Special Delivery Baby Boy Shower: Hot Air Balloon Theme

Hi! I can't believe how fast time has gone by! It seems like just last week I posted my sister-in-law's girly baby shower and here I am, showing you another shower! Praise the Lord both babies were welcomed into the world, healthy and beautiful. 

Hot air balloon's was the theme and was given to us by my super creative sister! Most credit of this shower goes to her! She gave us the idea of  "special delivery"  It was a play on the idea of the balloon bringing a "Special Delivery".  What a special delivery indeed! :)

This shower unfortunately brought lots of disappointments. We saw many inspirational pictures online and had a list of ideas. I guess the lesson is: Not everything you want to do will turn out. We pictured centerpiece bouquets anchoring large make-shift air balloons and lots of others hanging from the ceilings all around us. You want your presentation to have height to make a statement. Most of those ideas didn't work out :(  As sad as it made me, I feel like there as still ideas that DID work out so I hope you'll find something to inspire you! Or at least give you some enjoyment. :)

 DIY Tablecloth: We painted the clouds on ourselves! It turned out perfect! Subtle yet ethereal. I adored the connection to the theme: We were sitting on clouds :)
 Color theme: Orange and Teal. Napkins from Target. Silverware and utensils from Costco.
I loved how placing the tables in a square was so intimate! We were able to talk to everyone at the shower without feeling like you're yelling across the table. :)

Pastry dough filled with cream and sprinkled with powdered sugar.
 Special Delivery Banner using the color theme and giant circus size balloons which were meant for greater things. Sigh...
 One amazing cake made and decorated by my sister and the showered mom (also my sister-in-law). I baked a little :) 
Who wouldn't want recognition for this awesome cake!?
Love it!

 It was yummy too! :)
My beautiful sisters and me. I'm trying to claim part ownership in the cake by taking a picture with them. :)
Centerpiece bouquets made by the showered mom. I'm in a family of very talented people!
 This is most of us! Thanks to all that came and helped make this shower possible! Without you, it would be empty :)
It was a wonderful evening.

I have another refashion to show you that I'm super excited about! Check back soon. Thanks for letting me be part of your day! Hope it will be beautiful.
