DIY TIP for Styling your Office Holiday Party with Balloons: Use gold letter stickers to write notes on the balloons. We wrote “Ho Ho Ho”. You could also write your company name; Happy Holidays; Fa la la, etc. Have fun!

Note: Adult supervision is required when using balloons. Please read all warnings and precautions on the Balloon Time carton.
