Graduation Party at San Marcos Rec Hall
Last Saturday, we had a great time providing a DJ and photo booth for a graduation party, at the San Marcos Rec Hall! The guests had a great time dancing and taking pictures at the photo booth. We loved the custom picture frame prop that they made, in the picture above!
Congrats, again, to Marissa, who will also be starting at Texas A&M in Corpus Christi, this fall! Also, if you're looking for a nice, decent size venue with a really affordable price, check out the San Marcos Rec Hall!
This party was last year, but we decided to add our DIY photo booth frame instructions, due to the enormous amount of interest we've received about their custom photo booth frame! If you want to make your own photo booth frame/props, like the one they made, below, read below! :)
How To Make Your Own Photo Booth Frame/Prop
Foam Board - Be sure to buy a large foam board, from your favorite local craft stores, Walmart, Amazon, or wherever you'd like to buy it from. Hint: If you choose a colored one, such as the black that they chose, above, it saves you time! Choose the size that best suits your needs. A 20" X 30" foam board should work well.
Ruler - Next, you'll need a ruler, to draw on the foam board. You'll want to draw a rectangle, inside the foam board, which will be your photo frame. Make sure it's large enough to allow you to write inside the frame. It should be at least 3-4 inches.
Exacto Blade - Next, you'll need to carefully cut out the rectangle, using an Exacto razor. Take your time, since you want it to be as straight as possible!
Foam Letters- Next, choose the color of letters you want to use to go onto your frame. If your event has certain theme colors, be sure to use similar colors. If it's a graduation party, you can use the school's colors. You can find self-adhesive letters, online, or in a local craft store, that make it a little easier and save you time.
Glue, glitter, scissors, construction paper, markers - Next, you can add anything else onto the frame, such as graduation hat outlines (as pictured above), hearts, or whatever you'd like. Simply use your markers to draw your shapes onto the paper and cut them out. Once you have them cut out, glue them onto the foam board, For the glue, you can use a hot glue gun, or simply use Elmer's glue. Be careful with the hot glue gun, as it may melt the foam. Let the glue set and that's it! Your custom photo booth frame is ready! :)
If all the above is a bit too much for you, and you just don't have the time, be sure to check out our other blog below, which is much easier and you can easily order your own custom photo booth frame prop!

This past weekend, we had a great time providing DJs and photo booths, for several events in the Austin and central Texas area! Saturday, we provided a DJ and photo booth for a teen night, at the Sweetwater Hill Country Community. DJ 2DQ, did a great job playing the top 40 hits that the teens all know and love. David, set up the lawn and giant games, and ran the photo booth, too! Thanks to both of them for doing a great job!
We also provided a photo booth for a fun wedding at Antebellum Oaks, in Austin, TX. Amy kept the guests entertained, taking selfies with our fun props, all evening. We also provided a photo booth for a fun quinceanera, at the Bastrop Convention Center, in Bastrop, TX. Valerie kept the kids and all the guests entertained, taking tons of fun pictures with our unique quinceanera props, all evening, too!
Finally, also on Saturday evening, Jason and Diana provided a DJ for a fun graduation party in Lockhart, Texas. This party was a high school graduation party, as well as a celebration of Savannah's acceptance to Texas State University, in San Marcos, TX. This was a special event, for us, since this party was for one of our very own DJ's daughter. We were honored to be a part of the fun celebration for Jaime, and his daughter Savannah! Congratulations, again, to Savannah!
Overall, we had a great time this weekend; this weekend was the very first time we actually had more photo booth rentals, than DJ events. This was a pivotal moment for us and we couldn't be more excited! Thank you Austin and central Texas!
