It’s almost Derby time, folks! I would love to go to the Kentucky Derby someday… solely for the hats! But for those of you who might not be attending, but rather throwing a party of your own in it’s honor, I’ve gotten some schnazy gold horseshoe balloons for you! I got pretty fancy with gold leaf on these babies and you can find the full tutorial over on Balloon Time’s (new! amazing!) site. Check it out!

That gold leaf technique would be pretty fantastic numbers, letters or other shapes too! But for now, let’s all get our Derby party on!

This is such a cute idea! I can totally see these being perfect at a Derby party (oh boy you can tell Im from Kentucky lol).
Ahhh! So cute. Love the painted horse balloon weights too.

Very cute balloons. I hope one day I can celebrate at the actual derby. 🙂
Ahhhh! This is too perfect! I was born in Louisville, and the Derby is by far the my favorite sporting event. I always have a little viewing party, and I’m going to have to make these balloons this year! The pony weights on the bottom are perfection!
