Inspired by Balloons

Images via Pinterest

My inspirational folder is bursting with images these days and I though you might enjoy looking at what creatively moves me from time to time as well. 

I know balloons are cheesy, I know everyone has a ton of pictures with them, but I just cannot get enough of them. I'm really looking forward to some portrait sessions this summer featuring colorful balloons! :)

i love the quote so much!! balloons are one of those things like confetti and paper chains, that if done right, can totally be classic and uncheesy, but if done wrong can be a big old mess! i wish they were better for the environment so i could let go of a bunch at my wedding...

Ah, yes! Balloons make everything POP, no?! Hahahaha...I, too, am cheesey because I intended that pun. Love balloons in pics. Especially the black dress with the bright balloons!!!

Balloons are always a lovely gift! I prefer a bunch of balloons rather than a dozen roses, they make me feel 5 years old again, your collage is so cute!

Lea said...

but who does not love balloons? So cute and happy. Especially when they're all colorful. I mean, I still smile like a dork and bounce (tug) them around if I have them. Pretty pictures. Love the wedding/engagement one.

One of my most favorite memories was from college, when I convinced my RA to let me into my best friend's dorm room so that I could fill up her balloons for a birthday surprise. It was one of the most cheerful things I've ever seen: multi-colored balloons from the floor up to the windows. So I love the idea of styling with balloons in mind!

Caitlin said...
