Last summer, I was thrown a lovely baby shower by my sister with help from family. The theme was more color-based with a pink grapefruit feel and lots of fun beve details including our printed and jumbo balloons. All were hung without using helium which is a great conservation of resources! Above, you see our argyle, chevron and confetti dot prints and jumbo balloons. The printed balloons are 12" balloons, but as you can see, they can be inflated to be larger.
Pink and orange is one of my favorite color combinations and I love how adding in the golden yellow on our chevron straws. This golden yellow can be seen in our balloons too - a golden yellow is a favorite stand alone color for me.. I have two awesome yellow coats to attest to this! Missing washi tape flags and decoration? My shower occurred before beve started having our washi tape made.
Here, my cousin had the great idea of using disposable table cloths to act as fabric to flow into the balloon bouquet to create the focal point in the room above the chair I opened gifts in. Bits of the table clothes were also used to create little pouf decorations on the chairs (which you can see a bit of below in the cake photo).
A cousin took the left over paper straws and made fun marshmallow pops with them. So fun! Also, she filled the containers with sugar to utilize a simple, theme-appropriate and reusable base for the pops. What a great idea!
