Spiral Balloon Column [Image Source: "Ask Me For a Balloon" YouTube Channel]
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.
If you are using 11 inch balloons for your column and assuming that you plan to do a 4 cluster column, you would need about 6 balloons per foot.
Here's an explanation about achieving the spiral pattern when using 4 colors (it's for a spiral arch, but the system is the same for a tower):
