So, at the risk of sounding incredibly simple- I love flowers. I love balloons. They are awesome. Together they are unbeatable.
Combining the two for the perfect Valentine’s Day bouquet (or really, any holiday- anniversary, birthday…) is so simple and a personal touch to your gift!
Fill a small glass bowl with water and place in berry basket. Cut flowers to size and fill basket/bowl.
Blow up balloon with helium, tie two strands of twine and secure to opposite sides of basket using washi tape.
I used a MINI heart balloon, so it could not take much weight- it could not handle more than two strands of twine attached to it. For a better “hot air balloon” use a bigger heart balloon to tie multiple strands of twine to basket.
Also, the small heart balloon will not last long, so use it as a centerpiece at lunch/dinner and a surprise when you first gift the flower bouquet. When the heart begins to “wilt” remove and be perfectly happy and content that just flowers in a berry basket still look awesome:
