Balloons can be wonderful and may be considered standard children’s birthday party decoration accessories. But balloons are not for everyone. Infract Globophobia, the fear of balloons is a very real condition. Not to mention that some people just don’t like balloons for no other reason than they don’t like balloons.
Don’t rule out globophobia, this can be a life-suppressing problem, imagine never attending a children’s birthday party for fear of the natural presence of balloons. Well actually balloons are a bit weird, it’s just not correct to find a seemingly solid shiny object floating in the air.
Even without the balloonphobia condition, balloons can be scary. The sudden loud noise they make when they explode is quite scary for many. The room suddenly goes silent and he jumps, the heart stops. This is not a good thing for someone who might have a heart condition and very painful for someone who wears a hearing aid.
Parents of young children may also be concerned about the dangers a balloon can present on a child’s birthday. A teething baby will perch on anything that catches his eye, no doubt that soft and shiny ball attracts his attention. Perhaps a piece of the balloon that breaks off could catch on the baby moth. Babies will taste everything. An already broken balloon looks like something that might be delicious to try.
Balloons are NOT the only way to decorate a child’s birthday party. There are many amazing new ways to dress up your home or garden for a party.
Garden or lawn decorations are an ideal decorating idea without having to use balloons. You can buy these ready-made, order a few to create new ones on your theme, or even make them yourself very easily using heavy cardboard or lightweight craft board.
Try some smiley faces the size of a dinner plate, or some barn yard cartoon characters – anything bright and colorful. If you have a kids birthday party theme, make a few on your theme.
Marking smiley faces on paper plates is the easiest way to do it, but if you’re interested in making your own garden art from scratch, it’s a lot easier than you might think. Draw or trace some easy cartoon-like images on a lightweight craft board or heavy cardboard, paint and cut them out, then glue them to the walls or stake them on the ground. When looking for great images, try some clip art found on the internet or even images found in children’s color books give great results.
Streamers at a child’s birthday party are always popular. Detangle rolls and rolls of streamers of all colors and simply sprinkle everywhere. It is best to cut them into 1 to 2 foot strips to decrease the chance of someone tripping over them. Hang them over everything from the ceiling fan to the trees. Don’t worry if some fall to the ground, the disorganized color is what makes this work.
Brightly colored cellophane and tissue paper look amazing too. To put this into practice, grab some wire hangers or form, craft wire to create shapes of squares, stars, circles, and even random spots. Hang them or plant them in pots and on the lawn.
If you’re really feeling crafty, you could make some papier-mâché balloons a few weeks in advance. You don’t need to make them thick and heavy; A few layers of paper will do, and finish with brightly colored paint.
If you’re really looking to add a little sparkle to your kid’s birthday party decor, don’t forget your Christmas ornament boxes – a few pieces of tinsel wrapped around a tree really liven up a party yard. Some brightly colored plastic stars or tree ornaments – anything shiny and shiny will do.
Beach balls are also an ideal way to light up and decorate a room or patio for a child’s birthday party. They are cheap and reusable. Just blow them up and leave them all over the place.
Decorating a kids birthday party without balloons isn’t that difficult when you just try a little imagination, think bright and colorful, and you’re halfway there.
