We planned a whole series of Balloons in Things that we started last year and then never got around to doing them. But ……it’s back! Our favorite thing is to put a bunch of balloons somewhere unexpected for someone’s birthday or even for a happy surprise on a random Tuesday. It is hilarious. This time we filled up my beloved red FIAT 500 with balloons. It takes an hour or two to fill them up but surprising someone with a car full of balloons is so fun.
You can blow up balloons the day before you need them and as long as you store them in a dark place they will stay fresh. Have you ever stuffed someone’s car with balloons before? We used to pull this prank in high school. Luckily the joke never got old.
