Pretty Little Things :: Party Balloons

Things have been getting pretty cold here in the northeast lately, and it’s got me thinking about the holidays nonstop. Gifts for friends & family, spiced drinks, cozy sweaters and scarves… Normally I’m a summer girl, but I can’t help but get excited for the time of year that gives us great reasons to gather with loved ones, shower one another with gifts, and snuggle up.

This winter will also be the first holiday season for J’Adorn, which has got me extra pumped. I’m planning a little holiday party in early December and I am going nuts (the good kind) pinning  thinking of ideas for decor and yummy treats.

One party staple that’s been catching my eye lately are big, glitzy, fabulous balloons. I owe it to my girl Joy  for bringing their greatness to my attention, and I am really excited to incorporate them in the styling for my holiday event. Here’s a few of the best examples I’ve seen:

Clear balloons filled with confetti? Love it! It’d look even more glamourous if the balloons were filled with metallic confetti.

I’m also obsessing over the fringed tails of these balloons. I love the soft colors and texture of the globes and the fabric & lace add such a nice touch of softness.

I think this one is extra cool! The color and size variations of these balloons make me think of a sparkly party drink, like this spiced white wine sangria, or a glass of champagne on New Year’s Eve.

I’m looking forward to more settling in at our new home and a date with my hubby this weekend. I hope you all enjoy the days of rest and stay warm! Friends without electricity, my heart is with you!
