Aren't these balloons just the coolest things!? All you have to do to make them is:
Balloon arch garland are the latest trend and they are absolutely beautiful! By taking chicken wire and fishing line, you can create a stunning masterpiece for the baby shower. The cool thing is - you don't need helium for this project. Just use an air pump to quickly inflate the balloons. Get balloons in all sizes from small to large - adding flowers and greenery also gives it a festive and elegant look.

These DIY glitter dipped balloons are so easy to make - and they are so cute! All you have to do is paint the bottom half of each balloon with glue (use a foam paint brush so the bristles from a regular brush don't pop the balloons.) Then dip each balloon in large bowls of glitter and sequins. Hang from the ceiling with fishing line.
This is a take on the balloons from above, only they added festive gold confetti and hung the balloons from wooden dowels poked in cute white pots. So pretty and elegant! The cool thing is, you can use these as baby shower decorations and then raffle them of to guests to take home - or give to each guest as a baby shower party favor!
Transform everyday balloons into pillowy clouds! String some raindrop cutouts from them, and you have the ultimate baby "shower!" So easy and adorable!

This continues along the same line of adding glitter or confetti to the inside of the balloon - but what really struck me was the flower-covered letter! I am in love! The craft stores are overflowing with cool wooden letters - and all you have to do to create this look is cover it in artificial moss and flowers using a glue gun. You could probably do it with real flowers too - but that is a little bit out of my league!
