I’m sharing some of my favourite ways to style latex balloons………
Latex balloons have been a party essential forever!
Not only are they a cheap party decoration they can be styled in so many amazing ways.
PARTY TIP: I buy a helium tank from the warehouse (keep an eye out for when they go on sale) and fill my balloons up at home! A $50 tank easily fills a number foil balloon and several latex balloons and can be stashed away for another party! One tank will only fill two jumbo balloons! You can also hire larger helium tanks from balloon shops if you have lots of balloons to fill.
Style latex balloons in bunches with a number foil balloon for a real statement or have a bunch on either side of table to balance the table visually.
(We have more black number balloons arriving in the next week)
Using balloon sticks instead of helium is a cheaper alternative and it also makes great party favors that children can take home their own party balloon!
Create a balloon number shape backdrop for a birthday party table.
I made these pretty glitter feather balloon tails for Sophia’s Swan Lake Party, you can find the tutorial on the blog.
PARTY TIP: Use a funnel to fill nude balloons with confetti, gently fit the neck of the balloon around the funnel and gently push the confetti through with a pen or pencil (I like to use the rubber end of a pencil) When filling the balloon with helium do so slowly.
Here’s a guideline for filling balloons with helium.
Create a balloon garland, here’s a simple video DIY tutorial by classy clutter.
PARTY TIP – If your hubby has a compressor its quicker to fill them up instead of blowing them up by mouth. If filling with helium make sure you fill them the day of the event
Using balloon weights is the perfect way to weigh down your helium balloons so they don’t float away!
Just to note, all balloons are temperamental and delicate they can be affected by heat. When inflating balloons be careful not to tear the neck of the balloon, fill them too fast or too big.
