{obsessed with} Big Round Balloons

Maybe I am just a kid at heart, but I really cannot get enough of these big round balloons I keep seeing around the web. I am not sure if it is the huge burst of color against the sky, the laughable size in comparison to the person holding it or the way it can beautifully and simply fill up a space.

I recently used a few of these three-foot balloons at the Pink and Gray Sweet Celebration I styled this summer. They were a hit with kids and adults alike!

All of this inspired me to try them out on my own kid. My sister and I attempted to be professional photographers this week with our 18 month olds. The toddler/balloon situation did not go as swimmingly as hoped, but we were still able to capture a few adorable photos of our own.

If you live in the Milwaukee area, you can get these balloons at Bartz’s Party Stores. I’ve also seen them for sale online at i luv sugar and Shop Sweet Lulu.

If you have a creative way you have used big balloons, we’d love to hear from you!

Pink & Gray Sweet Celebration

Growing up, I was not much of a girly girl. My room was always red and black, I had Michael Jordan and Sammy Sosa posters hanging on my wall and pink was not in my wardrobe. As I’ve grown older, pink has snuck itself into my bold colored world. This summer,¬†I was delighted to be hired to throw a beautiful celebration in honor of little Harper Grace. Immediately, I had visions of pink and gray, soft, summery colors and textures with little girly touches. I fell in love with this party and everything girly and I am very excited to share it with you today!

We created a pink candy buffet using rock candy, gumballs, salt water taffy, ribbon candy and lollipops. Guests were also able to take home miniature glass milk bottles filled with pink M&Ms.

Large round gray balloons tied with pink ribbon adorned the entrance to the walkway, which was lined with little white lanterns and pink candles.

Summer floral centerpieces with green hydrangea and pink roses sat atop the tables, alternating with hurricane vases filled with clear glass rock and pink candles.

Guests were able to enjoy the outdoors in wooden Adirondack chairs topped with pink and white polka dot pillows.

A pink and gray Harper Grace pendant banner looped with pink gingham ribbon hung above the sweets table.

Guests enjoyed mini cupcakes from Milwaukee Cupcake Company with flavors including: White Chocolate Raspberry, Pink Champagne and Chocolate Dipped Strawberry.

Guests were able to take their goodies home in translucent pink take out boxes detailed with a monogram sticker to match the invitation and decor.

Guests were also able to enjoy and take home monogrammed sugar cookies.

Even the bathrooms came complete with matching signs for the rest of the party, hung with pink and white polka dot ribbon.

Napkins were tied together with thin polka dot ribbon and a monogram tag.

What a beautiful day it was! A special thanks to Kate at The Home Market and to Milwaukee Cupcake Company, Canopies and Locker’s Florist.
