How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. I love thee to the depth and breadth and height My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight....– Elizabeth Barrett Browning (19th Century Poet)
Though this classic poem is probably talking about romantic love here, these words express so well the sentiment we feel for our moms. No one else on earth showers us with so much unconditional and tireless love as the one we call mom, mum, or mamá. This year, let her know how much you appreciate her with something that will make her smile. There are so many ways to say “I love you” this Mother’s Day.
Does your mom have a sweet tooth, a love of flowers, or a penchant for grandeur? Think about what speaks to your mom the most, and let these colorful ideas inspire your Mother’s Day festivities.
CANDY CUPS Candy cups are a great way to tell your mom she’s the sweetest! Here are some ideas for inspiration.
BALLOON BOUQUETS There are thousands of ways to style a balloon bouquet. Play around with color palettes, textures, stuffing, balloon tails, and more to create that perfect bouquet that will bring a smile to mom’s face. Here are a few ideas depending on your mom’s style:
BALLOON DÉCOR Looking for a way to surprise mom when she walks through the door? How about this sweet decor idea? No helium is required! Simply hang 18" balloons from decorated strings and assemble a small organic cluster of latex balloons inflated to various sizes. To get this chalky pastel look, double-stuff brighter colors inside white.
TABLETOP CENTERPIECE What better way to woo mom than to serve up an elegant lunch or dinner decorated with floral-inspired centerpieces? Inflate a Bubble Balloon®, adorn it with double-stuffed latex inflated to various sizes, and add pops of fresh-cut flowers. Create the main centerpiece structure with any kind of sturdy rod or PVC pipe wrapped in ribbon.
YARD ART Does mom love public displays of affection? Let the world know how much you love her with a yard display! Create a small tower of balloons using a Bubble Balloon® as a topper and latex balloons of varying sizes all the way down the base of your tower. Start with a layer of 5" latex to create the base layer, then inflate 11" latex to varying sizes and secure to the tower. To add extra flair and make it a work of art, adorn the tower with white daisies made of 160Qs and add colorful streamers of ribbons to the bottom.
BALLOON IN A BOX Want to send a smile but can’t see mom in person this year? How about a balloon in a box? Stuff a 24" Deco Bubble with an 11" latex printed with a sweet message, fill both with helium, and you’ve got yourself a 3D greeting card! Add a Twirlz balloon tail, fill your box with paper shred, and add pretty wrapping to the outside.The fun is in the presentation and element of surprise when the balloon springs up out of the box.
