Counting balloons

I told you before about birthday traditions in our house. Our house is high and has a lot of stairs. Here you see how we use the high void with our stairs. In the late evening we tend to blow about 30 balloons and decorate the house at once from top to bottom. Depending the child who's having birthday we choose the colors of the balloons.
The pics are showing the moment just after birth of L. We used balloons and plenty of birth announcements for decoration.

I have just discovered your beautiful blog and I've become a follower too.

I love these balloons hung like this simple but so effective. Oh to have lovely high ceilings.

I love your scarf set that you made for your girls. Gorgeous!

My parents immigrated from Holland to America just before my birth and they brought with them this lovely tradition of decorating the house so that when we woke up on out birthday the house was a cheerful surprise. I have since carried the tradition on to my three children. I love this idea and if I can get a tall enough ladder I may just try this next time on my high ceilings. Beautiful and simple!
