6 Easy birthday photoshoot ideas

With less than a week left for Vedh’s 3rd birthday, I decided to do a fun photo series – 1 backdrop per day until his birthday. Since I had very little prep time I had to think of something quick and easy. All of these backdrops are perfect for a party or as a photo booth and the best part…they’re super easy to setup.

Paper plates

This vibrant and cheerful paper plates backdrop is definitely a showstopper. One key point for the backdrop to look good is to have lots of colors. I used six and think a few more would have only been better. Check out the post in detail here.

Craft sticks

I wanted the next backdrop to give off some birthday vibes, so I used some multicolored craft sticks to put together this sprinkles backdrop and I think the cupcake piñata that perfectly tied everything together. Check out the post in detail here.
