Hello, I want to make 4' Paw Patrol themed balloon columns for my children's birthday party. There are six main colors, each representing a different puppy (red, orange, pink, yellow, green and blue). I notice a lot of spiraling balloon columns only include four colors. How would I arrange the balloon colors to form a spiral style column? Or would I have to stack the colors in rows instead?


Thank you for your help.

ANSWER

Hi Hector,

To achieve a spiral pattern with 6 colors you would have to create the column with clusters of 6 balloons each. Best would be to use 5 inch balloons. 11" balloons would be too large for a 6 cluster column.

However, creating clusters of 6 balloons is rather difficult. You'd make it easier for yourself if you stick to 5 colors, using clusters of 5 balloons.

How to achieve the spiral pattern is explained on this page about balloon arches.

How about using 5 colors for the column, and the 6th color for a big topper balloon? The topper balloon could be either latex or mylar.

Alternatively, if you really want the 6 colors equally used in the column, you could stack the balloons as you mentioned yourself. But this would mean that you loose the nice spiral pattern.

Here's a good video showing how to create a 5 color balloon column:



Best of luck!

Would love to see a photo of your Paw Patrol columns.
