This is part of sponsored campaign held by MomSelect and HP. I received HP Products and financial compensation to share about my results using HP Social Media Snapshots!
After 13 years of hosting birthday parties, holiday gatherings, playgroup events, sports functions… I feel like I’ve finally got the hang of this stuff. When October comes around it’s on like Donkey Kong: Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years and birthdays in between.. it’s party season!
The thing, my budget doesn’t exactly allow for the over-the-top Pinterest parties that I dream about, so we are always on the lookout for frugal ways to DIY it. So this week when we threw the Halloween party for our playgroup I decided to work with HP to put together a little DIY selfie station.
The premise was simple. We stocked a table with the HP Envy Printer + Social Media Snapshot papers, props and an iPad that was wirelessly connected to the printer. Parents and kids alike could take selfies to their heart’s content and print them right there on the spot.
It was a hit with the parents and the kids loved taking selfies. I think my teenager was probably the biggest fan of the setup, though.
Attendees could also synch their own phones wirelessly to the printer and print off any of their favorite moments from the party and take them home. If you’re like me you take tons of pictures and then never do anything with them! Can you relate to that?
With this printing station you get your pictures nearly instantly– no trips to the store and no memory taken up on your phone.
