Hot Air Balloon Baby Shower Invitations

For those thinking of making an invitation, start off making some circle shape on a nice patterned cardstock paper to resemble a balloon and beneath it a basket shape. Cut it out and paste this cutout on another piece of paper that will make up the invitation. This way your invitations speak for themselves: We are having a Hot Air Balloon theme baby shower hooray!


Hot Air Balloon Baby Shower Decorations

If your theme revolves around pastels there are soft rainbow pastel colored balloons. You can still keep the background decorations and covers such as table covers white or very light blue as this would resemble clouds or the sky. You could also use white balloons to resemble clouds around the main dessert table.


One of my favorite decorations I have seen that I think would work perfectly for this theme are ‘upholstered’ helium balloons. You can use tulle or any thin decorative fabric to upholster the balloons.
