Checklist ... to Plan Your Perfect Balloon Decor

To help you decide which balloon decor fits your needs best, here are the essential points to consider:

    How much time can you invest? 
    If you have limited time the balloon bouquet will be the best choice for you. You can prepare the table bases well in advance. On the actual day of your event you'll fill the balloons with helium and attach them to the ready made bases. Place them on the tables, give it a nice finish with some theme matching confetti ... and enjoy your party!
    How much money do you want to spend?
    If you have a tight budget, then again we'd recommend to go for the balloon bouquets. With relatively few balloons and inexpensive accessories you can create an amazing effect.
    How long should your decoration last?
    Most events, like birthday parties or weddings, will just be a single day or evening. So the helium filled designs will do fine. If your balloon decor should last longer than one day you have three choices. You could either go for a display with air filled balloons, or you use mylar balloons or you use helium filled latex balloons treated with 'hi-float', a product which increases their floating time.
    Where does your event take place?
    Planning balloon decor in your own home is fairly easy because you already know the dimensions and the layout of your room.

    If you are using a venue for your event it is important to check it out well in advance. Make an appointment with whoever is in charge and discuss your plans with him/her. Take a measuring tape, a notepad, a pencil and a camera with you. Draw a rough sketch of the room, measure and note down the dimensions.

    How many tables will be there? How will they be arranged? Is there a stage or a dance floor that you might want to highlight? Can the entrance or exit be framed with an arch? What is the overall look and feel of the room you are using? Traditional, modern, neutral? What are the main colours?

    Are there any special considerations, e.g. peculiarities to the shape of the room, the height of the ceiling, suspended light fittings over the tables etc. This is where your camera becomes a valuable tool. If possible take plenty of photographs from different viewpoints. These will help you visualize, plan and finally create your balloon decor.

Decisions, Decisions, Decisions!
