Photo booths are the one trend that I don’t think I’ll ever grow tired of. I’m pretty much of the mindset that every party needs one. Goofy pictures + goofy props = goofy good memories.
And I’m totally down with that.
The biggest party day in Louisville is right around the corner (that’s Derby Day for my non-local readers), so I’ve created a couple of additional photo props you can add to your mustaches-on-sticks: A mint julep cup and a derby hat. Because, right? No Kentucky Derby party is complete without these.
