Football Tailgate Party

My brother-in-law and sister are huge football fans so it was no surprise that they requested a football themed party for my nephew’s 3rd birthday.  His birthday falls right around the start of football season so they set the date for opening day.

Skip the Helium Balloons

Did you know that there is a helium shortage? Last month my friend stopped into the local dollar store to have the balloons she purchased online for her daughter’s birthday party inflated. The problem was, they had no helium nor did the other smaller chain stores in the area. After trying several stores she was told that there is a helium shortage. Hospitals are allowed first dibs and the larger chain stores split the rest of the supply (if there is any left). After spending a pretty penny on some large Mylar balloons she decided not to let them go to waste and ended up purchasing a disposable helium tank.

To skip the headache of tracking down helium, check out these brilliant alternatives to helium balloons.
