Baby Shower Idea: Balloon Placecards

Tuesday, October 19, 2010

What is it about balloons and celebrations?  I mean, it's no secret that Elizabeth and I can't help but giggle in girlish delight when we see baby showers that use these magical floating balls of joy in creative ways.  Remember this little gem we featured when we first launched?  Elizabeth and I went completely BONKERS over the sea of balloons at that fête!  (And, based on our feedback from you, dear readers, we weren't the only ones).  :)  Well, prepare yourself for an all out balloon love fest today because Chelsea Fuss from Frolic! has stolen our hearts and made them go pitter patter with this creative balloon seating card arrangement.  Can you imagine how cute your guests would look walking around your baby shower with these?  Or how sweet these balloons would look floating at each place setting?  Just thinking about the amazing balloon pictures your photographer could capture make our hearts ache! (We mean a-c-h-e).  So, if you too are feeling oh-so inspired by Chelsea's photos, then we've got the prefect news for you (if your heart can handle it) -- Chelsea let us know that she actually created an online photograph tutorial for this project on Project Wedding, so you can now recreate these little floating beauties for your next baby shower.  Um, we think this news is just a little bit beyond awesome -- and, it's suddenly making our Tuesday morning seem just a little bit sweeter :)

From Chelsea... I think balloons are always magical. For my latest Project Wedding DIY article, I made these seating/table assignment cards. I like the idea of guests walking around with balloons! These would also be great favors and centerpieces for a kid's [or baby shower] party.
