24 Baby Shower Balloon Decoration Ideas That Will Blow You Away

We can’t help thinking of baby shower balloon decoration ideas when we hear someone is expecting. After all, 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.

What says “celebration” more than a creative balloon installation?”

These 24 baby shower balloon decoration ideas 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.

Best of all? We’ve included vendor credits. So if you see something you like, make sure to click on the name of the event professional. You’ll be redirected to their PartySlate profile page where you can learn more about the company and see more photos of their work.
