Love Is In The Air


Have you ever wondered how to keep that Valentine's feeling all year 'round?

We are now a full 9 days post-Valentine's Day and the helium-filled foil balloon is still going strong in its spot at the highest ceiling point in our house where it drifted after a certain toddler (who got the balloon at church) took the string off.

The love?

It fills our home, ever hovering there above us!

Anyone wanna make a guess at how long 'til it comes down? My money's on 4th of July!

  1. That's awesome! We have the same balloon, still attached to its string...so I guess when mine hits the ground I'll know yours has come down too.

  2. If this was my house I would hear "boon, boon, boon" constantly until I went and got a 20ft ladder to get it down for the Bud. Balloons are his favorite thing.

  9. LOL Your house is full of love. :-) Maybe you could get a mylar balloon for each of the holidays and just let them all collect in the same spot. LOL

    Happy WW! :-)

  15. If it's as long lasting as the balloon we recently got from Home Depot, you're looking at NEXT Valentine's Day!

  17. If you really want to get it down, get another helium balloon (like at the dollar store) and stick loops of masking tape on the top with sticky side out. Put the balloon on an extra long piece of string and unwind it until it hits the other balloon. The tape will grab it and bring it down with the other one.
    Just in case it bothers you too much. :-)
