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.
Jul 24th at 8:23 pm
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.

I liked it, but it isn’t surprising.

This is my new favourite theme
Jul 25th at 1:53 am
What a great idea and the suggestion for the little ones to post is perfect, thanks.

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?

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!!!!!
Jul 25th at 3:23 pm
The theme is awesome but any chance of getting two widget bars to the left and right?
Jul 25th at 4:48 pm
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!
Jul 25th at 5:07 pm
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.
Jul 25th at 8:46 pm
Cute! I’m pretty happy with my current theme, but this is nice and simple.
Jul 25th at 10:09 pm
Oooooo…….pretty! Why must there be so many amazing themes to make my theme decisions hard??? Why???
Jul 25th at 11:56 pm
What a cute theme! Totally love it and am activating it now
Jul 26th at 2:26 am
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?

Hey, do any of you know how to change a theme?
Jul 27th at 10:50 pm
I used this theme for my wedding blog! It worked perfectly with a few tweaks of the CSS. I love the balloons!
Jul 28th at 2:12 am
By far my favorite theme so far! Thank you so much! (And so happy it’s free!)
Jul 28th at 3:44 pm
Cute. Yes, grandma will like this.

Now, that is a beautiful theme. Congratulations Chris! A truly well-deserved inclusion.

Nice! Well done!
Jul 30th at 4:18 pm
Very nice, where is the color?
Jul 30th at 10:13 pm
Do you do themes for wedding pages too?
Jul 31st at 8:34 pm
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.
Jul 31st at 10:10 pm
Very nicely done theme. I wonder if there is a theme for a tech blog where code snippets can be posted?
Aug 1st at 5:14 am
More one-column themes please! There can’t be enough!!
Aug 1st at 7:37 am
Hey, it’s nice… can you make the balloons as a static background?
Aug 1st at 8:24 am
I like this a lot. It’s perfect for the online book I am planning to write, nice and simple!

This is really cute

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.
Aug 2nd at 10:16 am
I love it! It’s really cute and clean. One thing I like most is the font style.
