Sending birthday balloons

[ Edited ]

I'm assuming any florist can arrange to have baloons sent as they would flowers.  I've sent flowers across country often, but before I tried anything else, I thought I would check.

 

These would be for a 6year old's birthday.  I've already sent her gifts, and would like to surprise her with something else on her birthday.

 

Parents won't allow any kind of sweets, so a cake is out.  I'm in Maryland and she is in California.

 

If anyone has any recommendations, I'd appreciate a share.

I don't know what your budget is but Vermont Country bears  has a website where you can choose a bear and have it sent.

It is pricey but they do such a wonderful job. The bear is sent in a box with air holes in it. 

Such fun to buy for kids.

You can send balloons only or with a bear.

Have you looked at 1-800-balloons?  Lots of cute birthday balloon collections to pick from.  It would operate just like ordering flowers or a Vermont teddy bear online.

Re: Sending birthday baloons

I don't know if all florists send balloon bouquets but many FTD florists do.

 

One of my favorite birthday memories was receiving a 51 balloon bouquet for my 50th birthday--one for each year and a "special" one to "grow" on.

The more I learn the more I realize how little I know.
Are you setting an example or being an example?

Balloons?  I’ve been seeing so many Unicorn balloons on

social media...even my grocery store has them at the register.

So big & pretty, especially for a little girl! 🌸🦄
