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!
This is the kit that we bought for my granddaughter's 1st birthday party - I found it so easy to use. You can make beautiful baby shower balloon sculptures.
You will want to buy balloons in different sizes. Then, you add all of the larger balloons to the strip, and attach the smaller balloons on with glue dots (which are included.)
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!
(I did, however take pictures of my sweet baby granddaughter with her cake and a cute balloon letter backdrop - which you can see below.)
Here is some more "baby shower balloon" prettiness for you! A clever hula hoop baby shower balloon wreath with balloon letters in the center.
This balloon wreath was actually made using the balloon strip mentioned above. You assemble the balloons onto the strip and attach it to the hula hoop with clear tape (sturdy packing tape would work best.)
You can also spray paint the hula hoop to match the shower or party decor.
Here is another adorable example of incorporating a hula hoop into your baby shower balloon decor.
To make this baby shower hula hoop decor you will need:

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 baby shower balloon creations as decorations for the baby shower - and then raffle them of to guests to take home - or give to each guest as a baby shower party favor!
If you are looking to create a BIG statement, you can decorate with jumbo, 36" balloons.
They come in all kinds of colors and are so cool! You can make them even prettier than they are by adding floral vines or ribbon to the string.
Transform everyday balloons into pillowy clouds!
String some raindrop cutouts from them, and you have the ultimate baby "shower!" So easy and adorable!
Believe it or not, this cute baby shower decoration is also a baby shower game!
Each bag has a baby-related item in it that starts with the letter on the bag.
Give each guest a piece of paper with the letters
B A B Y S H O W E R
written down the side of the paper.
Have them write their name on the top and then fill in what they think is in each bag according to the letters on the bags.
Ex: you might put booties in the B bag, apple sauce in the A bag, and so on.
The guest who guests the most correct, wins a baby shower prize!

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!
Baby Shower Balloon Ideas: Having balloons at a baby shower can really add a whole new level of cuteness.
To achieve this trendy look: Blow up 30 helium balloons to match the color of the baby shower theme. Attach a string to each balloon, and tie them all to a cute plush teddy bear.
Display on the baby shower food table or gift table - so adorable!

Such an adorable baby shower centerpiece! You can raffle off the centerpiece to one of the guests, or give it to the mom-to-be to put in the baby's nursery.
