Pimp Your Crib: Hot Air Balloons


It's fairly easy to find bunnies, trains, or princess inspired decorations for baby's room so why isn't it easy to find that perfect little accent to complete the nursery.

I was given a hanging hot air balloon as a gift and admit that I wasn't sure what to do with it. So I hung it and loved it. It fits perfectly in the room – and is a unique conversation piece.

The museum quality Authentic Models Hot Air Balloon Royal Aero costs $68 for the large version and $30 and $15 for smaller ones. Similar to a real hot air balloon, it comes with a rattan basket and hand knotted netting. And for authenticity's sake, the largest (and most expensive) version has sandbags. Not to worry, the sandbags won't weigh this balloon down. It is lightweight and a cinch to hang. They come in colors to suit any décor – blue, green, yellow, red and rainbow.
