Big Round Balloon Contest

This picture is from Martha Stewart Weddings Fall 2004. I can not tell you how long I spent trying to source these balloons. This came out about six months before I got married and I called everywhere and googled just about everything. I sort of pride myself on being able to find things on the internet. Its one of the few quantifiable talents I have. So when I couldn’t find it, I was so sad. SO, now I’m throwing it out into the blogosphere. Does anyone know where to get these wonderful balloons?

The first person that can give me a website or confirmed telephone number of where to purchase these gets a special surprise package from me. (it will be pretty cool but don’t get too excited, its not like a million dollars or anything.)

You can either post your answer as a comment or email me (via the email on my profile.) The winner will get their special surprise package about mid August.

HINT: Don’t try to google any combination of “big round balloons”, it will do you no good–I’ve already tried.

    Did you call the editor in charge of the article to ask where the balloons came from?

    I didn’t call but I emailed them and I looked at their guide in the bag of the magazine.

    We have a pretty spectaular cub scout leader that decorated with yellow oversize balloons at the pinewood derby. It was the pinewood derby of my dreams.

    This is an old post, but it came about my search when I was looking for round balloons. Like you, I've been obsessing about them for ages now!! So thank you for doing it (I did it on Facebook but no one knew how to help…) I am going to order me a bunch of those!
