Birthday Bedroom Balloons!

For Molly's birthday I wanted to do something with balloons, since my girls LOVE balloons. First I thought I would blow up a bunch of balloons and fill the floor in her room with them, but then I rethought that idea, since I would probably end up policing the 1 year old all day not to play rough with them!

Then I saw this AWESOME idea (well surfing Pinterest) from A Girl and A Boy to thread a strand of balloons and hang them from the ceiling!!! LOVE!!!

I bought 3 packs of balloons at Walmart for .97 cents each, had my husband blow them up, (thanks babe) then just threaded them into three long strands. Instead of hanging them with thumbtacks, I used Command Decorating clips since Molly's walls are smooth and I wanted to be able to remove them. So Easy!

We actually did this well she was sleeping since she is such a heavy sleeper, and in the morning she was SO thrilled. Both her and Nora were laying in her room staring at the balloons all day! This will definitely be a new tradition!

  2. I LOVE that idea! I had thought about doing the balloons on the floor as well, but maybe the ceiling would be better! How fun!

    I'm so glad we got to chat today! If only we could have had more time! :)

  3. Instead of threading them, you can tie the knot around the line. :)
