For kids parties you have many options with entertainment, but for an adult special event or wedding, entertainment choices are fairly limited. For my Fabulous “White Hot” 40th Birthday party I wanted to do something special so my guests (and I) would be able to remember it for years to come. Entertainment, decor & party favors all wrapped into one – you just can’t go wrong with a photo booth!
Let me go over all the reasons why I chose a customized photo booth from Selfiebox for my special occasion…
(1) Photo Booths Have Universal Appeal
Whether your party is a 40th Birthday like mine or a corporate event, wedding, kids party, adult night or other occasion, a photo booth has universal appeal for all ages. Adults & kids alike love getting dressed up in silly attire and posing for the camera (this is something that just never gets old).
(2) Photos Make Excellent, Long Lasting Memories
As the saying goes, a picture can say a thousand words. Memories start to fade, but photos can potentially last forever and help you remember your special event for years to come.
Super Note: My party was held outdoors, from sunset into the late evening, on the 63rd floor of the rooftop bar 1-Altitude. As such, the lighting was fairly limited and made it difficult to get good pictures. Since the Selfiebox photo booth had professional studio lighting and a DSLR camera, the photo booth pictures came out looking great, even the ones that were taken late at night.
(3) Photo Booths Can Double As Entertainment
There is never a dull moment with a photo booth. With so many different poses, props and sayings, party guests can keep themselves entertained on their own and keep going back for more.
(4) Custom Photo Booth Backdrops Make A Statement
Having a massive custom backdrop with your party theme, corporate logo, or whatever you desire is the perfect way to make sure your theme is known. Even without the unlimited photos & props, the backdrop alone just makes a statement and really helps your party stand out from the rest.
Super Note: As people entered the my party they were greeted by a 2m x 2m backdrop with my custom party logo. Since the backdrop was my own logo (and not some generic design), it set the scene for the party right from the start.
(5) Custom Props Allow You to Set the Party Mood
No party is created equal. Every party has it’s own unique style & theme and what may work for one party, may be completely different for another. In addition to the variety of in-house props, I loved that Selfiebox was able to design custom props with special “40th” birthday sayings, all in hot pink, black & white for my party theme!
Super Note: Once the party was over I got to keep my Selfiebox custom backdrop and custom props. Now I am not turning 40 ever again, but I did pass on the photo booth props to a friend who has a birthday coming up soon (and she was super happy).
(6) Photobooths Are Great Ice-Breakers
Not everyone is a social butterfly. Sometimes guests need an extra push to make some new friends or meet that special someone at a party. A photo booth picture, with funky costumes and creative props, allow people to get a bit silly and loosen the mood.
(7) “Unlimited” Prints & Poses Allow For Multiple Party Souvenirs
People don’t normally throw away pictures (especially if they are in it). My Selfiebox photo booth included UNLIMITED prints & poses.
This meant that guests could take as many shots as they liked and have an actual printed picture to take home. Definitely a great way to make sure your guests remember your special event.
Super Note: The pictures were printed at high speed and came almost instantaneously. And since I had the unlimited prints package, every guest in the picture was able to get a copy of the print to take home.
(8) A Special Custom Photo Template to Fit Your Party Personality
A photo booth is not only about the pose, but also the final photo presentation at the end. My Selfiebox photo booth came with a custom photo frame and template specially designed to match my glitz & glam fabulous theme.
Super Note: You can come up with unique template printouts that are exclusive to your event. There are many layouts to choose from; you can choose to have your print vertical or horizontal and the number of pictures per print. You also have the option to choose the size of of the picture, either 4R (4×6), photostrips (2×6) or note cards (2 x 3).
(9) Photobooths Are Relatively Stress-Free
My photo booth experience was stress-free. The set-up, professional lighting, pictures and prints were all handled onsite by the Selfiebox team. Since Selfiebox handled everything (without me having to micro-manage), as the host I was able to actually enjoy my party and take a bunch of fun pictures of my own.
(10) A Digital Photo Book of Memories
As the host, you get to keep a digital copy of all the photo booth pictures!! Which is AWESOME – because now you get to see all the creative poses and also have an album full of memories to keep to yourself or share on FB, Instagram or use as blackmail at a later date (LOL, just kidding).

SuperMommy’s Party Opinion
My guests all had a fabulous time at my 40th Birthday party (and are still talking about it weeks after). In addition to a great theme, venue, drinks & food, having the photo booth made my event a bit more “special” and not just your normal birthday party at a rooftop bar.
I loved the fact that everything about the Selfiebox photo booth was CUSTOMIZED to my party theme – the backdrop, props & photo template were all in my party logo and colors – absolutely LOVED IT!
Having unlimited poses and prints, also meant that the guests could each get a copy of their picture as a party favor for them to remember the fun night. I also liked the fact that I received digital copies of all the photos that were taken in the photo booth at the party. I could tell as the night went on that my guests were starting to loosen up a bit and the pictures started to became a bit more “fun”. 😉
Overall, I felt the Selfiebox staff was very professional and helpful both pre-party and during the party. Since the photobooth was right at the entrance of the party, the Selfiebox staff not only handled all their photobooth responsibilities, but also greeted my guests with a big smile as they entered. They also helped my guests put on their personalized party tattoo (not their job scope, but they went above & beyond to help me – which I totally appreciated).
If you have a special event coming up and are looking for something “more”, I definitely recommend checking out Selfiebox for their photo booth and other party services. I personally plan on using them again in the future.
Good Luck Party Planning & Best Wishes on Your Own Fabulous Event!
