Five tips on how to make the most out of your balloon decor

You won't believe this, but…

Before the invention of latex, the first balloons were made from dried animal bladders! In 1824, Michael Faraday saved the day by inventing the first rubber balloon.

Nowadays, people can easily access balloons, which are becoming a staple for most events.

But sometimes, when we need more time or energy to prepare, it's easy to settle for the most common balloon decor. If you resonate with this and want to do something different for your event, there are numerous ways to use and incorporate balloon decorations into your event.

Here are five tips on how you can elevate your events with balloon decor:

  1. Prepare a Balloon Drop or Ceiling Balloons - Finish the night on a high note with a fun balloon drop at your event or party. You'll need a ladder, lots of balloons, a balloon drop net, and a way to attach it to the ceiling. If you helium canister you can use it to create balloon ceiling with helium balloons. For maximum impact, choose balloons in colours that complement your theme.

  2. Create Balloon Columns and Balloon Arches - These are easy to build, and they make a big statement in your event space. Buy a balloon arch or column structure and balloons to fill it. Balloon decorations are available in a variety of colours to match your theme. Replace the balloons with new ones that match your colour scheme. You can reuse the arch and column structures for other events, such as birthdays and anniversaries.

3. Enhance Balloons - Balloon decorations can be simple. There are numerous ways to transform them into unique and elegant decorations for your theme:

  • You can have printed balloons for your party. Aside from being trendy, it saves you a lot of time thinking about what and how to decorate.

  • Tie photos to the bottom of helium balloon strings to create a one-of-a-kind photo collage in the middle of a room.

  • You can add light-up sparkle ribbons to your balloons or consider including fake or real vines and flowers to your balloon structure, which can be stunning in a decor piece.

4. Use Balloons to Express A Theme - Balloons are a great way to maximize your themed décor. They are an easy and inexpensive way to splash just the right colours into specific events. Use white for weddings, rainbow colours for LGBTQI events, or gold for a 50th wedding anniversary.

  1. Throw a balloon bash - Balloon inflation is quick and straightforward if you have a helium tank or air compressor. If you don't have either, inflating balloon decorations become more complicated, and you'll need expert <insert a link to business site>assistance. If you decide to blow them up yourself, don't over-inflate them so they don't pop.
