Spring break is coming up so soon! Are you going somewhere fun? My mind is already dreaming of palm fronds and sunny beaches. Although in reality we are taking a close to home trip (Santa Cruz) leaving us enough time to get all these crazy house renovations done. In lieu of a tropical vacation, these dreamy pastel palm balloons will fit in just fine!
They are a vacation for my eyes.
The dreamy balloons are a fun way to decorate for Easter (sans the bunnies), Mother’s Day, and all the festive spring brunches coming up quickly.
To make the dreamy painted palm balloons you will need:
- Good quality, thick balloons – I’ll often buy mine from the party store as they have the thickest quality I can find, which means they float higher and longer
- Printed out palm fronds
- Pastel paints + metallic
Dreamy Pastel Palm Balloons
- These balloons get their pretty pastel look by painting pastel colors mixed with metallic over a paper palm cut out. Here are a bunch of great options to print, or cut one out by hand. Use very light printer paper or vellum for the best looking balloons.
- Cover the printed palm with a very light layer of pastel paint mixed with a dash of metallic on both sides.
- While it is still wet lay the palm onto the balloon. It’s okay if the paint smudges around the palm branch a little – it lends to the dreamy island vibe.
Allow the balloons to dry and hang for a party perfect pastel spring look.
