Balloon Centerpiece

Wishing you a beautiful Tuesday!

I love to entertain! I have loved entertaining for many, many years! When my children were little, I occasionally would decorate with balloons. Nothing fancy just small bouquets or blown up balloons sitting around. I remember them and their friends playing with the balloons, such a simple joy for a child. Last week I shared my daughter’s fabulous idea for the Celebration box. That inspired this centerpiece! It is super simple to tailor the decor of a party towards someones likes and interests. For a recent party, I wanted something fun and with a little nostalgia so I decided why not create something with balloons!

I started on the internet searching for how to make a balloon “curve” into a spiral. I found a man on You Tube showing how to make a balloon snake. I visited my local party store to find long skinny balloons and also picked up a small balloon pump. Can I tell you, my daughter and I had a blast! It was so much fun and silliness trying to get these balloons to the shape I was looking for! To make a balloon curvy, you “simply” twist the balloon around your fingers several times and then blow it up, yeah um NO did not happen that way! My husband suggested a paper towel roll and this worked!

I needed a low centerpiece for my round table so everyone could see to chat. I used a large clear, low salad bowl that I own. I first put in silver mylar shreds then a gold star garland around the inside edge then I took different sizes of balloons and placed them in the bowl. It took several tries to get a look I was happy with. Super easy and super economical! The birthday guests loved it and thought it was festive.

Next time you need a quick easy centerpiece or simple decorations that look not so simple, pick up some balloons and a pump! I guarantee if nothing else you will have some good belly laughs! Especially from the ones that get away from you after being blown up and the ones that pop!
