my husband.  Scarlett's friends liked holding up the Happy Birthday sign as well as the cookie and the cupcake.  The photo props are very unique and really add fun and smiles to any party.  

The props were made well, securely adhered on, and easy to hold.  I noticed they had weight to them and were not flimsy in the slightest.  My party guests mentioned to me how unique the idea for the props were and wanted to do them for future parties for their own families! I told them that was a great idea.

I had originally envisioned using a blank wall in my living room as the "booth", but people ended up just using them wherever they wanted.  Sometimes it's more fun to just let people do things how they want to, rather than how you want them to.

If you're looking for a untraditional and exciting way to liven up your next party, it's time to place your photo prop order with Isabel!
