Party Recap

I wanted a theme that was ‘simple and sweet in nature’ and had a traditional feel. I also wanted to choose something that my son loved, so after a trip to a friends party where he couldn’t stop laughing at the balloons, I knew that would make the perfect theme!

The entire party was based from the invite design creating using big round balloons and a ticking stripe pattern.
For party decorations, I found 36? balloons in our exact colors, which were used behind the food/dessert table, and throughout the party as well as paper circles we displayed like balloons! I used a blue and white yarn as the balloon strings and in many of the design elements. To create cupcake toppers that coordinated with the invitation and had a handmade feel, I used paper craft circles (cut with a craft punch), double sided tape, and yarn, to create ‘balloon bunch toppers‘ that coordinated with the invitation.
My favorite aspect of the party was the mini banners that were strung above the food table between the balloons and on his high chair. They were printable banners that I designed to be a little larger than playing cards and strung together with yarn.
I made the cakes, which were topped by fondant circles made by Two Sugar Babies and icing was used for the ‘strings.’ We also had large balloon cookies on sticks made by Bees Knees Creative, ‘circles of air‘ {a.k.a. Kix cereal} in paper snack cups for the little ones, and mini sugar cookies made by Better Bit Of Butter, who also used the invitation style to design the cookies!
For a game, we played pin the string on the balloon and the kids each got a balloon cookie and punching balloon for a favor!
