A few weeks back I made a video about how I preserve my parties- one being a fan favorite, the PARTY FRAMES. I have chatted about them a bit HERE if they are new for you! The day I posted about them, someone from the Studio 5 KSL team reached out to me to do a segment with Brooke Walker. I am feeling all the things, humbled, nervous, honored, but mostly SO EXCITED to share my frames with the world.
I started doing these frames, because of the gorgeous invitations that were made for the girls birthday parties and for our House Of Fete shoots. I had a box of past party things I had kept over the years and they really needed their moment. I headed to Social Print Studio to make photo strips. I thought it was a good way to get a little sample of the photos from the party. I added confetti from the party and pressed them between two pieces of glass. If I had other items from the party like stickers, tags, or stamps I added them to the frame to really capture all the elements. I use THESE frames, they are affordable and the perfect size, especially for how many parties we have!
These have become so special in our home. A gallery wall hangs behind our dining room table. I love staring at them and seeing all the hard work captured so beautifully, but the best part, is when the girls look back at them. They remember being celebrated, the different themes we did over the years and their favorite parts about each party.
These are such an easy special way to savor an event, and a modern twist on the shadow box. I created a little guide of what you need to make your own party frames!
You can catch my segment live on Thursday September 15th 11am MST via studio5.ksl.com or on KSL if you are local in Utah. I hope these inspire you to hang your memories on the wall and enjoy them everyday! If you do this and post on Instagram use the #frametheparty so I can see!
These are the frames I will be doing on AIR!
