If you're looking for a way to add instant visual appeal to any event venue, consider decorating with colorful balloon bouquets. As eye-catching as they are budget-friendly, balloon bouquets will help you get the most bang for your buck.
The size of your balloon bouquet will depend on how large your venue is and what you're using it for. For instance, if you want to use a bouquet as a table centerpiece, you'll typically need three to four helium-filled balloons. You'll also need ribbon and a weighted item, such as a stuffed animal or a box, to hold the bouquet down. You can use larger balloon bouquets to welcome guests through doorways, highlight specific areas, or fill in corners.
Depending on your event-planning budget and the amount of time you have, either make the balloon bouquets yourself or have them made by a company that specializes in event decor. Use the celebration's theme as a starting point when designing the bouquets.
Here are some creative ideas to get you started.
1. Birthday Balloon Bouquets
Celebrate the birthday boy or girl by choosing balloons in his or her favorite color, as well as numbers reflecting their age. For instance, include a mix of pink and purple balloons, as well as silver or gold number-shaped balloons, for an elegant look.
If you're hosting a child's birthday party, pick balloons featuring designs that reflect the theme, such as animals for a zoo-inspired soiree. Create a cohesive look throughout a princess-themed space with crown- and castle-shaped balloons in the bouquet.
2. Glowing Balloon Bouquets
If you're planning an after-hours event, such as a cocktail party or an evening wedding reception, light up the night with a glowing balloon bouquet. Start with clear balloons that are pre-filled with small LED string lights and transform them into stunning bouquets.
Glowing balloon bouquets make ideal table centerpieces, or you can place a small one next to each guest's place setting. Send the guests home with individual bouquets as party favors.
You can customize the look of the bouquets by using lights that reflect the event theme, such as school colors for a graduation celebration, or red and green for a Christmas gathering. If you're using an outdoor venue, place the illuminated balloon bouquets along pathways as extra lighting elements, along stair railings, on balconies, or scattered throughout the yard, patio, or country barn.
