DIY Easter Basket Invitations

Party, Styling, Text and Photos by Confetti Sunshine


We love using 5-inch balloons for party invitations. They are such a fun way to get your little guest really excited. So, for Easter the obvious choice was to create a sweet little Easter basket complete with an egg and mini balloon.

Note: the 5-inch balloons only float for 2-3 hours at the most. We created a balloon kit to take in our car. That way we would be able to fill up the balloons right before delivering the invitation.





  1. Write your party details onto the small metal tins using the permanent markers.
  2. Fill the metal tin with the grass and Easter egg.
  3. Place the metal tin invitations, 5-inch balloons, string, and scissors in a basket. Put the basket and Balloon Time Helium Tank in the car.
  4. Once at a guest’s house, fill a 5-inch balloon with helium and tie it to the metal tin invitation.
  5. Deliver the Easter basket invitation to your guest!


Show off your Easter invitations with our party planning communities on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram!


Note: Adult supervision is required when using balloons. Please read all warnings and precautions on the Balloon Time carton.
