One of the fastest and cheapest ways to learn balloon decorating is to find a resource with pictures, instructions, and lots of different balloon decorating ideas.
I’ve assembled a number of different videos and guides in this site, each intended to be helpful for a specific project or idea. However, if you are putting on a grand event, a special birthday, or decorating a wedding with balloons, you can’t really take those videos with you very easily.
There are classes and courses offered by craft stores and professional balloon decorators but if you don’t have a lot of time or money, or aren’t looking to make a career out of balloon decorating, then a simple book that can walk you through how to make balloon swags, arches, columns, overhead canopies, and centerpieces should give you all you need to make your event extra special.
My favorite book on balloon decorating is called Balloon Decor Secrets. What I like best about it is that it’s an ebook you can buy and download immediately and it doesn’t cost any more than a book from a bookstore. I can just print out the sections I need as I need them and take them with me wherever I need to go when making balloon decorations.
I’ve also been able to use it to help my friends learn balloon decorating. When I pitch in to decorate a party with one of my friends, I give her a print out of, say, a set of balloon column instructions and I take a separate print out of a swag I’m making and we’re not having to share from the same book. My friend will be learning as she goes and I don’t have to be helping her while also constructing my own piece of the decorating plan. We get done more quickly this way.
Once you’ve mastered a few of the basic balloon decorating sculptures, practice doing an entire party for someone in your family or for a friend. Plan the decor, the layout, the colors and coordinate the making of all the decorations. Take pictures of all your practice work and any work you do for friends or family. These pictures can become your portfolio of work. With a portfolio, you can start attracting more clients, put up a website to get local business, advertise in your local paper and launch your own balloon decorating company. All it requires is that you take ACTION if this is your goal.
If you want to learn balloon decorating and don’t want to spend a lot of time or money doing it – just need to get right to the instructions – check out Balloon Decor Secrets – the pictures on the website alone will give you lots of balloon decoration ideas.
