Balloons are the quintessential party decoration. If you have attended any party, chances are you would have seen the host adorned the event with balloons. However, you will be surprised to learn that most people do not factor in the balloons’ colours when making their purchases, resulting in awkward colour combinations that clash with the party’s aesthetics.
The importance of pairing your balloons in the right colour combinations cannot be understated. The right balloon colours can make your party “pop”, whereas the wrong combinations will likely leave your guests scratching their heads. So if you are currently planning a party and sourcing for your party balloons, let us share the ideal colour combinations you should go with to ensure your party stands out.
Black and gold balloons
If you are planning to throw a classy party, balloons that are gold and black in colour are going to be your best bet as these two colours are generally associated with sophistication and wealth, making them ideal for a fancy party.
Silver and gold balloons
If you are not a fan of the colour black or find it too dark for the occasion, silver works as a great alternative to black balloons because it does not take too much away from the “classy” theme that black and gold balloons provide. Moreover, similar to gold, silver is typically associated with wealth as well.
Rose gold, pink, and white balloons
For a touch of feminine class, go with metallic rose gold balloons augmented with both pink and white balloons. This colour combination is ideal for bachelorette parties or a girls’ night out.
Pastel yellow, peach, and white balloons
Given Singapore’s weather, which is typically sunny all year round, you may want to consider balloon colours that complement the climate of our sunny island. Go with bright colours, such as yellow and peach, as they exude warm weather vibes. Complementing them with white balloons will help tone the colours down a bit so that your party would not be too “warm”.
Pastel pink and blue balloons
Pastel colours are often associated with childhood and innocence. So when you are planning a child’s birthday party, pastel pink and blue balloons should definitely be on your shopping list. Bonus points if you are going for a unicorn-themed party as these two colours perfectly complement this motif.
Pastel purple, metallic purple, and confetti balloons
For fans of the colour purple, why not base your purchasing decision around your favourite colour? Sure, a single shade of purple can work, but utilising only a single colour is arguably boring and would not do much to elevate your party’s aesthetics. Instead, you can consider buying metallic purple and confetti-style balloons to complement your pastel purple balloons. Doing so will give you a variety while ensuring purple remains the central theme of your balloon decorations.
There are endless possibilities when it comes to mixing and matching your balloon colours. Have fun experimenting with the different colour combinations or go with what we have shared – the choice is yours. At the end of the day, you just have to ensure the colours fit the theme and purpose of your party. Alternatively, if you are unsure of the ideal colour combinations to go with, you can consult the party shop you intend to purchase the balloons from. Their staff will be familiar with the inventory and can advise you accordingly.
