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

Balloons theme is so cute it just may ‘cheer up’ the Devil.
What an interesting theme. I’m going to have fun playing with it in my test blog.
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.
It is nice.
Another one for the girls…
That’s such a cute theme! I really like it.
I liked it, but it isn’t surprising.
I just activated on my blog! It’s so cute, I love it! :D
Nice themes. ;)
Balloons always bring excitement! Very Nice!
Super layout for a casual blog – great design.
I just activated this theme and I am in LOVE with it! Thank you!
You are amazing! Thank you so much!
Super nice! Amazing! I’m using it on my blog now. :)
This is my new favourite theme :)
What a great idea and the suggestion for the little ones to post is perfect, thanks.
Balloons on my bday, thanks… :) Though I’m growing up now… haha
It’s cute. :D
Celebrate your life!
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.
Too many “cutesy” themes lately. Are designers affected by the recession and the hot summer?
Good theme! :-)
I just activated this theme. Thank you so much. Have a good day ~
I’ve decided to use this theme, I love it, but I’d really love it if my widgets could go on the side and the writing was a little big bigger!!!!!
The theme is awesome but any chance of getting two widget bars to the left and right?
Simply nice looking theme, it’s easier for the reader to focus on the posting because it only has a one-column design. Great work!
Love this theme and activated it to my blog. I do wish there was a balloon beside each post that had the post date…that would be adorable.
Cute! I’m pretty happy with my current theme, but this is nice and simple.
Oooooo…….pretty! Why must there be so many amazing themes to make my theme decisions hard??? Why???
What a cute theme! Totally love it and am activating it now :)
I came back onto WordPress on the perfect day. These balloons are perfect for my message website. What perfect timing. Can the color of the balloons be changed? Oh, I just gotta go get busy on it. Thank you, thank you. I love it’s simplicity, yet, beauty. Marvelous!
Wait, it’s for free, right?
So cute :)
I LOVE IT!!
The Clarences love & support Balloons!
Hey, do any of you know how to change a theme?
I used this theme for my wedding blog! It worked perfectly with a few tweaks of the CSS. :) I love the balloons!
By far my favorite theme so far! Thank you so much! (And so happy it’s free!)
Cute. Yes, grandma will like this. ;)
Now, that is a beautiful theme. Congratulations Chris! A truly well-deserved inclusion.
Nice! Well done!
Very nice, where is the color?
Do you do themes for wedding pages too? :)
More themes like this, please! Love the “sketch” like quality of the headings. If this allowed for another column for widgets it would be perfect.
Very nicely done theme. I wonder if there is a theme for a tech blog where code snippets can be posted?
More one-column themes please! There can’t be enough!!
Hey, it’s nice… can you make the balloons as a static background?
I like this a lot. It’s perfect for the online book I am planning to write, nice and simple!
Cute theme. :)
This is really cute :D
I like the theme a lot, as every little balloon can symbolize an idea or whim I have… that is lovely as a start-off point for my new blog, too. :)
I love it! It’s really cute and clean. One thing I like most is the font style.
Very nice theme!
