We are planning a party and want our balloon tower to be 6 foot tall. I want to make a stand and I have a 3 1/2 foot pole to use will this work? Also I am planning on using 4 colors approximately how many balloons would I need for each tower?
I believe if you use a large topper (e.g. a 30 or 36 inch round balloon or a mylar balloon), you should get close to 6 feet in total height.

The image I uploaded is from a video tutorial from "Ask Me For a Balloon." They have a fantastic channel with lots of balloon decorating tutorials.
Good luck with creating your balloon towers!
