Easy Photo Backdrop

At my twins' rainbow party, I made a super quick backdrop so we could take some photo booth style photos with each of their guests.

When each guest arrived, the girls greeted them at the door and then we quickly snapped a photo before they got settled into the party.  People were then free to go back and take more photos later, if they wished, but it was an easy way to make sure that I got a picture of everyone with the birthday girls.

 I positioned the backdrop right in the entryway of our house.  There was plenty of natural light with the front door and its surrounding windows.  This also kept it out of the way of the rest of the party.

I found an extra piece of molding or trim in the garage and hot glued lengths of crepe paper party streamers around it.  We had a nice space between our mudroom and powder bath doorways, so I just rested the piece of trim above the door frames and it hung there nicely.  We added some clusters of bright balloons and we were set.

It would also be easy to add some hanging lanterns or other decorations to the trim piece.  We also had a bucket of props like sunglasses and hats available for guests, but the bright rainbow colors provided plenty of interest for our photos.
