"Helium" Balloons on the Cheap

Helium balloons to decorate a party are expensive, and you have to get or fill them on the day of the party. Mylar lasts longer, but is way more expensive. Instead, buy a bag or 2 of latex balloons and a spool of curling ribbon, fill the balloons ahead of time, tie with ribbon, curl the ribbon that hangs down. Then make a circle of Scotch tape, put it on the top of the balloon and stick it on the ceiling.

This works best with standard height ceilings, of course. I did this at a vacation condo the day before the birthday girl arrived to find balloons "floating" all over the unit. Quite a hit! It looked very festive for the cost of a few bags of balloons, some ribbon and tape (under $10, if I remember).
