Are you looking for a special way to say happy birthday, or celebrate an anniversary or Mother’s Day? We’ve found 2 really creative and sweet ideas to show someone how much you care!

Celebrate With A Balloon & Photo/Note For Each Year – This is such a creative and whimsical idea from Bebe a la Mode Designs! She used it to celebrate her anniversary, (be sure to check out her blog for the adorable photos she included) but this would work just as well for a birthday! For each year (age or anniversary) fill up a balloon and tie a personalized note or photo to it. If you are celebrating a birthday, use photos from birthday’s past! Put them in a bedroom or at the breakfast table to surprise your loved ones!
