I love 36" balloons.  They make a huge impact and instantly make a party or event more festive.  I can't look at these without smiling.  They are also a great canvas to write sentiments on.  For the above balloon, I used my new Silhouette machine by Cameo (So excited to have this- more in a later post) to cut out the word happy.  I originally simply printed a big BOO on full label sheet on my printer to make this Halloween balloon.

But..... before I could get a great photo of it,

it flew away.  Balloon sentiment kits are available in my shop.  Use the sentiments if you wish.  The balloons, without or without the words, are the perfect decoration for any party.

And speaking of happy- As I edited the photos for this post, I thought about all the things in Bloom making me happy right now.

- I reached 500,000 page and hit  3,100 Facebook friends last week.
- My Eat, Pink and Be Married Party was recently featured in Ocala Style Magazine (a Florida magazine)
- One of my parties was just featured on The Little Big Company and pinned by Kate Landers both of whom I admire immensely. They are ah-mazing party planners.
-And, guess what I'm doing this weekend?  A photo shoot for a post I did last year. A national magazine with a big publisher asked me if they could use my idea.

I am most grateful though for you, my readers and sweet friends.  Thank you for being here each day.  You make me happy!

A few more ideas for Halloween then on to Thanksgiving. I have a complete printable line ready for you!

So much to be thankful here in Bloom.


  1. Jenny, Congratulations on the many wonderful things that are "in bloom!"

  2. WOW!!! That is so exciting!!!
    Ok, question for you... What's the difference between the Silhouette and the Cricut? I'm asking for one for my birthday, but not sure what the difference is?
