Making a balloon canopy worked out way better for me than the balloon avalanche I previously pinned. Just tape two garbage bags to the ceiling and tuck the ends into the door. The birthday boy/girl is showered with balloons when they open it.
Balloon avalanche: tape balloons to a closed door. First, loosely tape a clear table cloth or plastic tarp to the door frame. Using painter’s tape will help protect surfaces. Start by taping along the bottom and work your way up – remember to leave room for balloons! When you are almost to the top- add the balloons. Secure top with tape. This is a great birthday surprise idea.
NAILED IT (kinda) Birthday balloon avalanche for when they wake up and open their door!
Did this for my daughter's 8th birthday. Balloon avalanche surprise.
