I hate balloons. Not the look of them, but the SOUND. They make me cringe. But if I could have someone blow up the balloons for me, or even transport them for me, then this would be a very fun and festive display. (Of course, if there is no ceiling fan in the room. Do you know, and my mom will testify to this ridiculous fact, that I had a mylar balloon stuck in my ceiling fan for like 5 years!!!!! The ceiling is about 20 feet high, so nobody was too eager to volunteer to untangle it. It's no longer there, of course. And I have not bought a get well balloon for any of my kids since.)
I love, love, love this centerpiece! Roses surrounded by fluffy feathers. (Both these photos from Shabby Chic) The table cloth adds even more femininity - perfect! (It reminds me of a skirt I wore in the 80's.) And finally, I love this ribbon frosted cake. (I think I would need a class before I even attempt this frosting job.) Good luck, Katie!
