Styled around a soft blue, cloud filled sky backdrop, this hot air balloon themed christening party is totally inviting. I love the way the blue sky theme is repeated throughout the dessert table. Sweet Tiers is responsible for the lovely desserts, including the two-tiered cake that looks like a piece of the sky, with mini-bunting that appears to flutter in a breeze. The detailing is delightful! Precious cloud cookie pops, beautifully decorated cupcakes and marshmallows clouds all reference the theme, too. A variety of pretty cake stands, baskets and paper suitcases are used to display the desserts and add height and interest to the table.

Lovely jars filled with shades of aqua blue and white candies, topped with fancy bows, surely enticed every sweet tooth. The lollipop swirls especially say “celebrate” to me!

A few jolts of red enliven the entire tablescape in an understated way. A whimsical red beaked bird flutters over the table. The red and white hot air balloon floating above the sweets is just perfect. Did you notice the miniature ballast bags on the basket? Cute touch! I like how the hot air balloon concept was carried over to the guest tables and used as centerpieces as well.
