Spring has sprung and the tiny flowers of the season are starting to bloom. If your little ones pick you a bouquet of these small treasures then you'll need a vase smaller than normal to give them great looks. Instead of letting them be sad and floppy in a cup, try this quick balloon trick to showcase them front and center!

Camilla over at Family Chic has been popping up all over recently. She shared this fun idea for collecting small bottles to reuse in the kitchen and these table centerpieces made with apples, but this simple idea of using a balloon to provide support for tender blossoms is just out of sight.

Small flowers from your kids are true gifts of the heart, but they always look so sad and lifeless in even the tiniest of cups. Instead, Camilla is using a balloon fitted over the glass to give support and strength to those fragile stems. It looks like it walked out of a designers catalog and you can make it work for any size flower by simply trimming them stems. Check out all the details to create your own over at Family Chic.
