I love planning party menus.
I could spend hours pouring over recipes, carefully crafting what I’ll serve.
But when it comes to decor, I tend to get stuck.
I am not naturally crafty, so I am always looking for easy ways to add a special touch to my party decor.
With Skye’s birthday around the corner, I am turning to balloons to add a little magic.
I love how balloons are a super-easy way to add whimsy and flair to any celebration.
With the Ballon Time Helium Tank, I can elevate my party decor without stress.
It is so easy.
The first time I used it I was afraid it was going to be difficult. But it isn’t!
(Even the boys can use it with no problems. With supervision, of course!)
I decided to do some cute and festive centerpieces for Skye’s big celebration. She is balloon and flower obsessed, so this is perfect for her.
Flower Balloon Centerpiece
1 Balloon Time Helium Tank
5 balloons of the same color
2 balloons in a coordinating color
3 balloons of any coordinating color
1 small string of battery-operated lights
Fill the first 5 balloons up to almost full with the Ballon Time helium tank, leaving enough room a the end so you can tie them together.
Tie two of the balloons together.
Repeat with the next two balloons.
Take the fifth balloon and wrap the end around one of the two balloons that are tied together and then tie to the other one so that you have a set of three.
Slide the set of two balloons through two of the balloons on the set of three. Twist around one of the balloons from the other set to hold it in place.
Use the Balloon Time helium tank to fill up the next two balloons so that they are smaller than the original five. Tie them together.
Flatten out the set of five balloons and slide the set of two through two of the five balloons. Twist two of the five balloons around the set of two to lock it into place.
Fill the remaining three balloons using the Balloon Time helium tank.
Tie with ribbon and attach to the back of the flower.
Arrange the lights around the flower. For round tables, I recommend making two flowers and setting them back to back.
Next time you have a celebration planned, go out and grab a pink tank and you can create your own magic. Visit BallonTime.com for more tips, tricks, and DIYs.
