What a sweet party! I especially love the darling Hot Air Balloon printables; they’re too cute! I also adore the fabulous sugar cookies and chocolate covered Oreo’s. This baby shower is so cute and whimsical and is full of ideas that would not only work for a baby shower, but a first birthday party as well.
The Hot Air Balloon party ideas and elements that I like most from this adorable baby shower event are:
- The cute and simple backdrop with hanging felt clouds
- The darling pastel “baby” pennant banner
- The cute hot air balloon and cloud sugar cookies
- The cute hot air balloon and cloud chocolate covered Oreos’s
- The cute labels
- and MORE!

Hot Air Balloon Baby Shower Details:This is what Donna said about planning the party-
“I’ve always had a “thing” for hot air balloons. Just something about them that’s awesome: quiet but loud, peaceful and majestic, and the colors! Your imagination in the limit! With this party, I wanted to match the removable fabric wall art (vinyl) and show moms and moms-to-be how cute it would be to host a baby shower using the same wall decor that you would then re-use in the baby’s nursery.
The baby shower was focused on a few key elements: hot air balloons in pastel pinks, blues and greens, fluffy clouds, and items that could be re-used in a baby’s room: the wall art, the baby bunting, the fluffy clouds, and the wire-art “Baby” letters (tutorial coming soon
to my blog).
I had wonderful food contributors to this party including whimsical sugar cookies shaped like clouds and hot air balloons, chocolate covered oreos (again with clouds and hot air balloons), cloud-themed cake pops, and even a hot air balloon shaped cake!
I added to the color theme by using favor boxes and glass bottles from Kate Aspen. The pinwheel boxes added to the whimsy feel I was going for. Throw in some colorful jelly bellies, Mike and Ikes, and gumballs in the plastic bottles and the colorful straws in pink lemonade
from Hoopla Events.
I couldn’t resist ordering matching cupcakes with a delicious strawberry flavor from Busy Bee Cupcakery.
The fabric baby banner and the fluffy clouds were the PERFECT addition to the party. Both are then used in the babies nursery and a wonderful momento from a special day celebrating the mom-to-be.
Last but not least, the whole table came together because of the ruffled tablecloth from Cupcake with Character. I love the whimsical eel of something that most people wouldn’t give a second thought to. But a good quality table cover can go a long way to pulling your table together”.
