Looking at this charming boy’’s birthday party is as refreshing as taking a deep breath of fresh air! Amanda De Santis, of Red Wagon Events, styled this delightful Hot Air Balloon themed celebration. A backdrop of stylized clouds and a giant hot air balloon established the mood for a bountiful menu, companion decorations, and gracious favors for a wonderful first birthday celebration.

Pretty and Print was the go-to for all of the terrific graphic designs. I especially like their choice to use patterned lines in the background sky and the curlicues of the clouds that convey the impression of movement. They could have just used solid blue and white, but the patterns are much more interesting.
