Today is my birthday and although I’m getting up there in years, I can honestly say that I still love balloons! (Remember when we were little and we used to take the latex balloons, blow them up, and then rub them on our hair to get them to stick to the walls!) It’s not a party until the balloons go up, I always say. Rich and shiny colours they are the perfect pick me up for any occasion. At Boodles of Baskets we offer them with a standard base (looks like a wrapped present or birthday hat), attached to a very soft furry plush friend (we have bears, elephants, cats and even a giraffe!) or how about some delicious Hershey’s Kisses or Smarties?! Need them sent to someone? We do something really fun. We put our mylar balloons inside a big shipping box. When the recipient opens the box………they pop out! We can do up to three foil balloons this way (you know the 18″ ones with Happy Birthday, Get Well Soon, New Baby on them) attached to any of the above bases. They are a great affordable gift and can be sent to congratulate someone on the arrival of their new baby, a “Happy Birthday” wish, a “Get Better Soon” wish , “I love you” or “been thinking about you” gift. And after all, who doesn’t like to receive balloons?!
