Displaying Photos for a Special Event~
My oldest grandson recently graduated high school. His parents were giving him a graduation party. I wanted to help with the decorations. As is my mode of operation, I visited Pinterest for photo display ideas. That site had a lot of ideas. One that caught my eye was displaying streamers of photos on a staircase. I decided that was the display for me as my son and daughter-in-law's home had a staircase that would be accessible to all the guests to the party.
I wanted lifetime and school representations for Ryan. I went through my photo file on my computer and chose the ones I wanted and started printing them. I chose ribbons in his school colors and matted the photos on silver card stock. I printed each photo out in the 5x7 size. I wanted them big enough for all to see.
I also printed up some appropriate graduation and inspiration quotes. I liked how it came out, and I got a lot of compliments on it. This display wasn't my idea. I copied someone else's wonderful idea. I just share with you as you might want to do this as well.
Display photos on a poster board and place on an easel~
When surfing through Pinterest, I also saw some photo displays posted on an easel. Since I am the owner of an easel which we use for playing games with a big group, such as "Pictionary" or "Win, Lose, and Draw," I knew that would also work for a display. My grandson is going to Texas A&M, so my daughter-in-law asked me to save all the photos I had of Ryan in an Aggie shirt or cap. She considered making a presentation of the pictures too. I told her I had an easel that was perfect. I had fun creating that one too! Just another idea I share with you that you might be able to use for a milestone birthday or anniversary.
The sharing of ideas~
I'm all about sharing any ideas I find as I surf the web. Perhaps by my sharing, you might think of something you might do. Especially if you have a big celebration coming up. This idea could be used for a birthday party, a graduation party like I did, an anniversary, a milestone birthday like 75, 80 or 85. It could be used for a retirement party, a child's birthday party, and even a wedding or rehearsal dinner.
I've posted links below for other great exhibit ideas. Photos can be displayed in a hoola hoop, a large embroidery hoop, on a wooden pallet, or simply posted on a wall in the shape of the birthday or anniversary number. I've even seen them attached to helium-filled balloons.
I hope I've shared some ideas that you can use. You can simply google for ideas. I noticed there are even websites that will create the display board for you. All you have to do is send in the photos. I'm guessing the printing and copy businesses in your hometown will even do it. It's just an idea that can make that graduation or anniversary party really special.
