When she woke up and saw the balloons everywhere we didn't get the initial response we were looking for. She said, "Why is this a mess?" Once we told her that it was ok that her room was a mess with balloons and started playing with them, she decided that it was pretty awesome and had fun with them all day. Check out this awesome bed head.
I got the balloons at Walmart for $4 a bag of 75. A pretty inexpensive way to make a birthday extra special. Also, I used an air pump to blow them up. I am pretty sure I would have died if I had blown them all up by mouth.
And now what it looked like this year. It still looks brand new and will be the perfect birthday sign for every girl birthday at our house. If I ever have a boy, I will make a boy version as well. Until then, this works perfectly for us.
Overall, I like to use inexpensive and simple ways to make a birthday special, and these were perfect for that.
