I would be holding the balloons for a photoshoot so I need an approximate number. Would 10m be enough? Also I'm having my 22nd birthday shoot and I already got 10 balloons of gold and white colours. I'd like to get additional ones so do I go for peach, pink or black?


Answer

Hello Jay,

I would calculate at least 1m (about 40 inches) per balloon. This should give you enough to tie the knots and vary the length of the ribbons. I am assuming you don't want all balloons floating at the same height above or around you, right?

The smallest size of curling ribbon rolls has 66 feet (approximately 20 meters) of ribbon. That should just be enough for your 20 balloons.

As for the additional color to use with gold and white... that depends very much on your personal taste, your look and the color of your clothes.

From the 3 colors you mentioned, I would go with peach. Black could look elegant too, but it's another strong color like gold and white, creating more contrast.

Hope that helps, and I would love to see a picture of your photo shoot.
