Aren't these balloons just the coolest things!? All you have to do to make them is:

  • blow up some extra-large balloons in colors to match your event theme (no helium needed, just regular air) 

  • wrap tulle around each balloon and tie with ribbon

  • glue pretty flowers onto the base of each balloon

  • add more ribbon to the base of each balloon

  • now here is the crazy part ... string a piece of clear string (such as fishing line) through the top part of the tulle on the balloon

  • hang from the ceiling from the clear string

  • these balloons get rather heavy when adding the tulle, flowers and ribbon - so it works best to hang from the ceiling so they do not fall to the floor

DIY baby shower Balloon Arch - Instructions On How To Make A Balloon Arch For A Party

Girl Baby Shower Balloon Arch garland are the latest trend and they are absolutely beautiful!

For just a few dollars, you can create a stunning balloon garland 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. 

In the above example, they used chicken wire and fishing line, to create the balloon garland look - but there is another method that you can use that's a bit easier.

You will have a much easier time at this if you have a mini air pump - We didn't have an air pump, which would have saved a ton of time. It took us about an hour to blow all of the balloons up and it was exhausting!

We bought a balloon arch kit for my granddaughter's 1st birthday party - and I found it so easy to use. You can make beautiful baby shower balloon sculptures.

It comes with balloons in different sizes which gives it depth and makes it look like a professional assembled it.

The finished product was pretty impressive. I'll admit, I was skeptical when I bought it, thinking there was no way I could make the balloons look like the picture - but it turned out beautiful! 

Of course I didn't get any pictures of the finished product and I am so sad about it. 

But I do have an extra kit - so I'll make another one for the next party we have and be sure to capture it and share it with you!

This continues along the same line of adding glitter or confetti to the inside of the balloon. I love the baby balloons attached at the base of the big baby shower balloon.

What also 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!
