Hot Air Balloon Baby Shower

Are you looking for a little inspiration for your baby shower? Here is a fun idea for a mom-to-be who loves to travel. A travel themed baby shower, complete with hot air balloons, hang gliders, and sweet pinwheels.

The Desert Table

The centerpiece of the party was the desert table, complete with Macaroon tower, jars of candies, licorice, and pinwheel suckers.

The backdrop was handmade using foam board covered with light blue fabric. The hot air balloons, clouds, pinwheels, kite banner, and letters were all cut using a Brother Scan n Cut.

Diaper Cake

The diaper cake was made by attaching rolled up diapers around a box, made to look like a hot air balloon basket.  The balloon was made with a baby blue paper lantern, decorated with washi tape, heart stickers, and buttons. It was held up using 4 long woodden dowels and attached with hot glue.

Party Favors

The party favors were made using dollar store favor boxes, decorated with travel themed washi tape. Paper straws made up the hot air balloon frame, attached to colorful mini balloons.

The gift inside was handmade soaps.


No baby shower is complete without a onesie bunting. I made a few onesies to match the theme, a bicycle, hot air balloon, hang glider, and kite.

I hope you found a little inspiration here for your baby shower. Enjoy planning this special day!

  1. Oh my goodness! These baby shower photos are way too adorable. Entire party looks just blasting. My cousin is also expecting and I want to host baby shower for her but would like to host this bash at some outdoor garden event Venues in NYC. Hoping to find a venue soon.
