Specialty Balloon Printers Easy Balloon Decorating Ideas

Vibrant, cheerful and fun – balloons are often a regular staple at birthday parties and celebrations, and for good reason. Balloons are a cost-effective and easy solution when it comes to creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere at just about any venue. Plus there’s loads of different balloon decorating options to choose from to suit your specific event theme or preferred colours.

Not sure where to start when it comes to choosing your balloons and balloon accessories for your gathering? We’ll take you through some options to consider as well as provide you with some popular balloon decorating ideas.

 

What Kind of Balloon?

Foil or latex? Printed or unprinted? Large or standard sized? There are a lot of different options to choose from when it comes to deciding what balloons to purchase for your event or celebration. When trying to decide on the type of balloon to purchase, try considering the following:

  • The location of your event – use latex balloons indoors or in shaded outdoor areas to maximise float times. Foil balloons (being less elastic than latex balloons) are best used indoors as they can be prone to popping after exposure to heat.
  • The size of your event/party venue – if you’re hosting your event in a large space, you may want to consider purchasing larger balloons for more visual impact.
  • What balloon shape do you need – are you looking for a regular round or love heart shaped balloon, or are you chasing a one-of-a-kind custom shaped balloon? If you’re looking for a non-standard balloon shape, you’ll want to purchase custom foil balloons that can made into just about any shape imaginable.
  • How will you inflate your balloons – will you be using helium or regular air to inflate your balloons? Inflating balloons with helium will allow them to float while tied to balloon ribbons. Balloons that are inflated using regular air won’t float and therefore need to be secured into place with tape or attached to balloon sticks and cups to stay upright.
  • Custom print – if you’re looking to print a custom message, image or logo onto your balloon, this can be done on both foil and latex balloons.
  • Quantity of balloons – when looking to weigh up costs, latex balloons are generally cheaper to buy than foil balloons.

 

Displaying Your Balloons

Once you’ve got your balloons in hand, there are lots of different ways to display them at your event. Some of popular balloon display methods include:

  • Arches – tie balloons together in groups of four and secure them to an arch shaped wood or wire frame.
  • Flowers – tie balloon “petals” together to form a flower shape. Don’t forget to attach a different coloured balloon in the middle to form the centre of the flower.
  • Table centrepieces – use balloon sticks and cups to hold inflated balloons upright and create balloon table centrepiece displays.
  • Balloon wall – inflate balloons with regular air before attaching them to a foam board or wall using tape.
  • Party bags – tie helium filled balloons to party bags and display on a giveaway bag table for your guests to take home at the end of the celebration.
  • Ceiling display – fill balloons with helium and float them to the ceiling. Arrange your balloons in coloured patterns to create a decorative effect.

 

Add Some Accessories

When it comes to decorating with balloons, there are some specialty accessories that can help make your life easier while also displaying your balloons in a specific way. Some notable accessories that are super handy when it comes to balloon decorating include:

  • Balloon inflators – save yourself the hassle of blowing up all of your balloons! Fill large quantities of balloons with air quickly using either a balloon hand pump or electric balloon inflator.
  • Balloon sticks and cups – are a great way to keep your air inflated balloons upright and in place on a display.
  • Balloon ribbons and clips – the perfect choice for tying down helium balloons to chairs and to hold on to your balloons so they don’t float away.
  • Balloon weights – perfect for keeping helium filled balloons secure to the ground or tabletop.
