When planning a photo shoot last week, we found ourselves in dire need of some last minute oomph. We dug through our creative archives  and kept coming back to the eye-catching and festive Geronimo! balloons. While we didn’t have time to reach out to the balloon troopers for one of their original designs, we were able to channel their genius to create our own spin. Three massive balloons & lots of ribbon later… and tada! The perfect prop to liven up our photos shoot. Follow the jump for more photos & the easy instructions.

  1. Fill 3 36 inch balloons with helium & secure.
  2. Cut long strands of  colorful assortment of ribbon in varying lengths. A mixture of widths and textures, with a little metallic thrown in, is key.
  3. Tie ribbons onto balloons.
  4. If we’d had time to make fringe-y strips of tissue, that would have looked great, too.

    Very pretty. This is probably going to sound stalkerish and totally off topic but would you mind sharing your workout routine. The muscular definition in your legs is impressive.
