Sweet Snaps #5

I absolutely love it when customers send me photos from their parties and events!

It’s such a joy to see creativity + a love for celebrating + big smiles all come together!  I literally couldn’t stop smiling looking at these photos submitted by one of our sweet customers!  All I can say about her little one and her little one’s 1st birthday party is “PURE CUTENESS!”

I love how she used multiple 36 inch balloons (wild berry, wintergreen, lime green, red, and yellow)  to create the perfect backdrop so effortlessly!

Sweet Snaps Entry #2: Betsey Darley Photography

Last month, I had the pleasure of collaborating with the wonderful and talented Betsey Darley of Betsey Darley Photography, a custom photographer based in Fairfax, Virginia.  Looking through her website portfolio, one can admire her artistry, the vibrant colors in her work, and her ability to capture genuine smiles and fun in her photos.  So you can imagine I was beyond excited when she contacted me.  These are some of the photos she shared with me from her bright pink and orange cupcake party!

Love how she presented our hot pink and orange dotted birch wood cutlery in this cute little tin bucket!

She was also sweet enough to send us a photo of our fabulous 36″ Round Citrine Yellow balloon in action!  But despite this balloons’ unquestionable charm, it doesn’t hold a candle to this beautiful couple and parents-to-be!  Thanks for sharing this with us!

Giant Balloon Obsession

I don’t know what it is about balloons that make me feel, well… just happy!  They’re whimsical and some kind of magical.  It could just be me… but don’t tell me you don’t feel any sense of wonder looking at these beautiful giant balloon decorating ideas.

These giant balloons really set the tone for your event.  Your choice of colors and placement add a fun, whimsical element.  Imagine walking up to a party or wedding venue and this is what greets you at the entryway (seen on Glamour.com)…


Designer Kristi Bender (from COCOCOZY) uses one 36″ balloon in front of her doorway to welcome her guests.  How easy would it be if you could just tell your guests “It’s the house with the giant balloon outside,” when giving them directions to your party?  She also uses these balloons with beautiful tassels in her backyard birthday bash.
