Hot Air Balloon Party - Up, Up & Away

C's Hot Air Balloon Cake!

As you know C turned 7 last week.  He had an amazing Hot Air Balloon party over the weekend.  I made a lot of the decorations (with the girls help) and David made an awesome cake (as always)!  Hope you enjoy.

 
 Decorations including a photo op I set up for the kiddos.

 Baby F flying away.

 B floating away.

The Birthday Boy

D taking flight.

And E.

The Food Spread

C picked his menu.  Fruit tray, pigs and blankets, chips and guacamole, M&Ms, bags of chips and of course cake and ice cream (Rainbow Sherbert and The Great Divide).

 
 I made balloon baskets using 1/8inch wooden dowels and balloons.

 M&M basket made with wafer cookies.

 
Hot air balloons we made with paper lanterns and small seed planters.

And a fun banner!

Fun plates I found.

And hot air balloon napkins

Another fun photo of the cake.

 C blowing out his candles!

 The oldest 3 kids also made a homemade pinata.  Unfortunately I didn't get a photo of it completely decorated but you get the idea.

Thanks everyone! I was pleased with how everything turned out. I purchased the wicker chalkboard basket from Target. As soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to make a hot air balloon with it!
