(1) I hung my grandma's vintage tablecloth that she always used at formal affairs from a tree (yes, there are a couple holes and a stain here and there, but it reminds me of her and I thought it added to the whole look I was going for...and really to be honest they are not in the center were the photos are being taken), (2) added my vintage coatrack and mirror; and (3) added some vintage accesories - that's it!
Some of the accessories I added I found rummaging through my Great Aunt Millie's steamer trunk! The sailor hats, faux fur hat and faux fur wrap were perfect additions I thought. I also added some vintage gold and crystal necklaces for a glam look, and two aprons, one that tied around the waist and an adorable one that you pull over your head!
And we know how popular mustaches are these days...but the one question I keep asking myself is why do they all have to be black and all the same style? Is everyone's mustache black? I have blonde hair...I don't want a black mustache! So I grabbed a couple different old style mustaches (and a pair of lips) from Photoshop, printed them out on cardstock, cut them out and then traced them onto pages in a vintage book, cut them out and adhered to sticks...the overall look cohesive and something that's still the same, but different (as Mr. Big would say...Kristi style)!
Using a tablecloth is a quick and easy solution for a photo booth backdrop. There are so many sytles and colors out there that the options are endless!Proof that you can do an inexpensive (I spent $0 on this one), custom photo booth that is not only just right for your theme/style, but just right for you!
