Magpie on Safari

safari 4

Just before Christmas we are throwing a bon voyage party for a family member who is off to Africa! I want to set up a photo booth, safari style, so we can have fun messing around and dressing up and hopefully get some ace pictures of the whole family.

I have been on the look out for anything I can use and you wouldn't believe how much old camouflage nets go for on eBay!

Today I couldn't believe my luck!

The half price rail in the Weston Hospice charity shop!

6 safari hats, one binocular case, two scarves and 7 shirts later I have the basics of the booth! All for £13!

My Mum was thrilled when I phoned her and reminded me, that her husband has a set of binoculars in the garage and we have an old set of my Grandpa's down at the beach hut in Southbourne!

I just need to find a bargain net and we are almost sorted! My Granny's suitcases will make great props too and the bamboo in the garden will make great jungle foliage!

Following my Pinterest board for the Safari send off here!

If you have any other explorer/safari/jungle props ideas let me know! Small boy has a giant stuffed giraffe and elephant but I would be grateful for any suggestions!
