Looking for a cost-effective yet impactful way to add some life to your party? If you’re thinking of balloons, you’re off to a good start!
Balloons are a classic party décor choice, but in recent years, it’s been coming back bigger and better with even more varied stylings. Gone are the days where you simply see party balloons in primary colours, haphazardly blue-tacked onto the wall. Today, balloon decorations are serious business!
If you’re looking for ways to refresh your balloon décor concept for an upcoming event, you’re in for a treat! Here are our suggestions for using balloons at your next party:
1. Dazzle through with glitter
Plain balloons are classic and elegant, but when you want to make people go ‘wow’, you can’t go wrong with some glitz and glamour. You can find glitter-infused helium balloons in Singapore at speciality balloon suppliers. These come with glittery confetti inside the balloons.
Apart from serving as a wonderful backdrop, confetti balloons can also double up as huge party poppers. Yes – while we can’t have fireworks here in Singapore, we can enjoy the explosive spectacle through popping confetti balloons!
2. Go tropical
Surely, you’ve seen those life-sized flamingo floats that have become synonymous with summer parties. If you don’t have one of those, you can make do with a flamingo foil balloon.
A summer-themed party also can’t do without tropical fruit motifs! Why not go DIY on these? For a fun project, you can use regular balloons to create ‘fruits’ – for example, use orange-coloured balloons as oranges, and yellow balloons as lemons. To make them look more like fruits, all you have to do is use green paper to create ‘leaves’. When put together, these colourful fruity balloons are sure to brighten up your party!
3. Get a rainbow balloon arch
Speaking of colourful, the sky’s the limit when it comes to balloons. With so many colours available, you can even bring a rainbow right into your party! Using balloons in the colours of the rainbow to form a balloon arch is a great idea that will serve as an amazing photo spot.
Trying to DIY a balloon arch may not be something for everyone, but not to fret – you can also engage balloon decorators to help you put up your desired balloon arrangement.
4. Customise your balloon centrepiece
One way to make things special is to customise your balloons! Having a custom message on one or two centrepiece balloons will instantly lend a personal touch to the event.
For example, for a birthday party, you can have the balloon customised with the birthday boy or girl’s name, age, or have a custom birthday greeting printed. Customised balloons are an easy way to make your party decorations truly unique and memorable!
As you can see, there are plenty of ways to make your party decorations better using balloons. Because they’re so versatile and also economical, there’s really no stopping you from going wild with your party balloon décor!
