This ended up being a very simple program to plan and execute and the only thing I needed to purchase was the balloons for our fantastic photo booth. Around 30 babies attended with about 45 adults and I think it was a really fun bonding experience for everybody. Plus, almost all the babies were dressed up and about half the adults, which made it extra festive!
Photo op! The arch is made from coat hangers, held together with gorilla tape, and decorated with balloons. We own a compressor made just for blowing up balloons, so it only took about 3 hours to make.
Our library has a computer dedicated to taking photos. It uses the Sparkbooth program and an attached photo printer to print photos on demand- it's very popular at programs!
The dance floor
Making corsages (adults were more interested than the kids, which was expected)
Kids and adults loved the dancing (especially all of the shakers and scarves that went along with it)
Bubble machine was on full blast (also a huge hit)
Friend & family groups planned to attend together, which I thought was really fun!
Overall, we had a great time and I think it's definitely worth repeating next summer!
