Reminiscent of the movie “Around the world in 80 days,” soar into summer with a hot air balloon-inspired picnic. Host the event in your backyard with helium-filled balloons, globes, old fashioned picnic baskets and plenty of sweet treats. We put together some colorful and fun ideas for an up, up and away extravaganza—a summer flight that you and your guests are sure to enjoy.
Add a little hot air balloon embellishment to keep with the party theme.
Around and Around
Lollipops placed on a napkin add color and whimsy.
A salty snack that is easy to hold and complements the sweet treats.
Around the World
