This is a perfect little idea Alison came up with. Mini Balloon Placecard Holders are so cute it is almost too much (like balloons couldn’t get any cuter, they had to make mini balloons!) Because they’re smaller, 5″ balloons don’t stay inflated as long as bigger balloons. But, their life-span is perfect for surprising guests at your next party. Attach them to calligraphed placecards so each person can have their own!
Materials: 5″ Balloons, String, Helium, Paper, Scissors, Double Sided Tape
Step 1: Inflate balloons with helium. Tip – Wait until just before the start of the party as the 5” balloons don’t last as long as larger size balloons.
Step 2: Tie balloons with string. Trim them to the same length.
Step 3: Create, then cut out nametags.
Step 4: Attach the nametags to the balloon string.
Step 5: Anchor the balloons to the place setting with double sided tape. We found it necessary to attach them to the table, as they were so light and easily floated away when someone walked by.
(P.S. Remember when Moses and I surprised Paul at work with a bundle of mini balloons? Oooh, he was such a cute baby!)
