Last Friday was my boyfriends birthday, and in an attempt to bring some festivites in - I bought a dozen balloons and had them all in the kitchen. Not even a day later, these balloons were down on the ground. I thought that this was hilarious. Joe had put them all in the corner of the kitchen near the back door to keep them out of the way. They looked like they were trying to get out. It was the most pathetic set of balloons I've ever seen and I just had to photograph them. This mini series is called "Death of a Birthday Party".
