If you’re looking for an awe-inspiring decoration for your baby shower, check out balloon garland arches. They make for colorful and fun backdrops for family photos. They’re basically made for Instagram, after all. Each garland usually has multiple sizes and colors of balloons—including one shiny or sparkly balloon—along with a leafy accent. No matter if you’re having a boy, girl or don’t want to share the gender, there are plenty of great garland arches to suit your needs. We rounded up the best balloon garland arches for baby showers.
These arches will get lots of compliments, and your party guests will be filling your social media feeds with photos from your event. These sets include anywhere from 50 to 115 balloons, so you’ll be able to create quite the impressive archway. The kits usually come with glue dots and tape to help you make that arch shape. Definitely keep in mind that you’ll need to assemble this arch—and blow up all of the balloons—before deciding to invest in this super cute baby shower decoration. It’ll probably be easier than building your baby’s crib, though, if that’s any comfort. Or you can always enlist your family to help.
