College Going Away Party || Hot Air Balloon Theme

My baby sister Sarah is off to COLLEGE!! It’s seriously so crazy to me. I remember the easy days of playing with Barbie’s, riding our bikes, and playing dress up…. Where has the time gone! I couldn't resist throwing my sister a fun going away shower and it was so fun to spoil her with gifts for her first year at College! After browsing the internet a bit, I grew to love the Hot Air Balloon theme for this going away party. Hot Air balloons are so fun and girly; I couldn't wait to start decorating! Sarah’s favorite color is purple so I used that as the main color scheme for this event. See the pictures below to check out the party! I've included some fun printables and links at the bottom so you can have a hot air balloon party of your own!



I created these cards for friends/family to write notes to Sarah on. 
I created this on Powerpoint after being inspired by this card shop I discovered on Etsy

Lovely brunch. Cranberry juice, bagels & shmear, and fruit fruit fruit!

These will forever be one of my favorite party decorations! These paper lanterns are so easy to re-use and add such a fun element to any party!

Here are some of the fun graphics I used to decorate with!

We couldn't help laughing about old times... Definitely couldn't ask for a better best friend.
 Throwing parties is fun, especially when it's for someone you love!
