The New Balloons

We're so thrilled to be getting back into the swing of things with our blog, as we're just oozing with all this wedding amazingness we're just dying to share!  We wanted to kick off the week with a blast from the past... a darling decor idea you wrote off when you were twelve, but should seriously reconsider: the balloon.

With a sleek new shape and a variety of shades your birthday parties never knew, balloons are back and totally bridal-worthy.

Some of our favorite fresh design ideas:

Lace
A little less 'cutesie' and perfectly pretty.



Styling: Rhiannon Nicole of Hey Gorgeous Events


Big Top Beautiful
An inexpensive way to add a bit of whimsy for those who look up.

Photobooth Fun
Give your photobooth an unexpected twist.

Softness and Dimension in Numbers
An empty room is a perfect backdrop for an engagement shoot when filled with balloons of a soft, singular color.





Height
When you have a high ceiling (or no ceiling) and your table needs some height, balloons bring it.
