Here’s another great party idea from the Pink and Gold Baby Shower I threw for my sister back in September! By the time I got to planning for the floral arrangements, my party budget was dwindling. My sister and I came up with this inexpensive but chic centerpiece idea on the fly, and it ended up being one of my favorite decorations from the event!
I purchased this great gold glitter tape from Etsy store SwoonPartyShop about a month before the shower. I planned to incorporate it with the centerpiece but I wasn’t sure how it would be done till I finally made it to Miami. I also made a custom order for this beautiful white tulle ribbon from Etsy shop LolaRoseDesigns, which I knew I wanted to use in place of string for the balloons.
Then we bought the square vases at JoAnn’s and used the gold glitter tape to make an easy border along the bottom. At the local grocery store we picked up some small roses and baby’s breath and cut the stems short. Lastly, I used Glue Dots to attach the tulle balloon ribbons to the bottom of the vases. I loved how these turned out and so did the baby shower guests. Simple, low-budget and beautiful!
Looks so romantic! Didn’t think pink and gold is such a wonderful combination!
simple, inexpensive but beautiful!!!
Thanks so much, Lucy!
They were a big hit at the shower too!
I cannot find the white tulle ribbon for the balloons I need it for my daughters graduation party June 3. Can you help me find it? Thank you in advanceLivewithsteph@verizon.net
I’ll be trying these at my daughter’s event. Thanks for the beautiful idea!!
Yay! They were a big hit at my sister’s shower! Hope you have a lovely event!
Hi Kristen ,
Looks great I am planning to have this for my baby’s Baptism party . Could you tell me how did you make the flowers stand straight in the vase without support ???
Congrats on your baby’s upcoming baptism! Very exciting!
I tried to cris-cross the flower stems and cut the stems short enough to match the height of the containers.
I hope this helps!
Hi kristen! I plan to use your idea for centerpieces for my baby’s baptism too. I love it. How many feet of tulle ribbon did you order? I have about 6 tables and want to make sure it’s enough. Thanks!
Beautiful! Thinking of using it for a bridal shower. What size square vase did you use?
Oh how wonderful! I think they were 4 inches! xo, Kristen

I’m so sorry I don’t remember!
