ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — All it takes it a bit of air, a knot, and a customized quote to create a different type of Valentine's Day balloon.
"One of my favorites is the lips balloon that says, 'kiss off,'" Brianna Lewis said, laughing. She's the co-owner of Urban Balloons by Dawn.
The mother-daughter duo, Lewis and her mom Dawn Warnack, make anti-Valentine's Day balloon arrangements.
"I love all the sayings," Lewis said. "Being sarcastic and saying something to somebody that maybe you wouldn't normally say."
Their balloons make the perfect surprise for someone who may have deflated your heart.
"It's kind of a sneaky way of telling somebody something because they don't actually have to deliver it, we deliver it for them," Warnack said. "So we just tell them who it's from and it's kind of a back stab without having to actually be there. Not be the person to give it to them."
The balloons have messages like "you blew it," "what's love got to do with it?" and the not-so-cynical "I've got nothing better to do."
So if you happen to receive an anti-Valentine balloon arrangement...
"I'm just delivering the message, don't shoot the messenger," Warnack said.
The arrangements cost anywhere from $20 up to $250. They also have pro-Valentine's Day designs as well.
