I just had to include one for the kids (although this would be cute for adult milestone birthdays too). It might take a lot of balloons, but you can get them super cheap online! I love the solid color, but I also think a rainbow version would be super cute. You can tailor the color to match your party theme! Visit Oh Happy Day for the DIY!

    That flatware is gorgeous! I can definitely see how that would take some goodwill/yard sale/thrift store finds to the next level.
