Balloon Box New Year Countdown

Party, Styling, Text and Photos by Confetti Sunshine

It isn’t much of a New Year’s Eve party without an exciting way to celebrate the stroke of midnight — and there isn’t much that is more exciting than a surprise box of helium-filled balloons. Make one big box, or a bunch of small boxes for each kid. Anyway you do it, a surprise of floating balloons is sure to bring a smile to every child’s face.

  3. Tape the top of the box closed.
  4. When the clock strikes midnight, let the kids open the box to see the balloon surprise and celebrate.
