Baby Shower Idea: Hot Air Balloon

Monday, November 21, 2011

Originally seen on On to Baby, this Hot Air Ballon baby shower is absolutely breathtaking! I'm head-over-heals in LOVE with this whimsical dessert table {desserts from Batch from Scratch and cotton Candy from Tasty Clouds} as well as the stunning table settings! Fleuretica's decor and flowers are just P-E-R-F-E-C-T. I just can't get over all the little details! STUNNING! The mommy-to-be, Caroline Tran, was also the brilliant photographer capturing this sweet shower. Her friend and host, Hanna Lim of lollacup, did a wonderful job putting together this fabulous soiree. What a memorable occasion!!!!

From Caroline... I am feeling like the luckiest girl right now. Growing up, I never had any close friends. I had a gazillion acquaintances, but never any close friends. I hated how cliquish high school was and chose not to be part of any cliques. Instead, I hung out with several cliques, but was never truly a part of any. In college, I learned the value of close friends and decided that I would put my energy into those who are real friends. In grad school, I met a girl named Hanna. We instantly clicked and have become close friends since. We saw each other through so many milestones. She inspired me in so many more ways than she’ll never know. Her and her now husband inspired me to start my own business. And Hanna just launched her new company, lollacup, and I couldn’t be more proud and inspired!

I was so fortunate to have the very amazing Fleuretica not only do the flowers for my shower, but also most of the decor. I LOVE the custom napkins! I love geometric patterns. And I LOVE that they used film canisters as mini vases!!!

Hanna’s also an amazing chef. She made all the savory foods, and sent guests home with homemade jam! I was also so honored to have Esther from Batch from Scratch make desserts for us. I love the dessert table! Euri & Kendra spelled out the menu with gold wiring! And I love the little cotton candy hot air balloons. Yummy cotton candy by Nina from Tasty Clouds. Esther made some amazing Apple tart & scones! And my favorite was her banana pudding! I ate an entire container.

I saw the most beautiful hot air balloon mobiles the other day and I am now convinced that I will use this theme to decorate my next baby's nursery. This party is so gorgeous!
