This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.

This custom content if it is not clothing, may require a seperate download to work properly. This is available at Colour Enable Package (CEP) by Numenor.

These are recolors of the party balloons that came with celebration stuff. I made most holidays, I also made some for other occasions including a baby shower, twins baby shower, graduation, congratulations, anniversary, condolences (I'm sorry ), get well soon, christening (girl,boy), 1st birthday and sweet 16 birthday. They are all labeled so you can delete the ones you don't want.

Brilliant! Such a great idea. Definitely falls under the "I did not know I've been wishing for it until I got it". Really, great idea and very nicely made.

I sense a massive rise in balloon-usage in my households.

Thank you so much everyone, I love these balloons but maxis didn't give us a selection. I have a sim who is expecting twins and I created a small lot just for baby showers so I got the idea for a twins balloon. I made the rest of the holidays for people who decorate their houses for the holidays. I take requests, if there is a specific balloon you want, let me know and maybe I can make it.
