When you don’t have a lot of money to spend on decorations for an event, you have to get creative. In particular, I’m talking about children’s birthday celebrations. When money’s tight, it’s all I can do to buy presents for my birthday boy or girl, but I always like to create an atmosphere of celebration.
Basic latex balloons are so inexpensive, it’d be a shame not to employ them! These are not your average 1983 balloons I’m talking about here, but I’m not talking about paying a bundle of money for them filled with helium from a party supply store either! I have hung them upside down from the ceiling, made the streamers and balloons backdrop, and painted them gold. They looked fabulous each time!
My kids’ birthdays happen to be close enough to each other that it makes it worth it to purchase a mini tank of helium from Walmart (for about $30) and blow up a ton of them at home. Leftover helium is easily used to bring a balloon bouquet to a friend that needs a smile. Get creative with balloons and make this inexpensive party item pack a punch for you!
