NYC Bee Party – DIY Photobooth


This past weekend we had a Weddingbee party at my NYC apartment!  Here is a little sneak peek at some of the DIY photobooth pictures!


I spy Mrs. Toucan as an evil king, Mrs. Cupcake as a clown, and Mrs. Avocado as a bachelorette/bride!


The Stars, Mrs. Candy Corn, and the Sushis.  Mr. Star looks remarkably like Mr. Swan!


Mr. Penguin and Mr. Toucan drinking beers and wearing sombreros.  The amount of alcohol consumed at this party was truly obscene!


Weddingbee PRO Kim/SIL Cupcake who helped throw this whole soiree together!


Anne from Perfect Bound and her hubby


Some of the Bee Men!


Quiche looking saucy


Mr. Candy Corn as a bear king.


The Taffys


Mrs. Toucan, Dahlia, and Canary


The Penguins!


Mrs. Quiche, Swan, D’orsay, Cupcake, Candy Corn and Sushi


Weddingbee PRO Cyd from Bella Figura and her friend


Mrs. Butterfly, Ant, and Martini


You can spot most of the bees that attended in this pic!  Quiche, D’orsay, Canary, Pinot Noir, Taffy, Dahlia, Peony, Margarita, Bluebell, Toucan, Onion, Sushi, me, Swan, Cupcake, Penguin and Candy Corn.  Bee galore!


To set up this photobooth, I purchased the following:

  • Remote release for my Canon xti Rebel ($20)
  • Tripod
  • Fabric from Purl Soho
  • Props: mini chalkboard, chalk, pitchfork, veil, bachelorette tiaras, big diamond ring, garter, clown wig, clown nose, chicken/bear/cat/cow noses, pirate’s sword/eye patch/earring, crown, gangster hat, witch hat, sombreros, feather boa, oversized sunglasses
  • DIY props – Bee handbands and Bee shutter shades
October is a great time to raid party supply stores for the best costume inventory, or you may want to wait until the after Halloween sales.  DIY photobooths are inexpensive, easy, and always a hit!  I think I’m going to have one at every party I throw from now on. :)

Stay tuned for lots more party pics to come!
