Balloons In Things: Car

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.

    I just wanted to share this – when I got married in Austria, we went to our hotel room and found that the bed was covered in balloons! It was a small hotel room, so we had to push some of the balloons into the closet, etc. And buried underneath the balloons were alarm clocks set for the middle of the night. Such pranksters! [It was really annoying to have to pop them all the next day, though.]

    Balloons make such a large impact! We recently did a pop-up and I did a similar instalment in the window that lark store had originally done for their store opening and it grabbed so much attention (plus they make people so happy!)
