VINTAGE HOT AIR BALLOON

A very talented family got together to plan a fantastic party to celebrate the great news of a baby girl!  With a hot air balloon theme, these three fabulous ladies designed the party and DID IT ALL THEMSELVES!  With one graphic designer, one baker, and one photographer all from the same family, they will blow you away with their ideas and talent!

The beautiful dessert table had treats that were all home made...I am especially impressed with the "W" suckers displayed among the clouds and blue sky...

This cake, by Jessicakes, is so lovely that I have to show you more!

And, look at these amazing (HANDMADE) hot air balloons!  They were made using paper lanterns and covered in cut-outs from book pages.  The "baskets" were made from scapbooking paper and tied on to the lanterns with baking twine...

Wow!  What a talented set of ladies and one lucky mom-to-be!  The hot air balloons will float in the sweet baby girl's nursery!  Each guest received a yummy cloud cookie- homemade, of course!

Thank you, Jessicakes and Family for sharing this beautiful party!
