**Birthday Decorating Idea!!**

When I say "birthday party" what is the first image in your head? For many of you, it was likely balloons! They are a classic and fun way to decorate and kids love them. Balloon Time sells helium kits that allow you to make your child's birthday (or any special event) extra special by allowing you to fill helium balloons right from the comfort of your own home. Their products include a 30 & 50 Helium Balloon Kit, A La Carte Tanks in small and large, Create-A-Face Sticker Kit, Create-A-Party Balloon Packs, and Combo Foil and Latex Kits.

**Review:**I was given a voucher for a free helium kit and found a 30 balloon size at my local Walmart. My son had his first of two parties this past weekend (I love throwing parties so much that my kids are thrown family and friend parties every year) and his theme was Legos. Since I was unable to find any decorations with that theme, it was up to me to be creative and balloons were perfect. Since Legos are made with primary colors, this became the way to decorate.

The balloons were really easy to inflate. The switch to turn the helium on was a little tricky and I do not have a lot of strength in my hands. I used a rubber jar opener and that did the trick. True to the box, it filled exactly 30 balloons and there was just enough ribbon to tie them. The colors were a mix of pastels & primary colors so I used many balloons from another pack because I wanted to keep the primary color theme. After blowing them up, I used favor boxes that I decorated with Jack's picture and some LEGOs and used them (with some rocks) as balloon weights. The result was great and really helped make the party that much more festive!
