DIY Leaf Garland – Perfect for a Photo Backdrop

Thanksgiving seems like one of the only holidays that doesn’t garner as much picture-taking as the rest.  Easter has the Easter Bunny and the egg hunt, Christmas has Santa and present opening, and even the 4th of July has the requisite flag waving photo ops.  But poor turkey day photos are usually left to chance, with everyone being so busy cooking and eating and all.  So this year, why not create a simple photo-taking area that will urge your dinner guests to snap some photos, and remind you to get plenty of pics of your cute little bundle of joy, whom you are so very thankful for?

    Place a sweet and secure moses basket or bassinet below the garland if your baby isn’t yet sitting, or a comfy chair if your little one feels nice and secure sitting up on his own.

    While they take a few extra minutes to set up, these simple photo booth areas ensure you’ll stop and take a moment to capture special memories. I wish I would have thought of this sooner, since we have many Thanksgivings with not a single photo to show for it.
