Who can say no to a balloon? Anyone who knows Ali knows she can’t turn down the whimsical and colorful things. For the last few months, she’s been on a search for super-round balloons: fun for photo shoots, keeping kids occupied and providing company, when necessary.
So when Maeve showed up on her doorstep with three of the huge-est, roundest balloons the human eye has ever laid eyes on, you can imagine Ali’s surprise and excitement. Leave it to Maeve to track down the balloon of Ali’s dreams.
If you ever need a good backdrop for a family photoshoot or maybe just something to stand-in as someone for a practice photo portrait, this balloon will keep you humored.
Gather inspiration from Patricia McDonough and this sketchbook from Ruby Republic. Then go buy your own batch of seriously-huge balloons at this site. It’s not easy to navigate, but start by selecting the yellow balloon at the top of the page that says “balloons,” then scroll down to “Balloons By Shape or Character” and browse the gazillions of pages for the colors you like. Make sure the balloons you select look round; you can tell by looking at the teaser photos—the balloons you want will be truly circle-shaped. You can also try Zurchers (389 W. 1830 South #300 and 1102 E. Fort Union Blvd), where they are available in limited quantities.
Have a happy weekend.
