DIY Fruit Balloons

Oh Happy Day

This adorable balloon garland set the scene for a fruit party; each guest brought an exotic fruit and the hosts provided a bounty of quotidian produce. We think it would be a great design element for a kids' party.

Brittany made her garland with balloons, green paper for leaves, twine, tape, and scissors. Balloons were inflated to various sizes to reflect the scale of their respective fruits (long balloons were perfect for bananas) and leaves were cut out from paper, creased and taped onto balloons. See the play by play at Oh Happy Day.
