The Starry Night Theme is a very popular theme for dinner & dance events. Inspired by Van Gogh’s famous Starry Night painting, the theme consists of glowing lights and a predominantly dim interior.

In this case, the Light Painting Photo Booth is highly recommended to go with your Starry Night Theme. Your guests will be able to have fun with interactive light paintings, making each photo they take an art piece with their own personal touch. This is definitely a souvenir they will appreciate.
Back to School Theme
If you are looking for a more fun and boisterous theme, the Back to School Theme is perfect for your dinner & dance. Your guests will dress up in their secondary school uniforms which will be a trip down memory lane for all of them. Finding out each other’s schools in the past could be the best conversation starter for your guests during the event. The theme could include thrilling games and skits to entertain your guests all through the night.
As seen in the photo above, the design of the photo layout has been customised to match your event theme. Props can even be added to spice up the photos! Therefore, an Instant Photo Booth is a must-have for your Back to School dinner & dance.
A dinner & dance with a Movie Theme will definitely be an event that many of your guests will look forward to. Getting to dress up as their favourite movie character, Disney character or superhero, will definitely hype them up. There are also plenty of games and quizzes to be played during the event. A best dressed competition can even be introduced to encourage guests to take their Movie Theme outfit up a notch!
The Trick-eye Photo Booth will be perfect to go with your Movie Themed dinner & dance. With a wide range of different backdrops available, you will be spoilt for choice when customising your photo booth. The results of the photo booth shots will definitely leave your guests jaw-dropped!

The Halloween holiday is notorious for having some of the most creative and bizarre costumes. With a dimly lit interior and spooky decor, this will definitely be a dinner & dance event like no other!
An alternative to the photo booth will be an Instant Roving Photographer. Being the most versatile instant photo service you can acquire, a roving photographer will approach your guests for group photos, making sure that everyone leaves with an instant print photo!

As the saying goes, “less is more”, the Vacation Theme will be perfect for a year end dinner & dance! With a more laid back theme, you guests are sure to enjoy a relaxing night over some bonding over games and conversations all throughout the event. Simple, yet memorable!
Around the World Theme
The Around the World Theme has a similar vibe to the Vacation Theme, but with a twist. Much like when we celebrate Racial Harmony Day, your guests will have to show up in traditional costumes from the different ethnicities and races. This will definitely be a great conversation starter between many of your guests. Many different games and food can be introduced in line with the theme.
If you have decided on the Vacation Theme or the Around the World Theme, there is no better fit for your event than a Green Screen Photo Booth. With a wide selection of customisable backgrounds, your guests will be able to teleport themselves to any holiday destination in the world! These will definitely go perfectly with the outfits they are wearing.
A very popular dinner & dance theme is the Superhero Theme. Regardless of age or gender, everyone has a favourite Superhero! Your guests will have no problem thinking of an outfit to wear to your event. Quizzes and games can be played to test your guests’ Superhero knowledge.

The Great Gatsby Theme
In all its gold glamour, the Great Gatsby Theme is just another excuse for you guests to dress their best for the night. Taking inspiration from the award winning movie, The Great Gatsby, this theme follows closely with the decadent style of the dinner & dance scenes of the movie. Dressed in stylish tuxedos and eye-catching dresses, this dance & dinner will definitely be one to remember for you and your guests!
If you are planning for something more unique and unconventional, the Nautical Theme is an idea you can take inspiration from. Based on a sailor theme, your guests can either show up as a cabin crew or pirates! This will definitely create buzz between your guests all throughout the night. As seen in the photo, the decor can be closely inspired by sail boats and ships.
Take your guests on a time-capsule back to the past with the Retrolicious Theme. Leather jackets, high-waisted flared trousers and feathers for scarfs, this will be a major throwback for your guests! The dinner can be accompanied by throwback 80s and 90s music, along with some childhood games. It will be a night to remember for your guests!
Eco-friendly Photo Booth Idea for Dinner & Dance
Instant Photo Booth in the past have always been based on instant photo printing which can generate up to 1500 paper prints for a 4 hour dinner event. Our team have been actively looking for more sustainable alternatives, and the latest addition is our Instant QR Photo Booth.
How the new Instant QR Photo Booth differentiates from the Email Photo Booth that existed for a long time is the focus on ease of use and privacy.
Your guests no longer have to enter their email, there is no data collection.
All is takes is a scan of the QR code, which is available near instantly after a photo is taken. QR code scanning is available as a standard on virtually all modern smartphones.
What sets our Instant QR Photo Booth apart is the focus on speed. While some Digital Photo Booth uses 1 screen for the photo taking, email and QR code, we use a separate tablet device for viewing and downloading images. Allowing the photographer to engage the next group of guests while the existing group is downloading their images.
