Wednesday Woo: Japanese Paper Balloons

We have loved these paper balloons for a long time so it was inevitable that they would find their way into the Sisters Guild Boutique, from the lovely Petra Boase.

These creatures are very cute for a bedroom or for a children's party.  From £2.25 in the boutique here.

My favourite, more grown-up one is this flower ball:

Made from bright, crisp environmental paper, they are a traditional paper balloon design from Japan . Each balloon comes flat and you simply blow in the hole to expand to its circular shape character .The balloons can be flattened and blown up over and over again.  A unique way to decorate and a lovely gift idea.

This is part of our Wednesday Woo blog post series where we present a selection of our favourite things from the Sisters Guild Boutique.

We also have a Monday Makery with ideas for things to make yourself.

The Art of Living posts bring you all the things we are passionate about and the things we discover in our lives as mamas.
