Up, up and away! This theme has become popular recently and I am not surprised! Such an enchanting theme and one that captures the wonder of all little one’s. A sky filled with hot air balloons is certainly an amazing sight and this theme gives you the opportunity to share that amazement with your little one!
This theme can work for a boy or a girl (I have some lovely girl selections to show you in this post!) and looks gorgeous as a vintage style party, or you could make it modern and bright!
Think hot air balloons & clouds as well as travel inspired items such as globes and maps! Use stripes to create a classic hot air balloon look or other patterns for a unique look.
There is no shortage of amazing designs in this theme. Here are a few I found, some of which are also available in other colour schemes:
