Jack's Hot Air Balloon Themed Christening Party

I am pleased to share with you details of a recent, hot air balloon themed christening party which I had the great pleasure of styling and designing all of the decorations.  This was a fantastic theme and colour scheme that is very well suited for a little boy's christening or birthday party! 

Table Decorations 

I first covered each individual table with a white banqueting table cover so, this helped to make all of the tables match, to finish off I then added a green runner down the centre of each table.

For the table centrepieces I designed and made these super cute hot air balloon decorations.  I designed the templates for the base which were made to look like baskets and I used the coordinating papers to create the hot air balloon.  They looked really effective and drew many comments.   

In addition to the centrepieces I also made some small clouds in blue and yellow paper that tied in perfect with the colour scheme these were then scattered onto the tables. 

To finish off the tables I included small paper airplanes, these were placed down the centre  line of the table on top of the runner, these proved to be a big hit with adults and children alike as they inevitably doubled up as a fun activity to throw haha!  It took a bit of searching and research to find the right template for the airplanes and the resulting selection were perfect, quite easy to make and most importantly they flew amazingly !!! ;-) 

Here are the cute centrepieces which I used for the tables! 

Room Decorations

I designed this coordinating banner to match in with the theme and colours.  The banner, bunting, table sign and cupcake toppers will soon be available for purchase in my store please feel free to visit and see the listing, of course this can be made fully personalised to your needs. 

Personalised hot air balloon cupcake toppers and cloud cupcake toppers in matching colour scheme.

The cake topper was designed to mirror as a small version of the table decorations and looked  very cute sat on top of the cake which was made to look like the sky!   I also added a small bunting banner with Jack's name behind the cake topper.

Hot air balloon decorations complimented with helium filled balloons. 

To complete the party stage area I made this hot air balloon photo prop.  This was made from a large cardboard box which I painted to look like the basket and then added a small banner around the box to tie in with the overall colour scheme, sandbags were added and the finishing touch of helium filled balloons.  This was a fun addition to the party and the kiddies enjoyed having their photographs taken in it! Some lovely single and group photos were produced from this simple but effective prop. 

Thank you for taking the time to read this short blog and I hope you enjoy looking at the photos as much as I did planning and creating and hope that you may see something to give you inspiration for your own event. :)
