The summer heat is well under way in Austin, and before you know it, it'll be July, and we'll be right in the thick of it. What better way to beat the heat than to throw a Christmas in July party? That's something your Austin mobile photo booth would love to be a part of! Here are five great ideas to have a fabulous, festive event.
Set the mood with your décor – There are so many fun ways to decorate for a Christmas in July party! Hang a round pool flotation device on your door in place of a wreath. Decorate palm trees (real or faux) with Christmas lights and colored balls. Paint white stripes on red pool noodles, then thread some stiff wire through them and bend the tops over like candy canes. Use moldable sand to make non-melting snowmen. Adorn tiki torches with red velvet bows and pine garland.
Favorite foods – Mix things up by serving summertime favorites, like hot dogs and lemonade, alongside peppermint bark and a snowman-shaped cheese ball. For a fun and delicious seasonal mash-up, serve up frozen hot chocolate or eggnog milkshakes. And you really can't go wrong with adorable melted snowman cookies – frost sugar cookies with white icing and place a regular-sized marshmallow near one edge. Use frosting or pens with edible ink to decorate the marshmallows like snowmen's faces and the rest of the cookies like their melted bodies.
Snap your pics – Great seasonal mash-ups make for great Austin photo booth pictures! Mix reindeer antlers with sunglasses, Santa hats with floral leis, and winter scarves with sun hats. Be sure to ask your Trailer Booth Photography attendant to hook your rockin' mix of holiday favorites and summertime hits (think the Beach Boys or Miley Cyrus's “Party in the USA”) up to the trailer's sound system to keep your guests in the mood!
Beach ornament favors – Keep the great mash-up going all the way to the end of the party when you hand out your guests' party favors! How simple and easy is this? Take clear glass or plastic Christmas ornaments and fill them with sand and tiny seashells. Be sure to put the tops back on when you're finished. Everyone will have a little bit of summer fun to take with them and hang on their trees when it actually is Christmastime!
