New Theme: Balloons

Today we have a unique addition to the WordPress.com themes collection – Balloons is a charming theme by Chris Magiera.

Balloons

Let your imagination soar – or, perhaps more accurately, float – amongst these playfully parallaxed balloons. The simple one-column design makes this theme perfect for a microblog, if short-and-sweet suits your tastes. The childlike style also lends itself well to showing off those photos of your adorable kids (Grandma will thank you).

Catch your own bunch of Balloons on the Theme Showcase!

    Looks OK! I still like Oxygen best, but this one’s nice if you want something laid-back and simple. :-)

    That is such an adorable theme! I would’ve loved to use it, but the one column thing is a deal-breaker for me. :(

    I love the fonts in this theme! Is there any way I can get balloons off the screen? Everything’s falling into place with the look. The only snag is the floating balloons. :(

    One column is something that I do not prefer but with this new theme, I’ll make an exemption. I so love the fonts used in this blog. So, I am using it now. I guess the balloons suits perfectly for my blog, celebrating simple and special moments of life. Thanks WordPress! You never failed to impress me.

    The grey color for the background is great. I’m still scrolling the blog up and down to see the balloons move on the blog up and down. It’s a very unique idea. Nice work on this theme.

    Very nicely done theme. I wonder if there is a theme for a tech blog where code snippets can be posted?

      You can always post code using the tag regardless of the theme you're using! If you're looking for a "tech"-y design, you might have some luck poking around the Theme Showcase -- a search for "tech" pulls up quite a few. :)
