Balloons are such a great way to decorate for a baby shower, bridal shower or birthday party. Here’s a simple way to add a fun backdrop — that you can do ahead of time — to either a photobooth, dessert table, or even hanging over a sit-down luncheon. Choose a color palette that works well with your party design and try using some patterns. Be creative!!! 

Materials Needed:
Sewing Machine
Cardstock Paper (Download rainbow paper here)
Scissors
Ribbon
Tape
Balloon Template (Download here)

Step-by-Step Instructions:
1. Print the balloon template on your cardstock paper
2. Cut out the balloon, just inside the dotted line
3. Sew each balloon down the middle, grouping 4-6 together
4. Tie ribbons on each, or every other balloon
5. Hang from the ceiling with tape. Enjoy!

 ps- After you stop by Bump Smitten (and get lost for hours like I did), be sure to also say hi at C.R.A.F.T. for a gorgeous vintage-y baby shower (popsicle mimosas! LOVE!)!
