I hope you’re ready for a die cut cuteness overload! Today I’ve got a set of adorable graphics that you’re going to love. Get a glimpse of the party I threw this weekend for my little Elliott, and download these fun, die cut hot air balloons too!
When it comes to little kids birthday parties, I never quite know what to do to make them “fun,” but, if nothing else, you can’t go wrong with cute decorations to make guests go, “Awww.”
For Elliott’s party, I created a fun hot air balloon backdrop and “basket” people could take pictures in when they arrived. This was a hit with the kiddos and adult alike!
Ceiling decorations included balloons with strings and cupcake liners attached to look like hot air balloons. I’m not the most over-the-top person when it comes to party decorating, but I LOVE to have a decorated ceiling! Plus, ever since I did something similar for my older son’s birthday, he always looks forward to seeing balloons hanging up everywhere!
Food is definitely my least favorite part of party-throwing! I
kind of really hate cooking, so cooking for a large group of people mostly just stresses me out (a lot). So, I decided to keep things simple with an ice cream bar and cupcakes. I did decide to add an extra touch of cuteness by creating some hot air balloons made out of marshmallows, chocolate, sprinkles, noodles, and Rolos. Okay, maybe I don’t hate preparing ALL kinds of food…I can make exceptions when it comes to desserts.
As you can see, I put my die cut hot air balloons and clouds to use in a variety of ways: garlands, centerpieces, cupcakes toppers: so there’s really no end to how you can implement these bad boys!
If you missed it last week, be sure to check out the hot air balloon invitations I made and download the template for yourself.
Enjoy using these fun hot air balloons for your own party, scrapbooking, or whatever else you can think of!
