Boy’s Hot Air Balloon Birthday Party

Baby Mathias’ vintage-style hot air balloon birthday party was organized by his talented mom, Meredith, who entrusted her theme choice to the artful Yolanda, at Kiss With Style.

This little boy birthday party venue was inside a gorgeous marquee at the Amora Riverwalk in Melbourne, Australia, so the beautiful tented area was a perfect party setting already, but Yolanda’s engaging decoration ideas on the beautiful dessert table enhanced the entire affair. Flowers, balloons, birthday cake, cupcakes, special take-home favors, music, party games -what a party!
