Oliver'??s first birthday party is getting closer and closer. As you can imagine there has been a lot of perusing through Etsy and I'??ve suddenly figured out everyone'??s obsession with Pinterest along the way. This led me to my latest covet item: Geronimo Balloons (yes, balloons can be covet-worthy!). I'??ve always been a balloon lover. They'??re always always a room booster in my book, and it seems by the excitement on Oliver'??s face everytime he sees them that he feels the same way. But Geronimo balloon-troopers takes the celebration aspect of balloons to a whole new eye-catching level.
Founded by Certified Balloonatic and Master Balloon-Trooper, Jihan '??Jihanimo'? Zencirli, Geronimo was originally started as a way to celebrate Jihan'??s friends and family. Lucky for us in 2011 Jihan opened her Los Angeles studios and has made the helium-filled joy available for all to share.

Each 36'? balloon is adorned with it'??s own unique creation of fine ribbon, vintage millinery and hand cut paper fancy. You have the choice of either picking up your balloons at their studio (if you live in LA) or having them sent via FedEx to you. And if you hate waste as much as Jihan does you can participate in their recycling program where if you return fancy frill in good and reusable condition they'??ll provide a credit of $10 toward your next Geronimo Balloon order. They donate the materials to Los Angeles public school classrooms to be reused for art projects and fun. Go ahead... you know you want to pin these.
