Confetti Balloon Summertime Party

Glitter may be the herpes of the craft world, but confetti is its equal in the realm of parties.

There’s something about these massive clear balloons with colorful confetti that is so light and airy, but still creates a festive, high energy feeling. Plus, the cleanup is much easier than just putting confetti everywhere! The oversized circle confetti plays off the oversized balloons, making proportions a feature of the decor. The same confetti circles used as a photo booth backdrop make a white wall really pop, and is easy to make. Smaller, confetti filled balloons gathered together as a centerpiece make an excellent complement to the look as well.

If you are worried about your next get-together looking a little drab and low energy, mix it up and throw a confetti balloon summertime party! Use this contained confetti to bring in a whimsy playfulness to your party, without having to deal with the mess of it all. A clever invitation and a few smart and strategic decor pieces can transform the vibe of any party instantly. From bridal showers, to birthday parties, to baby showers, confetti balloons can be your saving grace, especially in a last minute soiree.

Here is what I had in mind for this confetti balloon summertime party:

Rustic Spring Baby Shower Ideas

When I first started sharing my weekly idea and inspiration board for themed parties, Pinterest was just starting to get momentum. It was being constantly flooded with the newest party concept and design. Every possible party rendition seemed to be shared. Maybe it was just who I was following, or what group boards infiltrated my feed more at the time, but it sure seemed like baby showers were pinned and shared way more than they used to be. There was so much content being shared, I was inspired on more than a few occasions to create a themed baby shower idea board, (you can see all of my party idea boards dedicated specifically to baby showers HERE). Maybe it’s because what people are pinning and sharing has changed, or maybe my feed has been curated in a different focus, but I just don’t feel like I see a lot of baby shower content anymore.

Of all the images in this week’s rustic spring baby shower idea board, you’d probably never guess which image inspired the post. Believe it or not, it was actually the bird’s nest tablescape. There was something so fresh, but with a rustic twist, that caught my eye. If you stop by my main site, A Sparkly Life for Me, you can follow along on my journey as I try to create at least one beautiful home tablescape a month.  I mention this because I have been increasingly more aware of the details of the many centerpieces and table decor concepts I have been pinning on Pinterest, trying to gleam elements that could scale to be used on my own home table decor.

This week, the concept in my head was to create a rustic baby shower, perfect for the spring time, with hints of new life scattered in the baby bunny tails, and bird eggs thoughtfully placed throughout the decor. Here’s what I had in mind:

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star Baby Shower

You won’t be seeing any baby blues or pinks in this baby shower idea board! Nope, this week’s party inspiration board is for the mom-to-be that loves to mix things up. Unlike some of my more traditional baby shower themes, this week I present you with a bolder baby shower theme. You’ll find richer hues, darker shades, and of course a few handfuls of gold glitter in this twinkle, twinkle, little star themed baby shower.

This baby shower would be AMAZING on a cool and breezy evening, especially on a back patio or yard, when it’s just a little chilly out. Twinkling lights overhead would make for perfect finishing touches, but if you don’t have the space for it, I wouldn’t worry about it. This unique theme makes this a great concept for year round celebrations.

Here’s what I had in mind for this little star themed baby shower:

Spring Peach Blossoms and Ribbon Bridal Shower Party Ideas

Did you know that March 3 is Peach Blossom Day? Or that February 28 is Floral Design Day?

That’s ok, I didn’t either. But after finding out that the two holidays were so close to each other, I thought, why not combine the two? They do go hand in hand.

And with that idea in mind, I put together this springtime peach blossom bridal shower party idea board with accents of flowy ribbon and fabric strands to balance out the organic nature of the flowers and food. This is a very soft and feminine soiree, just like the peach blossoms celebrated- and absolutely perfect for a springtime bridal shower.

Sugary Sweet Pastels + Jelly Beans – Baby Shower Ideas

Ahhhhh yes. The smell of sugar.

You know what I’m talking about. At some point in your life you’ve opened up a bag of your favorite sweet treat and inhaled the sugary scent that was released. And you totally loved it. I would go so far as to say you even had a smile on your face after.

A lot of mommy-to-be ladies out there share a similar smile, for obviously more legitimate reasons – I mean they are making a tiny human after all – but they still are happy and smiling and full of positivity.

Those emotions are what sparked the inspiration for this sugary sweet baby shower inspiration board. Here’s what I had in mind:
