Balloons and Decorating Ideas
It's amazing how quickly a room can become more festive by simply adding balloons! Balloons can be used in an arch, a column hanging from the ceiling... use your imagination (and the unique features of the party room) and balloons can add atmosphere to any event.
Hang balloons in bunches. If filling the balloons with helium, wait to fill them until the day of the party to ensure they float well. Attach the balloons to light fixtures, hang them in doorways. Tie balloons together with colorful curling ribbon, and curl the ends.
Hang balloons on the mailbox; arrange balloons as decorations at the entrance; or you can tie the balloons to the birthday child's chair.
Garlands – Using air-filled balloons, attach clusters of balloons to a nylon line. When the garlands are desired length, string between the corners of the ceiling, allowing them to drape evenly on all sides of the room.
Shapes – Aluminum rod is the best frame for shaped balloon decorations because it is flexible. Fashion the rod into a heart, number, or other shape before attaching clusters of air-filled balloons.
Columns – Attach clusters of helium balloons to a nylon line and tie down one end. Or, use balloons filled with air and attach them to a vertical frame anchored on a sturdy base.
Do not forget that latex helium balloons only stay afloat for about eight hours. So do this on the morning of the party.
For all these decorations it is best if all the balloons are the same
size. To achieve this cut out a cardboard template and check the size each
time you inflate a balloon.
A simple cluster can be affixed to a lamp bracket or tied up high near the ceiling with fishing line.
You can gather the balloons together with paperclips as described above.
Spiral garlands using air-filled balloons are made in the same way as the
helium spiral arch described above. They are of course non-floating and have
to be hung downwards from the ceiling.
Balloons for every occasion!
