What’s fun about having kids is you get to play dress up! And us mommies will take advantage of any occasion to throw together some cute photo props to create fun photos! We wanted a retro look inspired by Coca-Cola and the 1950’s for this photo shoot. First I had a lemonade stand that my husband had made for my daughters Vintage Carnival Party and I have used this stand over and over for many events! Plus my husband made it out of an old wood fence so it was free! But fence wood is not costly. I found the born in America sign at Hobby Lobby for $4.96!
This booth would be cute for a 4th of July Party or a retro party. I found the pinwheels a few years ago at Party City. I used poster command tape to stick my pinwheels to the wood. The pom poms and Coca Cola sign were found at Hobby Lobby. I found my Coca Cola crate at a flea market, but you can find them on craigslist. Here is My favorite Retro Slushy Machine
on Amazon. The money is worth it if you have children, during the summer it stays out! I borrowed my Retro popcorn machine but you can also find it on Amazon here. Retro Popcorn Maker
We let the girls have fun, pretending to be a waitresses. Below we had fun with these pom poms. First we had them hanging from fishing line from a tree and then we used on the photo stand. I made an American flag crate My DIY tutorial here that was a perfect fit for toddlers to sit on and the older girls could lean over.
Crate was perfect size for this cutie!
Second photo look for our stand.
I found these Retro Popcorn Boxes on Amazon also for my daughters carnival, I used them as a cupcakes stand and saved them so I can use them for another event.
