When it comes to wedding receptions, balloons may not be the first thing to come to mind. Instead, we start to think about flowers and garland and shimmering, white swaths of draped fabric. We make a list or talk to a decorator and suddenly the cost of those items starts to…well, excuse the pun…”balloon” out of control.
This is a great video demonstration of how to make a balloon column – I only wish it was in English! However, the videos I could find in English were played at super speed and at least with this video you can follow the steps fairly easily. Watch the video and then read the directions I’ve helped outline below:
I don’t know that it’s the formal term, but I call balloons gathered together by their curling ribbon or twisted together to form a group “clusters” of balloons. Balloon clusters are a great decoration idea for kids parties, to flag your house for an event, or to dress up the boundaries of your party area.
Elegant balloon centerpieces can be a beautiful AND inexpensive way to dress up a wedding reception, buffet table, or gift table. Watch this video demonstration of how to make an elegant balloon centerpiece and come up with unique ideas for your next event, reception or party.
Stuffed balloons are a great idea for party decorations. Kids think these are the coolest thing ever but they work really well for grown-up parties, too. Best of all, they’re not as hard to do as you might think.
