To really make your party “pop” try balloon arches that really stand out! If you want your party to be absolutely amazing, don’t stick with the same old thing. Instead, mix up the theme, the colors, and the shapes to make one outstanding party decoration.

This arch idea was created for a little girl’s 7th birthday party. The colors are bright and the accents include twisting balloons that act as climbing vines, large balloon flowers centered along the arch, spiraled twisting balloons. The colors include light green, prime green, red, pink, and orange. By varying the shades of colors, they’ve added more depth and contrast to the entire arch.

Sure, it’s beyond colorful. It’s breath-taking. That’s an arch that would make your guests stop and stare. It’s completely appropriate for the theme. Kind of dreamy, like a doorway to the fantasy room inside.

You can take this same concept and do similar arches for any event. For a wedding, you might do balloon arches all in white with white accents. By using different shapes instead of different colors, you are still adding loads of interest to the decoration. For a silver wedding anniversary, the accents could be in shades of silver and blue, for a Valentine’s party they could be all white and red. The options are endless, of course.

Inside, flowers like the ones used in the balloon arch hang from the ceiling inside. The DIY balloon centerpieces are made with one round balloon wrapped with braided twisting balloons. At the base of each centerpiece are more small balloon flowers.

Balloon decorators have mastered the art of combining different shapes to make balloon arches that are this unique. Once you know the trick used to attach balloons together, you can build your own incredible arches for birthday parties, weddings, and other special occasions.

  1. i love this most beautiful arch , i have never seen such a spectaular arch like this one.

  2. I love this arch i can’t stop looking at it, and i am planning to make one for my grandaughter’s 6th birthday party.

  3. Charlene – isn’t it adorable? I am sure your 6 year old grandaughter will be blown away! If you’re up for sharing, I’d love to add a pic of the arch you do to this page. The more examples I gather, the more ideas everyone has for their parties.

    My oldest turns sixteen in a few weeks and I’m trying to come up with an arch appropriate for his age and interests. In fact, in my next post I was going to give some tips for organizing your balloon supplies and tools that come in handy. I did try using an electric air pump (the kind you use for an air mattress) to blow up some balloons over the weekend and it worked really well on round balloons – didn’t work at all on the twisting balloons.

    Good luck!
