Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths was part of Emma’s Sweet 16 party at Hollidaysburg’s U.S. Hotel Tavern. A masquerade was the theme for the event. Guests arrived wearing masks. If they didn’t have a mask, masks were available to wear for the night.
The U.S. Hotel Tavern provided a splendid display of food that guests were encouraged to eat throughout the night. And We Danced DJ Entertainment provided the birthday girl and guests with an awesome musical selection of hits to pull people onto the dance floor. A conga line was started when Pitbull’s “Fireball” began to play. The guests sang “Happy Birthday” to the 16-year old birthday girl. Cupcakes with various icings and flavors were available for guests to enjoy. Emma thanked everyone with a chocolate gift from Mid’s Candy of Ebensburg.
Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths had guests dancing, laughing, and posing behind their BIG camera. Emma and her parents began the night posing behind the camera followed by a whirlwind of Emma’s friends. Boas, hats, props, glasses, and frames where repeatedly grabbed and discarded as the girls struck a pose behind the camera. Each group would quickly don a prop and pose between pictures. Guests were then gifted with four photos in a border celebrating Emma’s birthday. Later in the evening, guests were dancing around with hats and boas. Take a look at the pictures below to see the awesome time the guests were having!
The history of a Sweet 16 party dates back to a time when a young woman was considered old enough to be presented to society to find a husband. Today, it is a coming of age party when a girl is shifting to young adulthood. There are various traditions that are part of a Sweet 16 party such as the lighting of sixteen candles, father/daughter dance, shoe game, and passing of heirlooms. The one tradition that is carried on at all parties is to blow out the candles on the cake. Just make sure to make a wish and hopefully it will come true!
Thank you Emma for allowing Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths be part of your Sweet 16 celebration!
