The Party Booth

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. What I love most about my job is the people I get to work with.  When I suggested to the ladies organizing Jolly Solo that we do a photobooth for their event, they ran with the idea and then some!

Leah, the designer behind the Golden Goose, immediately came up with suggestions for props and setup. Her enthusiasm is contagious. Mildly put. I only had a boring white background, so I started brainstorming about different things we could do. At one point I think live reindeer were mentioned. Luckily Janna, the other half of Jolly Solo, managed to keep us (somewhat) in check.

 

So I’m now a pretty proud owner of a brand-new, custom made, professional-looking, red & white backdrop, which I think will look perfect for other party booths too! Check it out, what do you think?

Btw, love the Rudolph noses Leah made! And Santa beard. And reindeer antlers. And speech bubbles.  And hats. And glasses. And and and…

Here are the masterminds behind the whole event, Janna and Leah.
Janna and Leah, thank you both so much. I feel lucky to have connected with you. I’m impressed by how you’ve built Jolly Solo from scratch by yourselves. Not only is your enthusiasm and work incredibly admirable, what amazed me on the evening itself is how you’ve attracted a group of like-minded people and offered them a chance to bond and become friends.

And last but not least, while I was editing these I had a little bit of fun with the outtakes :). For more photos, visit Jolly Solo’s gallery on Facebook.

People loved the booth so much, they just had to drop by to have a looksee…

    No no, they're still very much alive and roaming the snowy fields of Norway and Sweden!!! *no reindeer were harmed (or canned) in this process*

It was fabulous because of YOU! The way you set the photobooth up was so fantastic and professional, better than I could have ever imagined. Brilliant team effort ;) Loved every minute of working with you! Hope to do again

For 2012 perhaps have a beer company as sponsor and they may provide reindeer gratis. Love the animations The Savvy Navigator
