A couple of weeks ago me and my mom thought it would be a good idea to throw 2 bridal showers and 1 baby shower at our house all within one week of each other. It was a little crazy, but a lot of fun. Me and my mom are the perfect party planning duo if I do say so myself! One of my favorite things about party planning is figuring out a theme. This baby shower was for 2 ladies in my family. Sarah and Sarah, one Sarah already had her baby girl, so it was fun to have the baby there. The other Sarah is having a baby boy in a couple weeks, which I am so excited about because he is going to make me an aunt! So I had to think of a theme that would suit a boy and a girl that are not twins. I decided to go with a hot air balloon adventure theme and I am so glad I did!
I bought some paper honeycombs at the party store then hot glued some skewers and a basket to the bottom. We hung them up with command strips above the food table. They were too cute we even left them up for a couple days 🙂
For the food we kept everything pretty simple. We did chicken salad on croissants, some different salads and a few desserts.
We thought that it would be cute if we had cotton candy as a take home favor, because they look like clouds. Okay storytime, me and my mom were wondering where we could buy cotton candy in bulk, but we couldn’t find any anywhere so we kind of gave up on this idea. Then, a couple hours before the party my mom was driving around town and there was a little girl selling cotton candy on the side of the road. So she pulled over and told her to make us 30 and put them in little baggies! How perfect is that?! When we got home we added some cloud paper at the top then we added a little tag that read “we’re on cloud nine about these babies!”.
