Up, Up and Away

The shower was held at the Ritz Carlton New Orleans. Chosen for it’s vantage point and view of the city, it truly made guests feel like they were up in the clouds. White and blue balloons anchored the tables and added a touch of whimsy to this up, up and away baby shower. They wanted guests to feel like they were in the clouds, and the groupings of balloons were the perfect touch.
