Balloons in Things: Mailbox

Next up in our Balloons In Things Series: a Mailbox! This fun surprise is reserved for friends who have a traditional mailbox. Pack the mailbox with as many balloons as you can fit: 6″ and long skinny balloons are best. When your friend opens it up to get their mail at the end of the day — surprise! Out pops a load of happiness.

Balloons In Things: Mailbox | Oh Happy Day!

If you’re blowing up the balloons ahead of time, make sure you store them in a dark place so they stay fresh. We also recommend investing in one of these... (PS. If you want more ideas: Balloons in a Fridge! Balloons in a Car! Balloons in a Cubicle!)

    Oh man! This makes me wish we had big mailboxes like this in the UK rather than just mail flaps in our doors!

    I can’t imagine anything that would make me happier – or more surprised – than my mailbox filled with balloons! I’m definitely putting this on my bucket list, I would love to do this for someone’s birthday! So much happiness inside such a small space! 🎈

    I love this series. It would make a great public art installation.

    Sooner or later someone is going to point out that this is a violation of Federal law, so I might as well go ahead. It’s so bright and happy that I think it’s worth the risk, though. :-)

    (The law states: “no part of a mail receptacle may be used to deliver any matter not bearing postage, including items of matter placed upon, supported by, attached to, hung from, or inserted into a mail receptacle.” )

      Haha. This was my first thought, too. And I agree–worth the risk.

      Also, I totally need to paint my mailbox now!
