Float away with this whimsical theme. Create festive elements -- balloon wreaths and centerpieces -- to get guests in the spirit. Hire a balloon artist to craft your guests' favorite animals and characters, then serve up a simply sweet balloon cake.
A red-balloon lollipop wafts its way off the cake, dragging a little loop of string (aka frosting) onto the cake.
A little clever cutting (and a few well-placed sesame seeds) turns ordinary Babybel cheese into cute characters that entice your guests.
To make this fun and festive wreath, simply pin an array of uninflated balloons to a styrofoam wreath, making sure to cover every inch.
Turn a round paper lantern into a cute hot-air balloon centerpiece by attaching it with wooden skewers to a small, square basket. Ours holds colorful crayons for favors.
Hire a balloon artist to craft custom creations for your guests (they can double as favors).
Send guests home with a balloon creation -- and bubbles to keep the fun going after the balloon deflates.
