A Balloon Centerpiece

Our granddaughter Moussia is turning seven this week! I created these centerpieces for the birthday party using regular balloons with special cups and sticks.
Here's how I created these without the hassle and expense of helium balloons...
The secret is balloon cups and sticks. You simply loop the end of the balloon into the little cup and place it into the stick. Mine are wood but they also sell plastic.
These are easy to find online at most party supply websites.
I love that I can blow up the balloons days ahead of time and they'll still be perfectly inflated for the party. So much easier transporting these in the car than a dozen helium balloons bobbing in the windows and blocking the view!

  1. I love this post. When I was in college I would use balloons on everything (my sorority kept a tank at all times) from gifts to sweet notes to friends. My interest in balloons waned over the years until a few years back when I became intrigued by the really huge wedding balloons that were all the rage for awhile. I subsequently realized that helium is a depletable natural resource vital for MRI's and some security measures. I have sworn off helium but do miss the look. This is a great way to use balloons with less impact to the earth!

  3. I love this idea. Mazal Tov! I will use it for my son's upshernish. Where did you find your cups and sticks? I tried Michael's and Party City and both stores told me they don't carry these.
