Balloon Invitations

Love this helium balloon invitation from On Hand Modern. She says the helium didn’t stay in the water balloon for more than a few minutes but I think if you used these tiny balloons it might work–they last a couple hours. Long enough to deliver the invitation and get the right effect. I love this idea so much I wish I’d thought of it.

[A tip: use very thin thread when working with small balloons since even a normal sized string weighs them down.]

    Absolutely brilliant! Imagine the smiles this must have bought to the recipients faces!

    Oh I love that. I bet dental floss would work well, or sewing thread

    Oh I LOVE this. I went to your old post but I didn't see any link for the balloons. Do you remember where you bought them?

    Any party supply store or balloon store will have them. Just call ahead.

    Oh! That is such a cute idea! I'm not a creative party person at all, but I'd love to do this!

    Love this too. If I called my local Party America, would I simply refer to them as "mini balloons" and they would know what I was talking about? I've never seen these either.

    I've thought of using this idea in the past. Don't you think it'd be the perfect way to announce a pregnancy? Or at least announce the gender?

    There is a spray that can be used inside the balloons to make them last longer – florists use it – I'm not sure what it's called, but it would be great for this!

    great tip about the mini balloons, jordan. they are larger than the water balloons i used, but small enough to have a similar effect. and it sounds like they definitely last longer! very good point about the thin string also.

    thanks for the shout and the lovely comments from everybody.
