I think we’ve probably all had a birthday party with a sad bunch of purple balloons. Or maybe you were even lucky enough to score a metallic mylar butterfly then you kept it until its wings went limp and it was graceful no more. Familiar?

Balloons were a staple of childhood parties, and I’m here to remind you that they’ve grown up. They’re bigger, grander, and pretty enough to fit in at a formal wedding. Balloons deserve another chance, and your parties deserve balloons. I for one can’t wait until my next birthday so I can fill my apartment with them. You can bet I’ll leave them up until they give out and fall to the floor.
