The party is over and you’re left with the cigarette buds, empty beer bottles and dying balloons... Sad face.

But even distressed party hosts should have the conscious to recycle. There’s really no excuse, a recycling center is found in almost every corner of Dubai. But before you throw out those balloons in with the plastics, here’s something slightly challenging but so much fun! All you need is a pair of scissors,  glass cups or small jars.

1. Cut the balloon tip slightly.
2. Place it over the glass cup.
3. For the stubborn ones that keep tearing, use two!
4. Add one flower to each vase and voila! how pretty?
