birthday love

my new camera’s first foray into the real world happened this past weekend at my 27th birthday party. my sweet friend rose decided to throw me a party just a few days before, and despite the short notice it turned out perfect. i decided at the last minute (literally, the day before the party) that i wanted to set up a photo booth. i have been loving this trend lately. a few of my favorite examples are from blair’s wedding, mr. humperdink’s (he’s a cat by the way) birthday party, and cady’s wedding. let’s face it though, i don’t plan on getting married anytime soon, so i decided to go the mr. humperdink route and get in my photo booth fix at a birthday party.

on friday night, rose and i set out to michaels to buy the supplies: scapbook paper (14 cents on clearance, yes please) and raffia for the bunting, foam sheets and dowel rods for the funny accessories, a chalkboard, and a bubble gun. on saturday we hit the nashville flea market in search of project supplies for me (coming soon!) and we found a great wooden frame that i slapped some purple paint on an hour before the party. we added a white sheet backdrop and a cool old bench and we were photo booth ready!

i wasn’t totally happy with the way the pictures turned out quality-wise, but i’ll chalk that up to lack of experience and poor lighting. i do love the festiveness and the beautiful people in them. this girl has a wonderful group of friends. here are a few of my favorites of the night.
