have no plans for tonight? here’s an idea. go out and buy a bunch of balloons and then invite your friends around. you are guaranteed to have the BEST TIME EVER as evidenced by this series i discovered in the LIFE archives, photographed in 1948 by Martha Holmes.

  1. These photos are AMAZING. So classic! And fun. I have a feeling things would get way too inappropriate over here, though. We’ll see.

  2. What an amazing glimpse of the past… These people surely knew how to have fun haha!

    • I found these pictures posted from a balloon forum. Its very interesting from the perspective of a balloon twister to see folks perception of our art back then. The art form has certainly moved on!
