Planning the Best Quinceañera Ever!

Planning the Best Quinceañera Ever!

quinceanera cakeWhether you know it as a quinceañera, quince años, fiesta de quince años, or simply quince, planning a party for your daughter can be tough. This birthday is important – it’s the one where your daughter transitions to becoming a young adult, and you want to make sure the party is memorable.

So what does it take? We’ve compiled some great ideas to make your daughter’s quinceañera one to never forget (and protect your wallet)!

Use balloons instead of flowers

Fresh flowers, while nice, are extremely expensive and take a large coordinating effort to ensure everything looks good at the exact moment. Instead, spring for some balloons – they’re cheaper and just as colorful! There are a ton of great craft ideas for creating centerpieces with balloons instead of flowers. And even if you do go with balloons instead of flowers, you can still get some flowers for certain arraignments like on the main table or around certain decorations.

Get multiple small cakes instead of a big cake

A big cake is beautiful, but not always practical (or cheap). Plus, getting a few smaller cakes also helps by allowing for multiple flavors to cater to guests. And if you really want to make it a family event, you can also coordinate with relatives and friends to bake their favorite cake and bring it to share – that way everyone can try the favorite recipe of others!

Find a unique quinceañera venue

Instead of renting a ballroom at the local hotel or meeting space at a fancy restaurant, look for a venue that is unique and may not come with the hefty price tag. Venues such as a family member’s for friend’s home, a state beach, part, or historical site are some great ideas. And even places like a local VFW or Elk’s Lodge have spaces large enough to host a fun party. While the location may be important to some, it’s how you decorate it and the memories you make while there that are more important!

Bundle your DJ and photo booth

If you decide to hire a DJ and want a photographer to capture the event, why not see if you can bundle them together? Sometimes a DJ and photographer work together which will help reduce the cost of the event. Or, if you prefer, you can always create your own playlist of music and hire a quinceañera photo booth to keep costs low.

Whatever you decide to do, make sure the quinceañera is the best possible party for your daughter – remember, she only gets one in her lifetime!

Are you ready to make your daughter’s San Diego Quinceañera an event she’ll love forever? Call us at (619) 663-4749 or fill out the contact us form and we’ll get back to you as quickly as possible!

Make Your Corporate Holiday Party Even Better!

Make Your Corporate Holiday Party Even Better!

holiday party photo boothIt’s that time of year again – the sun is shining, the weather is perfect, a beach day followed by a night on the town. No, this isn’t summertime, it’s winter here in Southern California and it’s time for some great holiday fun!

And along with the holiday season come company holiday parties, usually the biggest corporate party the company will host all year long. It’s a time of cheer, great food and drinks, and even an inspirational speech for the upcoming year.

Every year in San Diego, companies of all sizes try to outdo the previous year’s party and come up with some crazy ideas. The company wants to reward their hardworking employees with a great party and the last thing they want to have happen is for the party to be a total letdown.

That’s where a company holiday party photo booth rental will come in and help! Whether it’s a theme party, black tie gala, or even a dance party, a photo booth rental will definitely add that something extra to the holiday party and make it one to remember!

And one way to help make the night even more memorable is to give employees something to take home with them – a photo strip is a great way to remember the night. Have employees focus on the fun of the night, no need for personal cameras or a photographer running around, with a photo booth, everyone can make the event personal and a way they want to remember it. With great props and printed photo strips, employees can remember the night all year long!

That is why iPix Photo Booths offers the Basic Booth, an open air style photo booth rental in San Diego that allows for large groups to get in front of the camera at once. With unique props and backgrounds, employees will never want to leave the company holiday party. And once the photos are taken, they are stored digitally for access later and strips are printed immediately. We also offer social media integration – you can input your Facebook or Twitter profile and post the photos directly to your friends and followers! How cool is that?!?

The excitement of a photo booth is a great addition – the laughing and enjoyment of employees is well worth the price! There is nothing like taking awesome photos to liven up the party. Check out the photo booth rental package that works for you and give your employees a night to remember.

Photos in the Digital Age

Photos in the Digital Age

cell phone pictureThe digital age has revolutionized the way we take photographs. Before the invention of digital cameras and camera phones, using film cameras and taking the film in to be developed was a common occurrence. Not only that, but we were more judicial about the photos we were taking. However, now that we can instantly see the photos we take, we are quick to delete and retake photos over and over again. Before you know it, you’re taking hundreds of pictures without even thinking about the process.

While there is an inherent benefit in taking multiple photos to get the best pose, when was the last time you had those photos printed out? If you think about it, everything is stored on your computer or online on social media websites. And even though you’re able to save all these photos, there are two problems with this photo overload: 1) there is no guarantee that digital photos will be around forever due to computer crash or misplacement, and 2) we’ve become so comfortable with the idea of taking hundreds of photos that we no longer take the time to go through and enjoy past memories the photos impart.

When we upload photos from a digital camera, we upload hundreds, even thousands, of photos at a time. When was the last time you sat down and organized these photos? Most of the time we group them in batches and say we’ll go back later, yet that rarely happens. Plus, by not organizing them right away, we often forget where we place them or what the photos are even of. Plus, while technology has made storing digital files much easier, those files may get lost if the computer is damaged, lost, or crashes after years of use.

classic cameraAnd while we upload our best photos to social media, when was the last time you went through and looked at what was actually posted? Going through and enjoying the photos can bring back memories of those great times. No longer are photos for ourselves to enjoy, but there for us to brag and show others what we’re doing. Social media is just an easier way to shove our vacation photos down our friends throats like we used to do with slideshows at home. While that may be fun, our photos should be for ourselves – posting them to social media isn’t doing them justice, but there are a few things that can be done to reverse this trend and bring photos back to their glory days.

Print What You Put on Social Media

When you post your vacation photos to social media, take the time to print off your favorite photos from that group – it may be one, it may be all of them, but having hard copies of these in a book will allow for a better appreciation of the memories. Plus, chances are if you’re sharing photos with others, these are the photos you want to have and see in the future. This is a simple way of forcing yourself to have some printed photos on hand and your future self will thank you.

Stop at Photo Booths

Whether you’re out and about at a party, on the boardwalk, or at the mall, take a few minutes and stop by a photo booth to take some fun, candid shots. The instant gratification of an instant printout makes for a spontaneous and memorable moment with your friends and loved ones. We’ve seen some people develop a whole book dedicated to just photo booth pictures. And if you make this a regular occurrence, you’ll be amazed at how you and those you take the photo booth photos with change over the years. So the next time you see a wedding photo booth, hope on in and get started on your collection.

Delete, Delete, Delete!

While we’re arguing digital photos are hindering our ability to enjoy photos, we do believe that keeping bad photos – either ones with our eyes closed, out of focus photos, or just dumb photos – is a waste of space and time. It is shocking to see how many photos people hang onto because they don’t want to commit to the deletion process. We take so many photos, yet we don’t want to get rid of any of them, especially the bad ones. Take the time, even right after a photo is taken, to delete the ones that you don’t like. It will save you storage space on your computer and will make filing the photos that much easier.

Doing these few simple steps can help bring photos back to what they were meant to be. While having the ability to save all your photos on your computer is a huge benefit, having a photograph in your hand or framed, hanging on the wall really gives meaning to that photo. It is amazing the difference a simple photo album can do when telling the story of your life. That’s why we offer a photo booth scrapbook to our clients – so they can keep the precious memories of their special day for the rest of their lives.
