I want to say a BIG thank you to my wonderful husband Dave who ran our fabulous vintage photo booth at my family’s ‘Major Milestones’ Party last weekend in Punnetts Town, Sussex. It was great to have the chance to catch up with a lot of special people I hadn’t seen for a long long time! 2014 is a milestone year for many people in my family and the party celebrated a whole lot of them at once including important birthdays..18th, 21st and 100th!!!. A 25th wedding anniversary and the wonderful news that my cousin Beth is now a qualified teacher!
With all the components of a fantastic party…LOTs of food, a keg of beer, plenty of bunting, dancing, music and of course a photobooth! The musical entertainment was provided by the Barn Dance Band ‘Saxon Drain’, who came down all the way from Hampshire to help us all swing our partners and perfect our dosey does!
£500 Raised for Charity
The event also raised money for three amazing charities Mission Aviation Fellowship, Evelina Children’s Hospital and Teen’s Unite who provide great and much needed support to young people with cancer. Thank you to everyone who donated and helped raise the impressive total of £500. Don’t forget all the proceeds of any prints you buy from the Major Milestones Gallery also go to help these charities! (Just go to our Client area and pop in the Gallery ID majormilestones)
I must say I am rather worried about how well those eyebrows suit Dave!!
I love a good Barn Dance!
Dave doing a great job of manning the photobooth!
Not sure I have seen this particular Barn dance move before !!
Just look at the size of that Brie!!!
My entire contribution to the catering was slicing those strawberries!
We even got the barn dance band, Saxon Drain in the Photobooth!!
It was great to catch up with so many people and make some new friends. Thank you to everyone who helped make this an amazing event to remember!!!
We would love to know what you all thought of the photo booth and welcome any ideas of extra items you think we should add to our magical box of props so please feel free to add your comments below.
