A cool alternative to the usual goodie bags
Most kids’ party favors are a bust. So we kind of perked up when we heard about FotoFavor, a photo booth company that churns out keepsake snapshots in real time. To get things started, professional shutterbug Rebecca Lorrine Roberts (or one of her three team members) will meet with you to discuss your munchkin’s birthday party theme, invitation graphics, and favorite activities. An hour before the bash begins, she’ll arrive with a custom backdrop and props, incorporating those details. As the kids play on set, Roberts snaps away. Prints are ready by the end of the party; high resolution images are available online within 24 hours. The glossy souvenirs can also include themed graphics and text, if you wish. Prices start around $350 an hour, for a two-hour minimum, and include a disc of all the images.
