Inside: How to make a birthday balloon bouquet idea.

Looking for a fun way to celebrate a dear friend’s birthday? Send them a birthday balloon bouquet made of sweet and kind sayings from their favorite people. I came up with this idea for a recent friend’s birthday and recreated it to photograph and share. It is an easy way to get everyone close to the birthday girl involved in wishing them the happiest!

How to Make Birthday Balloon Bouquets

To create the balloon bouquets you will need

  • small envelopes with cards,
  • balloons,
  • stamps
  • larger envelopes

Start by compiling a list of all the name and addresses you would like to send the package to (a group of the birthday girls closest friends and family is great!). Address and stamp the larger envelopes to this group of people. Then pre-address and stamp each of the small envelopes with the birthday girls address. Put a tiny -do not open until- note on the back of each little envelope.

Next, you will need to write out a note of instruction. I wrote mine right on the inside of the envelopes but you could easily include a paper note instead. Copy the little poem above (I won’t tell:) or right up your own directions to send.

The sending packages should each include a little envelope with card, instructions and a balloon! Be sure to send in plenty of time for family and friends to get these back in the mail. I would suggest about 2 weeks before the birthday.

That is all you need to give your favorite friend the most uplifting of birthday presents! The friends/families you send the package to should follow your instructions, write out kind/fun sayings and send off their balloons bouquet. As the envelopes come pouring in and the balloons are blown up, they will create a complete bouquet of encouraging words and sweet sentiments for the birthday girl.

    Question for you or your readers:
    When I have tried writing messages on balloons in the past I run into one problem–the ink doesn’t want to stay put….especially after being run through the postal service (more handling=worse). Messages written with Sharpies tend to start shedding dust (like mascara at the end of a day). I’ve also tried acrylic paint pens; they work great if the paint is allowed to dry fully, but sometimes small pieces fall off once the balloon is deflated.

    Any suggestions?
