First Birthday – Hot Air Balloon Style « previous return to gallery next » A Project For: Gideon Age: 1 Location: Grand Island, Nebraska Description: This was a wonderful outdoor party for a special little boy who turned 1. The main theme of the party was hot air balloons and we incorporated it into many of our decorations. Design Inspiration: My inspiration was Hot Air Balloons. Who doesn't love those? Every party needs balloons and we had a lot of them! Decorating Style: My decoration style is very DIY. The candy cups, lower bunting, hot air balloon lanterns, and photo banner were all hand made. Favorite Items: My favorite item was the candy cup favors. My mom did a wonderful job creating them and I was excited to fill them with the personalized M&M's. Advice: You can't go wrong with balloons. There are so many ways to decorate with them! It's also very gender neutral...just personalize them with your own colors.
