Top Tips For Balloon Decorating - Learn With Spotlight!
Spotlight provides an outstanding range of balloons and balloon accessories. We also provide a helium service, so you do not have to worry about that aspect of balloon decoration. Of course, when you decorate with balloons for the first time, some tips always prove useful. If you are curious how to use balloons at a party venue, be sure to check out the expert tips below.
What Are The Best Balloon Colours For My Venue?
The colour scheme you will choose for your balloons will have less to do with the venue and everything to do with the event you are decorating for. Birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, they all have recommended balloon colours you can use. Of course, this does not mean you should be limited in terms of creativity, as many balloon colours can be utilised for various events.
A common event you may use balloons for is a birthday. Fortunately, this is one of those events where there is little limitations in terms of colours. In most cases, primary colours work best. Of course, you can also go for a single colour or various shades of a single colour. For example, if the birthday boy prefers blue, you can choose birthday balloons in various shades of blue.
Weddings, on the other hand, can be a little trickier. In most cases, you will choose classic colours such as creme, white, ivory, and gold. However, weddings nowadays can be a little more modern, so you could also choose something like royal purple.
In addition to the classic colours, pastel colours work well for weddings too. However, you must be careful with the pastel colours you choose. Usually, ivory, lilac, and pink are the safest pastel colours you can implement for weddings and anniversaries.
Another event you may need balloons for is a baby shower. Fortunately, choosing colours for such an event is relatively simple, as you can go either neutral, pink, or blue. If you choose neutral colour, you can go for white balloons at your venue. For girls, you can choose various shades of pink and white. For boys, you can choose various shades of blue and white. It is really that simple.
What Can I Make With Helium Balloons?
Basic decorating with balloons is great, but you can take it a step further and create a shape with some helium balloons. At some parties, a masterpiece of helium balloons often draws everyone's attention. If you are looking for something along these lines, we have some great tips for you too.
Helium balloons are commonly used for table decorations. You can use both foil and latex balloons for this purpose, as both look wonderful at any venue. Of course, foil tends to be a little more durable. Therefore, they could be a consideration for a child's birthday party.
If you decide to make a table centrepiece with some balloons, always take into consideration the number of balloons you are using. Two is the minimum and three the maximum, otherwise your centrepiece would become overcrowded. The colours you choose for your centrepieces should also match the colour scheme you have used for decorations around your venue.
Floor decorations are also an option for helium balloons. When you decide to do this, do not forget that you will need a balloon weight to stop the balloons from floating to the ceiling. At Spotlight, you can buy balloon weights in your designed colour and design for an amazing price.
For balloon floor decorations, you can usually use more balloons than you would do for a centrepiece. In most cases, you will need a minimum of five balloons, depending on the overall size of the balloons you have obtained.
The beauty about floor decorations is that you can use a combination of foil and latex balloons. So, if you have some balloons to spare of each type, there is no better way than a floor decoration to incorporate them in the design of your venue.
When it comes to floor decorations, always remember that odd numbers of balloons always look better. While you could achieve a similar effect with even numbers, you will find that using odd numbers makes things a whole lot easier.
