Up Up Away Mint Green, Yellow and Grey Baby Shower

I had the pleasure of developing an Up Up & Away Baby Shower for a friend from High School. 
She specifically requested Elephants and the colors; Mint Green, Yellow and Grey. So that's what I gave her. 
I love to be transparent with the parties that I create and show you that you can always DIY! So check out the details and all of the tutorials below. 

I wish I could take credit for the genius idea of the Hot Air balloons. I got the tutorial from Laura @ Live Craft Love. Check out the tutorial here. It was super easy but made a big impact.
Additionally, the clouds were made via a tutorial found from Andersruff.

 The mother to be is Vegan. Her sister got this cake especially for her from Sticky Fingers in Washington DC. And might I say, it was delicious! I just added a cute mini banner and Viola!
 Cotton Candy from the Dollar Tree. It was so good. I just bagged them up with these tie bags found at Michael's and added a label. 

 My Fabulous friend Heather of Sugar Fairy Celebrations always comes through. She made the delicious elephant cookies and the infamous Oreo Cookie Cake Pops!

 All the candy came from Oh Nuts. Love them!
 Staples did a great job of blowing up the backdrop sign. I just got on there website, uploaded a PDF version of the sign, chose the desired size and sent it directly to the closet store near me. It was ready within 4 hours.  
 Dessert Labels that I created. 

 The Father-to-be's mother and aunt made all of the delicious good. Look how vibrant this fruit is!
 The little grey and white bags, 36" balloon with a Hot Air Balloon netting and mint green polka dot straws(seen in the rice crispy treats) came from BonFortune.
I was so upset that I left the Hot Air Balloon netting :-(  that I got from BonFortune. But I did create this tassel to hang on the balloon.  

I displayed the invitation that I designed and made beside this fringe letter. This was fun and easy. I got this festive tutorial from Tara of One Stylish Party

 Loved how the punch matched the party decor

I also had table Hot Air Balloons. I'll give you a tutorial on how to create these in a later post. 

 Two of the three Hostesses and Friends of the Mother and Father to be.
 Erica was so surprised and had no clue that this was the day of her event. She was in awe of everything. 

 The event was a lovely time and as you can see that Mother-to-be could not be anymore happier. 

The soon to be Big Sister
The Happy Family

Hope you enjoyed!
