Birthdays can be full of surprises, whether good, bad, or straight up inappropriate. But it’s not usually grandma who comes up with the last category. For Izabella Rivera’s 22nd birthday, however, it was her grandmother’s gift that made the most shocking statement of the night.

In a photo tweeted out by the birthday girl’s sister Ariana, their grandma is seen holding a bouquet of balloons that she kindly brought for her granddaughter, not realizing the messages on the balloons are, to say the least, wildly inappropriate.

“My grandma who doesn’t speak English showed up with some birthday balloons for my sister…” Ariana tweeted, letting the words on the balloons speak for themselves.

Their grandma is from Mexico, Ariana tells Yahoo Lifestyle, explaining that a language barrier was the reason behind the mixup. While the family later found out that the balloons were given to her as a gag gift during a white elephant gift exchange, they were able to piece together that she had assumed they said “Happy birthday” and “Celebrate!” — or something like that. Luckily, the friends and family at the party had a good sense of humor about it, and grandma did, too.
