A birthday is a celebration for everyone and creates memories to enjoy for years to come. As parents, we put our time and effort into making parties enjoyable for our kids and it would be a shame not to record that in some way. During your party planning have a little think about how you can capture those memories, with photos and videos.
There will be many photo worthy activities at the party, such as blowing out the candles, a cake smash, or pass the parcel. Set the scene so that you get a good backdrop to your photo.
Think about where is the best place to put the birthday cake; the last thing you want is a scruffy wall or bags of wrapping paper in the background distracting from your pic! There are plenty of on-trend photo props you can buy. Search out handpainted numbers, cake toppers, or Pom Pom garlands. Some colourful balloons are a good budget alternative for a backdrop.
After you’ve got your great shots and shared your photos on social media, don’t hide those memories away! Display your fave photo in a special frame. My birthday frames at Alphabet Box are personalised with details such as child’s name and birthdate to make it extra special. The frames include hand painted letters, top quality scrabble tiles, beautiful colourful backgrounds, and embellishments. They can be wall mounted or even simpler, freestanding on a shelf. Those happy memories live on when you can see them everyday. All our products are available to buy on Etsy or via our Facebook page.
We’d love to hear your birthday memories, share them below.
