Modern, whimsical and dreamy are how we would describe Shyla’s vintage hot air balloon 1st birthday party!
Guests were greeted by a custom created hot air balloon photo prop and gift table draped in the same linen as our primary sweets display.
Light pink, ivory, gold and hints of mint blue-green were weaved throughout the entire party’s decor design. The focal point of our dessert display was definitely the hand painted backdrop by Created by Jackie, inspired by Shyla’s custom invitation design. Next, we added these “cloud-like” linens sourced from local House of Hough. And then from there, we layered simple designs such as the 2 cakes with vintage props and whimsical cake balls. Mimicking the pennants hanging from the hot air balloons, we layered a mini-gold pennant banner and a vintage pink “Happy Birthday” banner in front of the dessert table.
The guest tables were slightly rustic in design, layering crisp white linens with burlap runners. Centerpieces alternated between pink hot air balloon florals and groupings of painted mason jars and global travel items such as mini-globes and map-printed books & crates.
Guest activities included an obstacle course bounce house to the left side of the venue indoors, a face painter/balloon artist and the park grounds just outside the doors.
Party guests departed with quaint bags of pink & white popcorn with tags reading, “Thanks for Flying By! Shyla”.
