I believe that no party is complete without a balloon, as far as I'm concerned one single balloon can create a party!
Personally I adore balloons when they are filled with helium, I love the way they float effortlessly in the air and I adore the way children are captivated by these incredible objects on the ends of string... I found them totally magical as a child and I still do.
Helium has its downsides though, it is expensive and is becoming more so as it is currently in short supply. Also, helium filled latex balloons, although beautiful, do not stay afloat long, they need to be filled on the day of the event and may only stay in the air for as little as 12 hours!
There is plenty of style that can be added with balloons just filled with good old oxygen. The good news is they are inexpensive and can last for weeks, here are some ideas and inspiration as to what to do with balloons at your next party!
Balloon backdrops create a fabulous focal point, photo opportunity, and a work of art!
Hanging balloons inject height to your decor without strings!
Balloon garlands are so simple to create, string your balloons together for a fun and bright bunting. This is a really good way to use balloons in an outdoor setting as they wont blow away!
