A bright and fun background

Your summer photo booth needs to have a bright and fun background. The background could be a wall of metallic shine or a wall of summer flowers. You could also use a green screen to create the perfect beach background even if your summer party is not quite as lucky with the weather and location.


Confetti balloons

You’ll also want to decorate your summer photo booth with confetti balloons. The clear balloons are filled with confetti and when you throw them around it looks fun, adding a bit of action to taking photos. You can also add a small pin next to the booth to allow the guests to pop a balloon for some confetti action!


A flower crown

Your summer photo booth also needs flowers. The best flower-inspired prop is definitely a flower crown, which the guest can play with when taking photos. You should make a few flower crowns, preferably with wild flowers. These will look pretty and add a bit more fun to your photo booth.


A cooling prop

Now, summer parties can get heated and Hudson Valley’s weather can offer plenty of sunshine and warmth. Make your summer photo booth the go-to place in the party by allowing your guests to use it for cooling! This means including beautiful handheld fans as a prop or even adding a wind machine right next to the booth. Not only are guests allowed to cool down, they’ll also have a lot more fun snapping the photos.


Quirky sunglasses

A summer hashtag
