Birthday Balloons in a Box

Birthdays are a big deal in our house.  So when the birthday girl is a college student and not in the house, the party goes to the girl.  I mailed this huge box to my daughter at school, with each birthday balloon containing a special surprise.

The balloons were filled with money (rolled up bills), gum, erasers, mascara, bubbles, a ninja, a mustache, candy, pens, a crazy straw, lip gloss and more.

I used 9-inch and 12-inch round balloons from a party store as they were thicker than those I first tried from the dollar store.  The 9-inch were perfect for rolled up bills, and the 12-inch, with patience, worked for the small toys.  The ninja was the toughest, but everyone should have a ninja in their life.

I taped a safety pin inside her card for ease of popping.

Her Facebook post.

Happy birthday, Sweet Pea!

This is a great idea! I can't wait to use it for my boys.
