Here are a few ideas using hot air balloons to get you started, just click on the headlines in each section to see the websites and details:

DIY Hot Air Balloon Party Décor

From Flax and Twine blog at the link, they show you step-by-step how to create your own paper hot-air balloons that are light as air just like in the photo! They used for a Mother’s luncheon, but it doesn’t take much to change up the words and use your own colors. You can hang these from an indoor ceiling or on ropes or strings of light hung from tree to tree in an outdoor wedding.

Dessert Table

There are so many fun things that you can do with your dessert table if you use this timeless theme. Hot-air balloon shaped cookies, cake-pops, colorful dime-store candy, and cupcakes decorated to look like clouds can create a fun, exciting feeling. At the link, you’ll find some party ideas utilizing the theme to help you mix and match your thoughts, whether simple or extravagant.


If you opt for hot air balloons to be your centerpiece such as in this beautiful photo, you’ll be on your way to a beautiful wedding full of glamour. You can even DIY centerpieces yourself with balloons and netting or for lighter approach, use paper lanterns! Use small baskets, adorning with rope or fish net and decorate with flowers or put something inside the baskets on your table, like disposable cameras.

Of course, there are many other ideas for creating a wedding that will soar above the rest, you only need to open your imagination. Use hot air balloons on invitations, have a life-size basket and back drop at the wedding for photo ops, give small hot air balloon favors such as coasters adorned with their art or photographs, and use light colors in dramatic fashion to make your event feel light and airy.
