This is great for a birthday.


  • 15 balloons
  • 15 photos
  • 15 mounting papers
  • 15 ribbons

  1. Print photos, 1 for each year of your child's life. I did this project for a 15 year old. adhere them to mounting paper and punch a hole in the top.
  2. Order helium balloons with a ribbon attached.
  3. Attach the photo to the balloon. Place balloons over your child's bed. Makes a great surprise for them.

  • Balloons are wonderful to celebrate all kinds of occasions. Thank you.


  • Great idea for those milestone birthdays such as 18th and 21st. I could even see these being used at funerals


  • So fun, just don’t let the little kids run through them like they did at my 21st!


  • This is such a great idea…


  • What a fantastic idea. So many milestone birthdays have photo pin up boards. This way you kill two birds with one stone. Balloons for decoration and photos. And there’s no damage done to the pictures


  • This would be a great memory to share

    • Trying to pick a picture for one year or month will be hard as there are so many nice ones to choose from


  • I love this idea!!! Would be cute to even tie a small gift to the balloon! Definitely going to use this idea!


  • love this idea and will use this for first birthday of my son.


  • My sister did this for her engagement, with little polaroid pictures, it looked so good! And everyone got to take one as a keepsake!


  • This is the best post l have seen,just brilliant!


  • Great thought and helium balloons last and last so it will be a special reminder of a happy day. Thanks


  • wow what a fantastic personalised idea


  • They look beautiful. Parents have so much imagination now. I have some catching up to do. I am glad these are well anchored. Within the last few weeks there has been a warning about a child helping to blow one up that was leaking air and had fun but inhaled the gas that had accumulated. I think it was on this site.


  • Thanks for sharing; this really would make for a beautiful surprise!.


  • This is a great idea thanks for sharing
