Usually when I think of balloons, I think of cheap prom decorations, little-kid birthdays and otherwise too-juvenile-to-be-cool situations. But these two pictures enthrall me. They are playful but still sophisticated enough to fly for a grown-up party.
The haphazard strands of every possible color have a rather magical quality - though I'm sure the stately old manor helps. Imagine an outdoor party with amorphous pillars of balloons delineating the space. Enchanting.
For a beautiful outdoor wedding - drape the ceremony site in beautiful white fabric suspended by giant balloons. Could be logistically tricky, but the effect is so whimsical and beautiful.
If these pictures are yours, let me know!
