Ding, Dong Merrily-on-high…that’s rights, it’s that time of year. As 2013 draws to a close, December often marks the start of the festive party season as people, offices, family and friends look to celebrate in style.
The festive season is one of the most popular times for parties, weddings and events and it’s easy to see why. The air tends to be that little more jolly and homes and offices that tad more colourful.
The number of occasions – Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Year’s and New Year’s Eve (not to mention birthdays, weddings and anniversaries) – are simply begging to be celebrated and, let’s be honest, it would be rude not too!
With so many reasons to celebrate (and a few too many cherries), remembering those special moments can prove tricky. In association with Picture Blast, the UK’s leading photo booth hire specialists, we present some simple, unique and exciting ways you can capture every moment and relive those festive memories for years to come – no matter what the occasion!
Hand Out Disposable Cameras
Here is a great site with all you need to know about making them more individual and pretty : The Knotty Bride
A cheap, simple and hilarious way to relive the magic of a Christmas party; why not hand out disposable cameras to each of your guests and let the morning after tell the tale when you have collected them in? Whilst disposable cameras may lack the ‘high definition’ of their digital counterparts, the photo-bombs, selfies and funny faces will have you laughing for many Christmases to come.
Call In The Professionals
Suited for weddings and office parties, calling in a professional photographer will ensure that you look good from every angle. Whether you want to be snapped at the start of the day, the start of the night or the bits in between, a professional photographer can set up the perfect backdrop to help capture your festive moments in all their glory.
Hire a Photo booth
A great addition to any party, a photo booth means that you don’t have to worry about taking snaps yourself. With the ability to customise snaps, add logos and images as well as personal messages and prints, you can create a catalogue of memories to cherish. With print-outs, album binds, instant social sharing and DVD’s, why not try something new this festive season?
Lights, Camera, Action…
Make your event even more personal with video messaging, playback and filming to watch those hilarious moments, tearful speeches and drunken accidents over and over again. Perfect for family moments, office parties and festive fancy dress, all that’s left to do is sit back and let the memories happen.
However you end up celebrating over the festive party season, with our tips, all that’s left to do is make those final preparations, send out those final invites and make sure your 2013 goes out in style…Remember, you can always delete those embarrassing photos!
