{Pinned there, Done that - birthday edition} Balloon Garland

To be honest, much of this car birthday party was {Pinned there, Done that}... but I digress. So I came across this super fun Balloon Garland over at Young House Love and of course... I pinned it.

Since the party was at the park, I wanted to do some easy decorating, but I didn't feel like spending the money at the party store for some balloon bunches. So I decided to do the balloon garland route.

Originally, I was going to drape it from one end of the park shelter to the other across some beams or something .... but after visiting the shelter and taking some pictures I realized this shelter had NO beams whatsoever; it was solid wood.

However, there were posts... so I decided to alternate crepe paper and balloon garland on the posts surrounding the party. And since the balloon garland could be done at home in advance, it would be relatively easy. See... here is my entryway the day before the party.

Voila. Clearly I should have stepped further back for the full effect, but you can see how it turned out! I just taped the string that the balloons were tied to to the top and bottom of the pole and wrapped everything around.

Side note... for the first 2 garlands, I neatly stuffed them into a large black garbage bag for the travel to the park.... I did not however for the 3rd. SO, this is where it ended up... completely jumbled and untangle-able.
