Summer is in full swing and it’s time to party! And you can’t have a party without an awesome photo booth. Hey everyone! It’s Kara from A Kailo Chic Life, and I can’t wait to share my ideas on how to throw the best Hawaiian summer party. JOANN Fabric and Craft Stores not only have all the essentials for creating your own Hawaiian party, but they also have a new line of photo booth props and frames (available in-stores) that make customizing your own party photo booth a breeze!
I was inspired to throw a sophisticated black, white, and pink Hawaiian themed party after seeing this amazing black and white Nate Berkus print at JOANN Stores. I used 2 yards of the fabric as a backdrop for my photo booth and another yard for my table cloth (just hem all the sides for a quick table cloth).
For the table setting, I used a few pink plates I own and topped them with faux bird of paradise leaves and flowers from the JOANN floral department. I also picked up two of the white flameless candle pineapple lanterns (available in-stores) to flank the table and bring in a little mood lighting. I completed the look with a few white tea light candles and vase filled with more faux flowers from The Bloom Room at JOANN Stores and chalkboard sign from the new photo booth prop line available in stores.
Now on to the best part of any party, the photo booth! As I mentioned, for this photo booth I used the black and white Nate Berkus fabric for the backdrop, then topped the fabric with letters (I spelled ”SMILE”) from the photo prop line and a few faux flowers and tropical leaves.
But no photo booth is complete without the props. To keep with the Hawaiian theme, I used faux flowers to create a flower crown, used a chalkboard pen and one of the chalkboard photo props to create an Aloha sign, and hot glued more flowers and a palm leaf to one of the photo booth prop frames.
A few other accessories like a gold glitter heart and straw fedora were the perfect finishing touches. My kids sure enjoyed getting their photo taken in the photo booth with all the props!
And I may have even gotten in on the action!
Overall the party was a success and the ready to be customized photo props and fabric backdrop made the party simple and quick to set up.
I hope you enjoyed all the details on how to throw your own stylish Hawaiian summer party complete with a photo booth. For more summer party ideas, check out my geometric floral summer party.
