Christmas Photo Booth Props for That All-Important Photo Op
Say reind-e-e-e-er everyone! It's time for the highlight of the Christmas party, the indispensable photo that gets posted to social media, shared on instant messaging services, and saved to the cloud for future reference.
With the rise of smartphones, cameras are ubiquitous, and holiday photos occupy a greater role than ever in the celebration. Unless you have pics to mark the occasion, it's almost as though the occasion never happened.
This helps to explain the growing popularity of photo booths, which furnish the subjects of the photo with backdrops, novelty picture frames, decorations, and props like hats and head boppers to set the scene for a stand-out Christmas photo.
We'll delve into the details of these props soon enough. You can purchase them individually and organize them creatively for a truly unique photo op, or you can take the quick, easy, and affordable route of a Christmas photo booth kit. The choice is yours. How creative do you feel?
Essential Props & Decorations of the Christmas Photo Booth
Christmas backdrops & scene setters: These vinyl sheets are printed with wintery scenes of snow flurries, crackling hearths, rows of Christmas trees, and so on. They vary in size from 3 feet to 40 feet across – big enough for your office group photo.
Christmas hats & headbands: Hand out the elf hats and reindeer antlers and just see if anyone in the photo can keep a straight face. It's doubtful.
Christmas photo booth kits: Kits give you a set of props to create a comical group photo for 5 to 7 people. Props can include picture frames, cardstock signs with handles, and cutouts of holiday icons like candy canes and holly.
Life-size photo cutouts: Did you miss your chance to get your picture taken with Santa? You can pose next to a life-size cutout version of Santa, or you can transform into Santa with the cutout of all cutouts – a life-size Santa with face cutout where you can insert your own smug mug.
Novelty Christmas glasses: Oddly enough, some of these Santa, elf, and reindeer sunglasses offer UV protection. Santa may have to start making daytime deliveries.
