I want to have 100 balloons over the dance floor with the strings hanging down. How do I keep them from floating around?


ANSWER

Hi there,

The best way to keep the balloons from moving around would be to fill the whole ceiling of the room.

The next best solution would be if there was a frame around the ceiling above the dance floor, as shown in the image I uploaded.

Alternatively, if you'd consider using the balloons upside down and without strings tied to them, you could follow the method explained in this article.

The basic steps are...

1. String one long piece of fishing line across the dance floor, but don’t tape it up to the ceiling yet (it’s easier to tie the balloons on down low!). You can tie it onto two posts, or use the back of chairs.

2. Blow up your balloons with air and attach a 2 ft long piece of fishing line to each of them. Then tie them to the long string of fishing line.

3. Once your long piece has all the balloons you want on it, raise it up to the ceiling. Secure the long piece of fishing line with scotch tape every 2 feet or so and on the ends as well.

The big advantage of this method is that you don't need to fill the balloons with helium, which is rather expensive.

Hi Melanie,

Is the image somewhere online? Then you could post the image URL (address in browser bar) in your comment.

Otherwise it's not possible to attach an image to a comment.

When you submit a question, you can upload up to 4 images.

Best of luck with your balloon ceiling!
