Tis the season for festivities of all kinds – graduations, weddings, cookouts, Father’s Day, Fourth of July celebrations, and the like. With the summer not far away, there are plenty of parties to look forward to in the coming months. From the simple – think of a barbecue with a few close friends – to the sophisticated – like a catered graduation party – nothing spells out celebration more than balloons. And balloons aren’t just for the tyke set anymore. You can easily spice up any party with balloons without dipping too far into your wallet, yet these balls of helium add a party-like atmosphere for even the simplest of gatherings. Include a rainbow of colorful latex balloons for a party without a theme or use the colors of your favorite sports team or school to brighten up your soiree. Stick with black balloons as a gag for a milestone birthday party. You can mix it up with some round mylar balloons, too. Tie these beauties to a chair for your guest of honor or use them as a bright and inexpensive centerpiece to your table. Decorate your mailbox out front so that your arriving guests know exactly where the party is. And remember, balloons rule!
