12 Baby Shower Balloon Arches & Backdrops That Will Blow You Away

A baby shower is a time to celebrate the parents-to-be, and what says “celebration” more than a creative balloon installation?

Today’s interpretations of balloons go far beyond the traditional helium cluster; choose from balloon arches, installations, centerpieces, and backdrops. Balloons are festive, fun, and — with the help of a balloon or décor professional — can be beautifully integrated into your baby shower design.

These 12 baby shower balloon installations from real events across the country showcase all of the different ways that balloons can inspire your baby shower décor.

From rainbow baby shower balloon arches and bright photo backdrops to flamingos made entirely out of balloons (yes, really) and much more, these are some of our favorite ways to incorporate balloons into any upcoming baby shower celebration.
