    Andrea, where is the gold balloon from? I have been searching non-stop for them in Edmonton and/or Canada!
    Gorgeous party!

    Ok, so i used baby food jars with twine for drinks at Carter’s party in March. I’m so glad you didn’t post these picture before then, so I can prove that I’m not ALWAYS strictly inspired by you, and only you. You. You.
