Most birthday parties revolve around a stack of sugar: The birthday cake! What if you want something a little lighter for your fête this year? Why not take an idea from Brittany at Oh Happy Day and throw a fruit party, complete with charming balloon fruit garland?
The idea here is simple: Cut up some ordinary fruit, like apples, oranges, and grapes — and ask your guests to bring something more exotic (think passionfruit, cherimoya, dragonfruit, even durian, if you want to be bold!). Everyone gets to taste something new and something that satisfies their sweet tooth in a healthier way.
And you also have these balloon garlands to amp up the festivities. These are amazingly cute, but not difficult to create: Just blow up balloons and tie them up with paper leaves.
