White Christmas

With a little tenacious thinking, any setting can be transformed into a winter wonderland complete with snow, trees and traditional Christmas scenery.

Begin with a white sheet, blanket or drop cloth to create the illusion of snow. Fashion a snowman out of a cheap white christmas tree and use polystyrene spheres or cotton wool to simulate snowballs.


Include business branding in the backdrop and create happy snaps to send out on Christmas cards to clients. Snappy Photobooths are highly customisable allowing you to brand events or corporate logos onto the prints as part of your Christmas marketing campaign for clients.

Pass the Paper, Please

For affordable home backdrops, consider wrapping paper which comes in an array of gorgeous themed prints. Keep a variety of rolls handy to give people a selection to choose from.

Kissing Booth

A photobooth adorned with mistletoe can be a real ice breaker for those who wish to participate. Located at the entrance to your function, couples can have their picture taken, share it online and retain a memento of the occasion.

Blow-up a Photo

Multi-coloured helium balloons can create a festive and fun atmosphere for any backdrop. Consider using a blue backdrop with a blow up boat for guests to sit in, to give the illusion they are on a lake.

Message Board

A backdrop which is a chalk board can provide an additional way for people to write personalised messages or drawings, to accompany their photos.


Provide multiple options for people to create either Christmas colours or football colours affordably and quickly. They can also fashion bows, hats and outfits from the streamers.
