This is one of my favorite “romantic” DIY ideas. It’s cheap and super easy.
All you need are pictures of you and your significant other together, cute notes, balloons, string/ribbon, and tape.
Get a helium-filled balloon for each picture or note you want to hang. Either punch a hole on the note / picture and tie the string of the balloon through it, or tape the bottom of the string to the top of the picture or note. As long as the balloon is full enough of helium (which it should be), the pictures will hover slightly from the ground. Fill a room with these balloon notes and surprise your special someone by bringing them into the room. It’s a super romantic surprise!
Doonesbury creator Garry Trudeau sat down with Fresh Air’s Terry Gross to talk about his new collection of strips about Donald J. Trump. The Republican presidential candidate first appeared in Doonesbury in 1987 – when he began floating trial balloons about a presidential run.
The sweet scent of roses woke you up slowly, a groan leaving your throat as you sleepily sat up in bed. You opened your eyes and a gasp left your mouth; you needed to blink a few times to make sure you were seeing right.
There were rose petals everywhere, strategically scattered across the floor. Not only that, but red heart balloons floated all across your ceiling, phrases like “Happy Valentines Day” and “For My Sweetheart” written on them.
And there was Cas, standing in the middle of the room with a bashful smile on his face as he held the biggest teddy bear you’d ever seen.
“Will you be my valentine?” he asked abruptly.
A breathless, happy laugh escaped your lips, and you stood up, making your way to your angel boyfriend with a wide grin on your face. God, you didn’t think you could love him any more than you already did, but he was always able to prove you wrong.
“Of course I will,” you grinned, wrapping your arms around his neck as soon as he put the giant bear on the bed. “You know you didn’t have to ask, right? We’re already dating.”
“I didn’t want to be presumptuous,” he admitted shyly. “I wanted to show you how much I love you. I hope this does an adequate job of it.”
You chuckled, resting your forehead on his. “I love you too, sweetheart. And this is perfect, thank you so much.”
