Along with cake, one of the best bits of my 27th birthday last month was the arrival of this giant, confetti filled, pink and gold tasseled, helium balloon from Balloonatic. Omg, right? It was such a thing of beauty to have floating around! Balloonatic & Co. is a women owned and operated business headed up by the lovely Crystal, who shares my penchant for many of the finer things in life including florals, lace, sparkles, and stationery (day planners especially!). Based in my hometown, Balloonatic do local deliveries and ship their beautiful creations all over Canada. Crystal was so kind as to let me design the balloon of my dreams for a birthday photo shoot; I dressed to match in a pink pinafore from The Whitepepper, shoes from Asos, and a beehive as tall as I could get it.
