Decorating with balloons

Balloons are one of the happiest ways to decorate a party. Clump them together in various colors to add a fun look or on their own. There are so many options! Here are some of my favorite ways to decorate with balloons.

  1. Single oversized balloon–give it to the bride to hold!
  2. Balloons on a ladder–right outside the venue!
  3. Balloons throughout a room–perfect to dress up a boring reception venue
  4. Balloons on a stick–hand them out to your guests
  5. Balloons in a window–entice your guests with a fun balloon display in a window
  6. Balloons on a ceiling–douse the ceiling with hundreds of balloons
  7. Write words on a balloon–and have a flower girl hold them
  8. Balloon arch–perfect for picture taking or for the ceremony
  9. Balloons in various colors along a path–perfect for wayfinding in an outdoor space
  10. Balloon columns–a fun way to dress up a space
  11. Confetti balloons–don’t you just love the look?!

DIY: Decorate a pie box

DECORATE-A-PIE-TAKEAWAY-BOX-WITH-WASHI-TAPE

I love a bright and cheery takeaway at an event. You feel so much more a part of the action! Consider gifting a piece of pie or cake to each guest with a pie box that you’ve decorated with some fun washi tape. It’s so easy to do and worth just the little bit of effort.

Materials: pie/cake boxes (I got mine from A La Modo Etsy shop), washi tape in a few different colors,

MATERIALS

Step 1: Assemble your pie box.

Step 2: Tape up the sides in stripes. Guests will have to slice the box open with a knife if you wrap it all the way around or cut slices into where the box joins together.

So easy yet impactful!
